This will be the question that ends each and every interview and it is very important to come prepared with questions. More often than not, some of your questions will be answered throughout the dialogue of the interview. This is to be expected. While the questions you ask can vary to many degrees, having well thought out questions shows that you have interest in the position and in some of the minute details of the job. It is okay to have questions written down or typed out and to take notes during the interview.
"You've done a great job of answering some of my questions that I've had prepared throughout the interview. Thank you for that. The long-term fit is ideally what I'm looking for in my next job so I'm wondering what it is about this organization that keeps you working here and what do you love the most about working here?"
"If I have the opportunity to join your team and start working on your inpatient clinical unit, this will be my first experience working outside of outpatient care. Given this, what do you think my biggest challenges will be as I transition to this new type of clinical environment?"
"As a new graduate, the time frame for me to be up and running on my own is important for me to have some sort of expectation on. What does the orientation and training program look like in your department and what is an expected time frame for a new nurse to be working on their own in the unit?"
"Through my career as a nurse, some organizations have been great about promoting teamwork within the workplace and other places haven't. Can you tell me how this organization promotes teamwork within the workplace and how is teamwork generally promoted within the department?"
