Nursing Interview
Question One
 Tell me About Yourself?
I am a registered nurse privately employed as a home care assistant and working with various health care providers. I graduated in May last year with an associate degree in Science of Nursing. Previously, I had studied a Liberal Arts Education course at Westchester Community College. I also graduated with an associate degree in nutrition and dietetic from Clara Campoamor in Madrid, Spain. As a result, I have provided high-quality nursing care for patients with many different ailments. My work has majorly focused on the diagnosis, prognosis, and rehabilitation of my patients. I have previously worked with Hospital Severo Ochoa in Madrid, Spain as a nutritionist. Simply, my duties were to instruct clients on proper meal preparations and die therapies.
Question Two
Why do you Want to Leave Your Current Job?
Although I have had a good working experience with my previous and my current employers, I have the urge to advance my career to levels that I cannot achieve in this companies. Currently, I have the BIS and ACIss certification and feel that I need to provide my services to the community at a higher level of engagement. In addition, I am soon going to graduate with a bachelor degree in nursing. Due to experience and academic qualifications,  I see this job as an opportunity that will enable me to make maximum use of my skills. Moreover, I will be working on the medical surgical floor where I will have the opportunity to learn from the most skillful nurses. Since the job that I am applying for also involves pediatric care, I will also have the opportunity of practicing what I have learned in school. Therefore, I see this job as an opportunity to gain the necessary experience to advance my career as I seek to pursue further studies in the field. After acquiring significant experience in providing children nursing care, I will undertake a postgraduate course of masters of science in nursing degree. Importantly, this course will enable me to get the necessary expertise to become a pediatric nurse. In addition, the skills that I will get from the training will enable me to offer better services in the hospital.
Question Three
What are your Strengths (Joyce, 2017)?
I am a hard worker and I have demonstrated that in my previous work positions where I obtained good results. Therefore, I am able to complete my tasks even in the most difficult situations.  In addition, I am a fast learn, which enables me to overcome any weaknesses that I may have in my workplace. Finally, I have good inter-personal skills and I am also flexible in the manner that I carry out my services. The above attributes will enable me to succeed in most of the tasks that I will undertake.
Question Four
What are Your Weaknesses?
My major weakness concerns my ability to speak and write the English language. Since English is my second language, I am not always able to express myself clearly. Similarly, I always have a challenge of understanding some English terms, especially those that are not commonly used. So far, my efforts to learn English have started to bear fruits, and I can know understand the meaning of most of its words. As a result, I have the appropriate English language proficiency to carry out my activities.
Question Five
Explain how you Overcome a Major Obstacle (Fry, 2016)?
I view obstacles as opportunities to put my skills and knowledge to test. Primarily, I consider them as inevitable occurrences in the workplace and things that I should face and overcome. Therefore, I seek to understand the nature of the obstacle by identifying the core issue and its impacts in the workplace, such as the parties affected by it and the most appropriate approaches to overcoming it. For example, understanding and applying the English language in my career was a major obstacle to me. However, I realized that by enrolling in the English classes, and practicing what I have learned in my real life situations would enable me to obtain mastery of the language. Currently, English is not a major obstacle and I can communicate properly in its verbal or written form.
Question Six
Why did you Choose Your College Major?
I chose my major in nursing because it is my passion to serve the community by providing healthcare service. I realize that the society needs help in understanding various health issues and also getting appropriate treatment for its ailments. Therefore, I chose this major to enable me to gain the necessary skills and knowledge to provide these services to my society. On the same note, I regard advancement in my career as an opportunity to enable me to provide better healthcare services to my community.
Question Seven
Why do you Want to Work for Us?
I was able to establish that your organization deals with the pediatric care and I consider it as the best opportunity for me to practice what I have learned in school. In addition, I have been intending to move to California from New York, where I currently reside. Since your organization has an impressive reputation for excellence, I consider it to be an appropriate workplace that will enable me to achieve my career goals. Most importantly, I will be able to gain more experience in my work by providing health care services in a new environment. I consider this new position as an opportunity to learn about the specific needs of the Californian society and expand my knowledge in dealing with a diverse range of people.

Dear Kelvin,
Your paper is well researched and concise. Although you have eliminated most of your common mistakes, you still made a few errors in the paper.
Comma
Do not use commas to set off essential elements of the sentence, such as clauses beginning with that (relative clauses). That clauses after nouns are always essential. That clauses following a verb expressing mental action are always essential.
 
That clauses after nouns:
 
The book that I borrowed from you is excellent.
The apples that fell out of the basket are bruised.
That clauses following a verb expressing mental action:
 
She believes that she will be able to earn an A.
He is dreaming that he can fly.
I contend that it was wrong to mislead her.
They wished that warm weather would finally arrive.
Examples of other essential elements (no commas):
 
Students who cheat only harm themselves.
The baby wearing a yellow jumpsuit is my niece.
The candidate who had the least money lost the election.
Examples of nonessential elements (set off by commas):
 
Fred, who often cheats, is just harming himself.
My niece, wearing a yellow jumpsuit, is playing in the living room.
The Green party candidate, who had the least money, lost the election.
Incorrect: Erica felt as if she might faint from hunger, therefore, she decided a trip to McDonald’s was necessary.
Correct: Erica felt as if she might faint from hunger. Therefore, she decided a trip to McDonald’s was necessary.
Fragments
Fragments are incomplete sentences. Usually, fragments are pieces of sentences that have become disconnected from the main clause. One of the easiest ways to correct them is to remove the period between the fragment and the main clause. Other kinds of punctuation may be needed for the newly combined sentence.

Possible Revision: Purdue offers many majors in engineering, such as electrical, chemical, and industrial engineering.

Elements of a paragraph
 
To be as effective as possible, a paragraph should contain each of the following: Unity, Coherence, A Topic Sentence, and Adequate Development. As you will see, all of these traits overlap. Using and adapting them to your individual purposes will help you construct effective paragraphs.
Paragraph
Unity
 
The entire paragraph should concern itself with a single focus. If it begins with one focus or major point of discussion, it should not end with another or wander within different ideas.
 
Coherence
 
Coherence is the trait that makes the paragraph easily understandable to a reader. You can help create coherence in your paragraphs by creating logical bridges and verbal bridges.
 
Logical bridges
 
The same idea of a topic is carried over from sentence to sentence
Successive sentences can be constructed in parallel form
Verbal bridges
 
Key words can be repeated in several sentences
Synonymous words can be repeated in several sentences
Pronouns can refer to nouns in previous sentences
Transition words can be used to link ideas from different sentences
 
 
Awkward Wording
Also avoid awkward sentences. Normally, our purpose in writing is to make our writing clear, easy and fast to read.
Sentences are awkward for several different reasons. Here are the five main ones:

  1. A sentence can be awkward because it is not parallel.

For example: I want to study law, to work hard, and becoming a good lawyer.

  1. A sentence can be awkward because it has mixed construction.

For example: A person taking on the role of caregiver for another, a sick elder, perhaps, is a very demanding job.

  1. A sentence can be awkward because it has unnecessary nominalizations.

For example: Attempts at explanations for increases in voter participation in this year’s elections were offered by several candidates.

  1. A sentence can be awkward because it has unnecessary passive voice

For example: Attempts at explanations for increases in voter participation in this year’s elections were offered by several candidates.

  1. A sentence can be awkward because it is full of wordiness and gobbledygook

 
 
I believe that you will study all the issues that I have highlighted. Your part of the bid is 65%. Your grade for this paper is 60, which corresponds to College D level.
 
Yours Sincerely,
Eirine
