Virtual Healthcare Job Interview

Virtual Healthcare Job Interview

AllHealthcare and Monster

Question:
Tell me about a time when you had to handle a highly stressful situation.

Answer:
That’s a way of life in this profession. If you can’t handle the stress, you have no business being a nurse. We all work as hard and as fast as we can, but sometimes that’s just not enough. We get complaints and have to deal with them. It’s just the nature of the game. There are always shortages and budget problems. You just have to deal with it.

Feedback:
This is not the best answer. In addition to sounding very negative, this answer does not address the question about a specific time. This answer has the tone of someone with a defeatist attitude. That may be the way things are, but the answer points out all the negatives of the job and none of the positives. This could be interpreted as coming from a person who is burnt out or has given up trying to improve the situation.
