Nursing Aide

30 Interview Questions & Answers

Being a nurses aide often requires a great deal of physical exertion. Are you comfortable with physically demanding assignments?

Example #1
"Through my nursing aide career, I have spent many long hours on my feet and working shifts at non-traditional times. To be able to do this with ease, I have worked hard to be in the best physical shape that I can be by jogging on a regular basis, eating healthy and getting ample amounts of sleep each and every night."
Example #2

"I understand that while working as a nursing aide I will be asked to do some pretty extreme physical activity. Lifting patients and standing for long hours at a time comes easily to me as I've participated in sports and strength training. Being in great shape and eating healthy is a lifestyle choice that I have made and it will definitely help me as I move forward in my career."
Example #3
"I have always handled the physical requirements of the job with ease. Before lift systems were standard in inpatient rooms, we physically lifted patients into and out of their beds when needed. The long hours and standing for long periods of time come easily to me as well. I realized early in my career that I needed to care for myself and my physical well-being outside of work and I continue to do this to this day."
