A practice nurse will treat and dress wounds as well as take blood samples, urine samples, and swabs. Further treatment and general health are two matters which practice nurses will consult and advise with patients. The key to answering this question is to provide a coherent description of the routine procedures you will perform as a practice nurse. Provide the interviewer with the impression you understand the overall mission of a nurse and not simply a list of duties in an average day.
This is a loaded question and a nasty little game that you will probably lose if you answer first. So, do not answer it. Instead, say something like, that's a tough question. Can you tell me the range for this position? In most cases, the interviewer, taken off guard, will tell you. If not, say that it can depend on the details of the job. Then give a wide range.
What is the pay? Does the job offer any benefits? What is the nurse-to-patient ratio?How long are your shifts -- eight, 10 or 12 hours?How do you go about scheduling? Is self-scheduling an option, or does someone else dictate the schedule?How long have most nurses been on the unit?
I am interested in a career at Operating Room Nurse. I want to know what is the best way to get a job at Operating Room Nurse. If you work at Operating Room Nurse, how did you get in?

While answering this question pay more attention to the positive aspects of the job and even when you mention the negative ones, do it in a positive manner.
I would recheck if I have really accomplished all my duties and obligations on my shift, then I would talk to my patient make sure she is stable and all her needs were met, and if she needs anything before I leave. Maybe helpout other co-workers if they are getting behind their schedules.

When I was promoted to DON, I was particularly satisfied at work. I felt that I had worked diligently on the med-surg floor for 10 years and the promotion was well-deserved. I also enjoyed the challenge of supervising my fellow nurses, though I always tried to remain a peer rather than an authority figure.
Try not to be too critical when answering this question. Instead, pick one of your weaknesses and try to turn it into a positive.
For example, you could be a perfectionist, which means that you sometimes take longer on tasks, but you make sure that they are completed to a high quality. It is important to make a negative into a positive as it doesn't make you appear overly critical and shows you can reflect on your own performance.
