Mastering Perioperative Nursing Interview Questions: A Guide To Surgical Conscience and Work-Integrate Study

Navigating the nursing interview process can be daunting, whether you’re a fresh graduate, transitioning to a new specialty, or an experienced nurse seeking a change. Preparation is key. As a nursing student going through my new graduate interviews, I encountered these questions during the interview process. In the past few years, I have assisted many students in addressing these same questions in their interviews. This blog post will explore two commonly asked interview questions for perioperative nursing positions. I will provide tailored responses for different stages of a nursing career. I hope this post proves helpful to you. Feel free to comment if you liked it or have any further questions. Enjoy!


Question 1

What does the term ‘surgical conscience’ mean to you? How do you apply this in your practice?

Perspective of Thinking: This question assesses your understanding of patient safety and commitment to maintaining the highest standards in surgical settings.

What the Recruitment Team is Looking For: A deep understanding of the importance of maintaining a sterile environment and the ability to uphold this standard consistently.

Approach: Use real-life examples to demonstrate your understanding and commitment to surgical conscience.

Top Candidate Response Example Ideas:

  • Nursing Student (New Graduate Interview):
    • Situation: Observing surgeries during clinical rotation.
    • Task: Understanding the principles of maintaining a sterile environment.
    • Action: Asking questions and taking notes.
    • Result: Commitment to upholding surgical conscience from the start of the career.
  • Transitioning Nurse (To Perioperative Program):
    • Situation: Collaborating with the perioperative team in a previous role.
    • Task: Understanding surgical procedures for post-operative care.
    • Action: Learning about surgical procedures and sterile techniques.
    • Result: Bringing an understanding of post-operative care to the perioperative program.
  • Experienced Nurse (New Role in Different Perioperative Facility):
    • Situation: A decade of experience as a perioperative nurse.
    • Task: Ensuring patient safety during surgeries.
    • Action: Voicing concerns about potential breaches in sterility.
    • Result: A decade-long commitment to surgical conscience.

Top Candidate Response Planning and Examples

Nursing Student (New Graduate Interview):

Situation: “During my final year of nursing school, I had the opportunity to observe several surgeries as part of my clinical rotation.”

Task: “While I was primarily there to learn and observe, I was also tasked with understanding the principles of maintaining a sterile environment.”

Action: “I noticed how meticulous the surgical team was about sterile technique. I asked questions and took notes to ensure I understood the importance of surgical conscience.”

Result: “To me, surgical conscience means being vigilant and uncompromising about patient safety. Even though I’m just starting my career, I’m committed to upholding these standards in every surgical setting I find myself in.”

Nurse (Transitioning to Perioperative Program):

Situation: “In my previous role as a medical-surgical nurse, I often collaborated with the perioperative team for post-operative patient care.”

Task: “It was crucial for me to understand the surgeries my patients underwent to provide the best post-operative care.”

Action: “I took the initiative to learn more about surgical procedures, sterile techniques, and the concept of surgical conscience from my colleagues in the operating room.”

Result: “Surgical conscience, to me, means a deep commitment to patient safety and the highest standards of care. As I transition to the perioperative program, I bring with me this understanding and the experience of ensuring patient safety post-operatively.”

Experienced Nurse (New Role in Different Perioperative Facility):

Situation: “In my ten years as a perioperative nurse at XYZ Hospital, I’ve been part of countless surgeries, ranging from routine to highly complex.”

Task: “Maintaining a sterile environment and ensuring patient safety was always the top priority.”

Action: “There were instances where I had to voice concerns about potential breaches in sterility, even if it meant challenging a senior surgeon’s actions.”

Result: “To me, surgical conscience is an unwavering commitment to the well-being of the patient. It’s about speaking up when necessary and always striving for the highest standards of care. As I transition to this new facility, I bring a decade of experience and a steadfast commitment to surgical conscience.”

