What inspired you to pursue a career in the nursing field?
TIPS TO PREPARE
TOP ANSWERS
Example #1
"I have always wanted a career where I could help people, but when I first started college, I wasn't sure exactly what that meant. However, after volunteering at a hospital one summer, I was drawn to the nursing field. I feel like nurses are the backbone of the clinical system and not only do they keep the system running, they provide care to patients and their family members when it counts the most. Once I decided on nursing, I never looked back, and so far, it has been one of the best decisions of my life."
Example #2
"I am a career changer, as I worked as a corporate accountant in the hospitality field for over a decade. However, when my mother was undergoing treatments for cancer sever years ago was when I was inspired to pursue a career in nursing. Seeing the nurses care for my mother so compassionately through all stages of her cancer treatment made me realize I needed to devote my career to something more meaningful. I have nothing against accounting, it is a great career, but I feel like my time will be better spent if I am caring for others in my career instead of sitting behind a spreadsheet."

About Our Approach to Q&As
Our interview questions are created by writers, most of whom have a long history of recruiting and interviewing candidates. They do not necessarily have experience interviewing or working with the companies, careers or schools they may write for on MockQuestions.com. We strive to match our experts' background and expertise with the appropriate question sets found on our website.
