Auxiliary nurse interview

So, I have an auxiliary nursing interview coming up at the end of july, working for the NHS,
I just wondered if anyone has any experience with the interview process and what kind of questions I should expect to come up so that I can start to prepare and do more research please?

I'll try and give you some examples of things you may be asked okay....



Why did you decide to become a nursing assistant
What if any experience do you have in a nursing setting.
Are you prepared to work dayshift and Nightshift and weekends
What would you do if a patient became aggressive
How do you build relationships with other healthcare professionals
Why do you want to work at this healthcare facility
Describe a time you went above and beyond for a patient.
What would you do if you saw a patient being treated poorly by another healthcare professional
Are you comfortable lifting, bathing, and assisting patients with using the bathroom
What are your long-term career expectations

You may also be asked stuff on the 6 C's of nursing ( look up this and learn it)
NMC code of practice is something else you may be asked about.

I would suggest you look at what I posted back in post #4 as each individual interview you get different from the previous person so you don't know what others have been asked.

Try not to be nervous and do your upmost best on the day, prepare as much as possible for your interview okay.

I actually didn’t get it, they said I didn’t expand enough on my answers, so from the suggestions I got, I’d say to make sure you say everything, even if you believe it sounds too obvious, research a lot about the hospital itself and any new buildings they’ve recently opened, and what it is that they specifically specialise in if they do, that’s where I was let down