Top Candidate Responses

  • Nursing Student (New Graduate Interview): “To me, ‘surgical conscience’ is the unwavering commitment to maintaining a sterile environment during surgical procedures. As a nursing student, I’ve observed surgeries and recognised the pivotal role of the scrub nurse in upholding this principle. It’s not just about the technicalities but also the moral responsibility to ensure patient safety. Every time I was in the operating theatre, I made it a point to ask questions, take notes, and internalise the importance of surgical conscience. As I transition into my professional role, I believe this foundational understanding will guide me in always prioritising patient safety.”
  • Transitioning Nurse (To Perioperative Program): “Having worked in a different nursing area, I’ve always been aware of the broader principles of patient safety. ‘Surgical conscience’ signifies the heightened responsibility in a surgical setting. It’s about ensuring a sterile field and the respect and professional integrity every team member brings to the OR. In my previous role, I collaborated closely with the perioperative team and learned about the intricacies of surgical procedures. As I transition to the perioperative program, I bring this foundational understanding and a commitment to always uphold the highest standards of surgical conscience.”
  • Experienced Nurse (New Role in Different Perioperative Facility): “With over a decade in the perioperative field, ‘surgical conscience’ is second nature. It’s the backbone of every successful surgery and the silent promise we make to every patient who enters the operating theatre. It means ensuring a sterile environment, but it also extends to mentoring younger staff, voicing concerns about potential breaches in sterility, and continuously updating one’s knowledge. In my years of experience, I’ve seen the direct impact of maintaining a strong surgical conscience on patient outcomes. As I transition to a new facility, I bring this unwavering commitment, ensuring patient safety is always the top priority.”


Question 2

What do you see as your biggest challenge in undertaking work-integrated study? How will you manage these challenges?

Perspective of Thinking: This question aims to gauge your self-awareness, foresight, and problem-solving skills.

What the Recruitment Team is Looking For: Understanding potential challenges and a proactive approach to managing them.

Approach: Highlight your time management skills, resilience, and adaptability.

Top Candidate Response Examples:

    • Situation: Juggling academic commitments with clinical placements.
    • Task: Balancing responsibilities during nursing studies.
    • Action: Developing a strict study schedule and collaborating with peers.
    • Result: Effective time management strategies for integrating into the workforce.
  • Transitioning Nurse (To Perioperative Program):
    • Situation: Undertaking additional training for a new specialty.
    • Task: Integrating new learning with current work.
    • Action: Setting aside dedicated study hours and seeking mentorship.
    • Result: A smooth transition to the perioperative program with continuous learning.
  • Experienced Nurse (New Role in Different Perioperative Facility):
    • Situation: Transitioning to a leadership role in a previous facility.
    • Task: Balancing OR responsibilities with management courses.
    • Action: Scheduling study hours around operating theatre commitments.
    • Result: Effective management of time and responsibilities in a new facility.

Top Candidate Response Planning and Examples

Nursing Student (New Graduate Interview):

Situation: “During my nursing studies, I juggled academic commitments with part-time work and clinical placements.”

Task: “Balancing these responsibilities was challenging, especially during exam periods or when assignments were due.”

Action: “I developed a strict study schedule, used productivity apps, and often collaborated with peers to ensure I stayed on track.”

Result: “Time management will be crucial as I integrate into the workforce. I plan to use the strategies I’ve developed during my studies to ensure I can balance continuous learning with my responsibilities as a new graduate nurse.”

Nurse (Transitioning to Perioperative Program):

Situation: “Transitioning from one nursing specialty to another has required me to undertake additional training and certifications.”

Task: “While I’m excited about the perioperative program, I anticipate the challenge of integrating new learning with my current work.”

Action: “In the past, I’ve set aside dedicated study hours each week and sought mentorship from experienced colleagues in the new area.”

Result: “I plan to use a similar approach for this transition, ensuring that I can effectively integrate new knowledge into my practice while maintaining the highest standards of patient care.”

