Interviews should include both theory and practice that linked to the position that you are being interviewed for so as to identify gaps earlier in line with PDP's.

Interacting with internationally travelling passengers on health issues. Travelers can be difficult when they don't understand what is required of them, especially when they are in a hurry to get to their next destination. Staff moral is often low because of the long hours and staff shortage. There is lack of growth and the income is also not enough. You learn various things daily as you get exposed to different nations.

I was forced tonresign because of abusive management. The work is not balanced. There is a lack of resources, shortage of staff. Mangagement is very unprofessional including the ministers and MEC's. Everything is expected from a nurse. Everything that is wrong with this department a nurse is blamed.We are underpaid and even forced to work above our scope of practise

Department of health should have fair way of absorbing community service health professionals.
If they can easily place us for community service it should be the same with job placement

If the department could consider paying nursss more. The work load it above staff and the equipment is not efficient. The hours put in and expected from nurses are too much. The salary is okay.

Typically you can expect to be extremely busy, many patients that need medical care. You learn to be creative and find other ways of getting things done because the available resources aren't always enough. You learn to work under immense pressure and extreme conditions.

Helping patients and constant learning is the best part of the job.
