Improve your chances of landing a job in Nursing

There are many jobs available in the nursing field.  You have decided on a field that is high in demand.  However, you will decrease your chances of landing the perfect job if you are not careful.  Below, you will find a list of tips that will help you increase your chances of getting the job you want in nursing.

Tip 1: You need to be qualified for your position, and in order to do that, you need to make sure that you have as much training as is necessary.  For example, if you want to specialize in geriatrics, then you can specialize in this field while still in training for something else.  This will increase your chances of landing the right job in the field that you desire most.

Tip 2: How excited and passionate are you about your field? Don’t let anxiety overpower your enthusiasm.  You want to exude this passion during your interview.  If you have the passion to help patients recover from a stroke and regain their mobility, you can share this with the hiring manager.  Interviews tend to make people nervous, but there is no reason to be.  Instead, be excited!

Tip 3: Do you have a special talent or experience in the field you are working toward? You can use your resume to share this with others.  You have a lot to offer … and yes, you need to list your education and experience, but you also need to list everything that you can offer that would set you apart as the perfect candidate for the job.  You can save yourself a lot of time if you go ahead and list on your resume everything that could possibly help you during an interview.

Tip 4: Do you even realize how important you really are in your field? A lot of people consider it bragging if you list things that you, as an individual, are the best at; however, if you have confidence in your skills and abilities, then others will also share in that confidence.  You don’t want to sound or act like you don’t believe in yourself—because you do; it’s just easy to be nervous and overwhelmed when you are applying for the one position you want badly.  You know that working as a nurse will take a special individual; and it takes the knowledge that you worked hard to acquire in school.  Not everyone can be a nurse, but you can—and you should be proud of it!

Tip 5: Be sure to mind your manners and act professionally during your interview.  Yes, you need to be confident, but don’t be arrogant.  Be sure to dress appropriately, and always address someone professionally.  When talking about your past employers, do not say anything bad about them; otherwise, this is a red flag telling the prospective employer that if you ever quit or get fired from this position, you may go around saying bad things about their company as well.  Even if you are angry with your previous company, you need to keep these feelings to yourself.

When dressing for a nursing interview, be sure your shoes are clean and polished, your dress goes below your knees, your shirt is tucked in correctly, and if you are wearing a tie, make sure that it is clipped so that it doesn’t fly around.  Your hair should be neat and clean, preferably tied back out of your eyes—unless, of course, it is shoulder length or shorter.

Practice for your interview before you get there.  Think of possible questions that the interviewer may have for you and put them on a card.  Practice your answers with someone so you can be prepared for your interview.

Remember to relax before you go; and stay calm.  An interview is important and can land you the right job that you have worked hard to find.  If one interview does not work out, then you can try for another nursing job.  The field of nursing is a very large field—and there is room in it for you!
