If you are lucky, you will be dealing with a nurse staffing agency that has an interview "scheduler"- someone who will call you & establish a specific time for the interviewing nurse to call you, at a time when you know you are not working & can dedicate a certain amount of time specifically for the interview; or, your agency has established an exclusive contract with the facility & conducts the nursing interviews for them.
Once you have applied for a travel nurse position(s), the forthcoming interview is something you can prepare for, in fact, because you will not be visible to your interviewer, you can have notes available to openly refer to during the process.
These job interviews vary wildly, from some that amount to nothing more than a nurse manager reciting some information about her unit & the facility then asking you to come aboard, to others that are similar to passing the NCLEX or running a code on the phone! There is no way to know in advance, so be prepared for the worst & be pleasantly surprised when all your preparation was for nothing (except to save it for the next one).
Remember, this interview is also time for you to find out all YOU need to decide whether or not this is a travel nursing assignment that you might like. Be prepared with your own questions.