Experienced Nurse (New Role in Different Perioperative Facility):

Situation: “When I transitioned to a leadership role in my previous perioperative facility, I had to undertake management courses while still overseeing surgeries.”

Task: “The challenge was to ensure that neither my studies nor my responsibilities in the OR were compromised.”

Action: “I scheduled my study hours around my operating theatre commitments, often studying late at night or on weekends. I also sought feedback regularly to ensure I met both roles’ expectations.”

Result: “As I transition to this new facility, I anticipate similar challenges. However, with my prior experience, I’m confident I can manage my time effectively and ensure continuity in practice and continuous learning.”

Top Candidate Responses

  • Nursing Student (New Graduate Interview): “As a nursing student, the challenge of integrating work with study is a fresh experience. The biggest hurdle I foresee is managing the dual responsibilities of a budding professional role and academic commitments. However, I’ve always believed in proactive planning. I developed a strict study schedule during my studies, collaborated with peers, and sought guidance when needed. Digital tools and calendars have been my allies in ensuring I stay on track. As I step into the workforce, I’m determined to apply these strategies, ensuring I excel in my role and continuous learning journey.”
  • Transitioning Nurse (To Perioperative Program): “Transitioning to a new specialty like the perioperative program means immersing oneself in a new learning curve while managing current work responsibilities. Time management will undoubtedly be a challenge. However, I’ve always approached such challenges with a structured plan. Setting aside dedicated study hours, seeking mentorship, and constantly updating my knowledge have been my go-to strategies. I understand that the recruitment team values continuity in practice and studies. I’m committed to ensuring my smooth transition, with neither my work nor my studies taking a backseat.”
  • Experienced Nurse (New Role in Different Perioperative Facility): “With years of experience, the challenge in undertaking work-integrated study shifts from managing time to ensuring that the learning is integrated seamlessly into practice. While I have a wealth of experience, every new role brings unique demands. Balancing operating theatre responsibilities with the need to stay updated in a new facility will be my primary challenge. However, I’ve always been an advocate for continuous learning. My approach will be scheduling study hours around operating theatre commitments, seeking feedback, and being open to new methodologies. I’m confident that with my dedication and proactive planning, I’ll ensure excellence in my new role and continuous professional development.”


Preparing for an interview involves more than just rehearsing answers. It involves understanding the essence of each question and customising your responses to highlight your skills, experience, and dedication to the nursing profession. Whether you are a beginner or have years of experience, this post aims to provide you with the knowledge and confidence to succeed in your next perioperative nursing interview, particularly when it comes to questions about surgical consciousness and work-integrated study.

Stepping Outside Your Comfort Zone: A Path to Personal Growth

Stepping Outside Your Comfort Zone: A Path to Personal Growth

This blog is the “monthly thought”. A section in the Monthly Dose Newsletter.

You can subscribe to the newsletter here.

As nurses, it’s easy to fall into a routine and stick to what we know. However, growth occurs when we step outside our comfort zone. When we challenge ourselves and take risks, we open ourselves up to new perspectives and experiences that can help us become better healthcare providers.

Stepping outside our comfort zone can be daunting, but the rewards are often well worth the effort. Not only does it broaden our horizons, but it also helps us build resilience and confidence. We learn to embrace change and adapt to new situations, which is an essential personal and professional skill.

So, the next time you feel stagnant or uninspired, consider taking a leap of faith and trying something new. Whether learning a new skill, attending a conference or workshop, or even just introducing yourself to a new colleague, the possibilities are endless when we step outside our comfort zone.

Remember, growth occurs when we challenge ourselves. By taking risks and embracing new opportunities, we can continue improving our practice and providing better patient care.

Redefining Nursing Education: Embracing a Holistic Approach for a Successful Career

The Myth: Nursing School Teaches You Everything

🤔 No, it won’t.

