    Why do you think you are a good pediatric nurse?

      How to Answer

      This is a chance for you to 'sell yourself' to the interviewer. Share what you think sets you apart from other pediatric nurses who may be applying. Remember, be positive. Make sure to mention some of your personal qualities, such as compassion, rather than only your hard skills.

      "Even after all these years I look forward to waking up each morning and getting to work and helping patients begin to heal and get better faster. I'm willing to work longer hours if needed, as well. Since I have no children or domestic responsibilities, I can come to work really early and leave late without any hassles."

      Rachelle's Answer

      Try to dig a bit deeper, even looking into the characteristics listed in the job description. You could also refer to how your core values align with the values of the interviewing facility. Statements that include passion, drive, and hard work are ones that most interviewers hear all the time. To stand out, be sure to craft and memorize something memorable :)

      "I am a good pediatric nurse because respect, sensitivity, and empathy are at the core of my values. These values align very well with the mission of {hospital}, making me an excellent choice for your facility. In addition to these values, I am flexible, can prioritize under pressure, and am responsible for my actions."
