    Hi I'm currently doing an access course to get into university in September for adult nursing.

    I currently work in a nursing home and dementia unit a few shifts a week but have recently passed a maths and English assessment to become a bank HCA at the hospital. I have my interview on Thursday and I soooo want to get this job, but am really worried about the interview.

    Was just wondering if anyone here has had an interview to become a bank HCA, works at the hospital and if anyone knows what kind of questions will be asked or any tips. (I've had no experience besides the year in the nursing home and that interview was so basic)

    I really would love to get this so any tips appreciated

    Thanks you x

    Hi. I work in a general hospital at the moment as a HCA on a Haemodialysis Unit, worked on a General ward and have also worked on a Mental Health ward, all as a HCA. Tips I can think of for your interview are: Smile a lot and try to relax as hard as it may be, answer questions open and honestly, talk about your experience of caring for others and why you want the job, tell the interviewers about your hopes to become a nurse and the fact that you are studying an Access course at the moment. They may ask you some scenario questions, so what you'd do in certain situations. Try be positive. Hope this helps! x
Are you going to a festival?