Many believe that university or TAFE-based nursing programs provide all the necessary knowledge and skills for a successful nursing career. This commonly held belief stems from the assumption that formal education is the key to success in any profession. However, this belief has led to underprepared nurses entering the workforce.

Shortcomings in Traditional Nursing Education:

  1. Limited clinical practice in controlled environments
  2. Lack of exposure to different nursing specialties
  3. Insufficient focus on soft skills like communication and empathy

The Flawed Belief in the Traditional Nursing Education Model

Traditional nursing education often falls short because it doesn’t prepare students for the realities of the profession. Real-world experience and adaptability are crucial, yet many programs lack these elements.

Embracing a Holistic Approach: The New Perspective

To shift their mindset from “old” to “new,” nursing students should actively seek hands-on experiences. By engaging in undergraduate, volunteer, or part-time work in healthcare settings, students can gain practical experience and enhance their skills as well as gain confidence.

The Benefits of a Holistic Approach

Compound the experience you gain with additional benefits seeking your own learning goals. By adopting a more comprehensive approach, nursing students can expect improved clinical skills, better communication, and critical thinking abilities. This will better equip them for the challenges and complexities of the nursing profession, leading to a more fulfilling career.

The “Old” Way Is Fading

The “old” way of relying on traditional nursing education is on its way out, as the need for adaptable and well-rounded nurses becomes apparent. A more comprehensive approach, integrating theory, practice, and soft skills, is the future of nursing education, ensuring that students are prepared for the ever-changing healthcare landscape and contribute to improving patient care.

My TOP 15 pieces of advice for new nurses, grads and students!

Advice for all Nurses including grads…

  1. No one expects you know everything! Or anything really.
    • We just want you to be confident, look after you, give 100% and PRACTICE SAFELY. How do you do that? Be guided by your training and who you have become! Take deep breaths, seek support and ask questions (when you need to maintain you and your patients safety).
  2. You have worked so hard!
    • You have completed your degree! All the training, done! Have trust in yourself, the training you have done, and your ability! You’ve got this!
  3. Remember you are a new graduate registered nurse, NEW GRADuate.
    • You are there to work, as an autonomous registered nurse, while you develop your confidence, knowledge, skills and gain experience. You do this with the guidance of your graduate program and support network on your ward.
  4. Look at your learning outcomes and skill objectives, and concentrate on them.
    • You are still and will always be learning! You have graduated as a student and are now an autonomous and a safe practicing registered nurse. Keep developing, learning and growing by increasing your knowledge, improving your skills and developing new skills.
  5. Be you, learn, develop and grow, have fun and seek those clinical and career opportunities!
    • You are amazing! Continue to be you!
    • Enjoy the journey and make the journey yours.
    • Follow what you love and are interested in!
  6. Seek help
    • We are always here to help!
    • Reach out whenever you need. You can use nurses on the floor, mentors, educators and your managers.
  7. Help out
    • Help others where you can, ask questions where you need and practice the skills you are developing. Practice with other nurses on your ward who are competent in the skills, until you are competent and confident with them!
    • Make an effort to integrate with your ward socially to further develop your relationships and support networks with your team.
  8. Find a buddy & mentor
    • Find that one buddy that is a nurse you can hang with, chat with. Maybe you are lucky enough to even work together on the same ward or shifts!
    • You will need a good mentor! Everyone does! Whether it is a family member, friends, another nurse or a paid coach. A mentor who can help guide you, your thoughts, your actions, goals and achievements, as you move forward is so important!
  9. Find a social group
    • These can be so invaluable for supporting each other and sharing resources! I was part of a FB group as a student for each year of my degree and also as a graduate nurse for the graduate program at my hospital. It was awesome to stay in touch and share stories, resources etc with each other. If there isn’t anything like this you can also create it!
  10. You deserve respect
    • You are the newbie on the floor however, people should say hello and not be rude to you, you deserve respect. Be confident and speak out about this behaviour and seek the help of your mentors. You are still learning while working with them as equal Registered Nurses.
  11. The learning journey continues
    • There is always something to learn and something to do! Attend an education session, create some educational content yourself. Practice your skills, chat to other nurses and chat with your patients. There is so much you can learn from someone by having a conversation and listening to them. Whether they are a nurse, relative or patient you will learn something!
  12. Look after yourself!
    • I cannot stress the importance of looking after yourself and your wellbeing! Also knowing yourself and working with your needs. Get the rest you need! Eat healthy food, drink water and get plenty of exercise! I love to do daily exercise as well as my new found love, meditation! I use the headspace app! Check it out!
    • Take your breaks during your shifts. This is a big one, make sure you take your breaks!
  13. Big process and challenge!
    • This will be a massive process, don’t underestimate the journey or the growth and you will adapt – you’ve got this! Nursing is a unique profession and is tough. You chose it for a reason and now you have a challenge. Moving from theoretical learning to stepping into the clinical environment to practice all of those awesome skills is hard.
  14. Reflect!
    • Take time to reflect on your shift, what has happened, how you felt, how you responded and how you acted… what you could have done done and what you could do better next time, by learning from this experience. I highly recommend documenting your journey in an app like DayOne or something. The power behind reflecting in journalling is very powerful 🔥🚀 – give it a go!
  15. Connect with your passion
    • Find the why! WHY did you start nursing? Connect with the deep and meaningful aspects of you! Be intentional with your thoughts, actions and reflections and do what truely matters, changes and develops you!

