October 23, 2009, Newsletter Issue #19: Mastering the Nurse Practitioner Interview

Tip of the Week

Even for the most experienced nurse practitioner, attending an interview can be stressful. But, investing time in preparation can make the interview process much easier, allowing you to smoothly answer questions, and make a lasting impression. Here are a few tips for having a better nurse practitioner interview.

Ask the recruiter for a detailed job description. A detailed job description will allow you insight into daily tasks and requirements. Having this information before the interview will allow you to highlight the most important qualities.

Answer interview questions directly. Sometimes, candidates won’t address a question because they don’t understand it. Instead of answer a vague question, ask for clarification. The hiring manager will appreciate your dedication to answering the question.

Stay away from “yes” and “no” answers. Every question provides an opportunity to sell yourself. So, instead of answering with a simple yes or no, expand your answer to give concrete examples, and engage the hiring managers.

Don’t forget to make eye contact. When interviewing for nurse practitioner jobs make sure to always make eye contact. This conveys your confidence and enthusiasm for the position.
