I wore my black BR power suit, answered all the questions like a seasoned OB nurse (studied for the couple weeks leading to the interview) and did not shy away from telling them I already had two offers for other units, but it was there on the mother-baby unit I wanted to work. Three days later I accepted the offer 😊
