I think that you could be asked questions about your nursing capabilities, what you've learnt in uni/college and other questions regarding your hobbies and any past work experience in health care.

Hi

Which role have you applied for? Is it the Adult Nurse, or Nursing Officer role?

If it's the initial interview with the AFCO - You should know about the role you're applying for, where you cold be based, what you could be doing and explain why you want to join the RAF and understand what the role of the RAF is.

If it's a specialist interview with the Nursing team, then that will be more around your experience and professional knowledge etc.

Don't worry, it's not as bad as you think it's going to be!

Kind regards
Adam

Hi

Everything you really need to know is what's listed on the role page on the RAF Recruitment website (and the Trade Information Leaflet you'll have been linked to.) You'll need to know about the role of the RAF, your role that you're applying for (the easier bit if you're already qualified!) and how that fits into the RAF, where you could be posted etc.

You'll get asked why you want to join the RAF, whether you've looked into it and whether you're ready for it and it's the right decision for you too. You'll get chance to ask your own questions too.

Kind regards
Adam

Its a good career choice. Yes, there are ‘downs’ but plenty of ‘ups’ too. I would say ‘go for it’!

You can withdraw your application immediately and apply for the Navy, or get feedback on your interview, wait the amount of time it's been recommended before reapplying, and try again.

Don't rush into a decision at the first setback, though. You'll face interviews whichever service you apply for, and when asked, how will you justify switching from RAF to Navy?

I believe they're asking about non-commissioned nursing roles in the RAF here, not the navy. RN is also an abbreviation for registered nurse.
