Applicants are expected to carry the under-listed items to their interview venue on the day of the interview. As such, it’s important to get these items available in advance.

Proof of Application. Applicants must make sure they download and printout their proof of application and carry it to the nursing training interview. This will show that you truly applied to the said nursing training institution.
Photocopy of result slip. The applicant must carry along the photocopy of the results slip used in the application. In the event where an applicant combined two different results, the two must be carried along.
Passport Pictures. Each applicant must carry along two passport size pictures per result used. If an applicant combined two results in the application, the said applicant must carry four passport photos. Two for each result slip.
Proof of Interview Invite. This may sound weird but you have to show a proof that you have actually received a text message inviting you to the interview. Carry along with the mobile phone that the text was sent to and show the message on request.
Birth Certificate. All applicants are expected to come along with their birth certificate. Most nurses training colleges will however give you the chance to provide it within 30 days upon getting admission if you do not have it immediately.
Interview Fee. Last but not least, applicants would be expected to pay an interview fee upon arrival. The interview fee is expected to be GHS 100 as has been the norm over the years unless there are any recent changes.

2021 Nursing training interview questions to expect and answers?. Interviews can be rather terrifying because a lot is at stake. In this case, your whole education or your nursing carrier is on the line. You want to be considered for admission and you only have one opportunity to make a good first impression on the interviewers and to convince the whole panel or just one person on the panel to believe in you and sway the others into selecting you above all other applicants.

What will happen in your interview?

They will ask you questions that relate to your attitude to nursing, to your motivation, personality, your hobbies. They will try to understand who you are, and why you decided to become a nurse.

Try to show compassion, enthusiasm for nursing, understanding of your role in human society. But you should also show them that you understand that it is not an easy subject to study, and are ready to work hard to achieve your goals. Remember that your non-verbal communication–that means the emotions you show in this interview, is equally important as your interview answers. Let’s have a look at some questions you will face.

Questions you can get in your nursing school interview

  • Why did you choose nursing? First and foremost, you should know why. You should have a reason, and the reason should not be to pursue the dreams (or expectations) of your parents. Perhaps you can say that you always felt for the sufferers, or that you had a good role model in your family (another nurse). You can also connect your answer to a specific position you want to have in the future, let’s say working for the Red Cross in Africa, or whatever you dream of…. 
  • Why did you choose our college? Here you have two options. The first one (the less favored, but more honest) is referring to the location of the school, or other reasons that make the study with them convenient for you. The better answer consists in praising them for something they do (perhaps their reputation, the excellent study programs they have in place, great campus life, or anything else that got your attention on their website).
  • What are your core values? A tough question to answer, mostly becasue we often can not even tell what our values are–though each of us has some values, and acts accordingly. Love, hope, health, faith, empathy, compassion, movement–they will all resonate nicely with the members of the admission committee…
  • Can you name some of your qualities that would benefit you as a nurse? And is there anything you would like to improve on? What you say does not necessarily have to reflect in your interview presence—they understand that you experience stress, and cannot show them all your best cards. But you should believe that you have what it takes to become a great nurse—one day…On the other hand, humility can make wonders in the interviews. People in the interviewing committee prefer to choose humble students, people who are aware of their imperfections, people who believe that there is always room for improvement, and that learning never stops..
  • What do you consider the most challenging aspect of nursing? The answer to this question is very personal. I knew nurses who got emotionally attached to patients, and suffered terribly when their beloved did suffer, or when they died. But I also knew nurses who simply hated night shifts, and struggled to cope with the schedule of their job. And what do you consider the most challenging thing?
  • Nursing studies are hard and time demanding. Are you ready to handle that? What are you willing to sacrifice? You shouldn’t wear pink glasses in this interview. In average, 25% of students do not manage to graduate from nursing school. Seems like a high number? Well, they do not always drop out because of failing in exams. Reasons range from getting pregnant to not having money to continue. Show the interviewers that you understand it will be difficult to succeed, and that you expect to devote most of your time to studies.You can also say that you talked to other students, who helped you to understand what will be expected from you at school, and how challenging the experience will be.
  • We have quite a lot applicants for this nursing program. Why do you think we should choose you, and not some other applicants? Another tough nut to crack. Basically you have two options. One of them is listing your abilities and strengths that make from you a perfect applicant for a study program. Another one consists in humility, saying that you do not really know, that you have a strong desire to work as a nurse, but can’t tell whether you are better than the other applicants for the study program, since you have not met them in person…
  • Do you have any role model in life? You can go with some famous nurse, such as Clara Barton, or Edith Cavell. You can also opt for one of the charity figures, such as Mother Teresa. Another alternative is to pick someone who’s close to you, someone who works in healthcare and does a good job every day (your father, your uncle, a good friend of you, etc).
  • Do you watch trends in the industry? What caught your eye lately?
  • Except of studying, what do you plan to do while being at the college?
  • How do you handle stress?
  • Your friend Jason hasn’t come to class for a few days. Being a hardworking student, he very seldom skips classes. You know that he is applying to nursing schools in the past several weeks. You called his house and he said you could visit him. Enter the room and talk to Jason…