Some specific advice for students…

We do not expect a thing from you!

Come in and say hey! Get to know us and join in with us caring for our patients. Ask us questions and let’s develop, learn and grow together!

Remember you are a student and you are there to learn!

You are there to develop your knowledge, skills and spend time in the clinical environment doing this under the guidance of experienced nurses. Sometimes they try and get you to ‘work’ but you are a student there to learn!

When on placement, looking at your learning outcomes and skill objectives is a very useful to guide your learning. You have goals to achieve while you are there. Get in and get them done! Plan, do, achieve.

Be you, learn, have fun and seek those clinical opportunities!

Yes, nurses and the environment is a little more stressed at the moment, however you need to learn. Maximise you’re learning opportunities by being confident, asking questions and taking control of your education and progress.

Seek help

If you do not know something, just ask. We are all there to help each other. We will not know if you do not ask.

Help out

Help where you can, ask questions where you need and practice the skills you are developing until you are competent and confident with them.

You deserve respect

You are not there to be a slave, people should say hello and not be rude to you. Be confident and speak out about this behaviour and seek the help of your mentors.

Advice from the ANE Community

Nurse Coach, Leader & Podcaster

  1. Start by getting to know yourself on the deepest level possible, with clarity comes confidence and it will serve your whole career!
  2. Be kind to yourself, the goal is never to know it all, it’s to get 1% better each day- you are doing awesome. Be a curious learner and be prepared to be wrong!
  3. Be careful who you listen to and turn to for advice in your career. Seek those who have done what you want to do and ask them all the questions!
  4. Finally, find a coach outside of your workplace to help empower you, gain clarity and help you overcome the inner critic! No one will ever provide that support in the workplace- they simply don’t know how!


Sample, sample, sample – create your own path!


Growth lies at the other side of your comfort zone! Go get it!

Podcaster & Recently graduated New Grad – heading into transition year 2!

You need to utilise the educators and other nurses and ask them questions, ask for help and debrief. I think we also need to acknowledge that the media is hyping up this code brown, the code brown does not necessarily mean you’re going to get less support and you’re going to struggle as a new nurse.

I know that many people have anxiety regarding that but I think we need to remember that the hospital you’re doing your grad year still has that duty to provide a supportive environment and it may be different to usual programs, but you are not alone and no one expects you to know everything! Other nurses, especially grads (because they know how you are feeling), are the best people to debrief with. Unfortunately people not in the medical profession, just don’t understand and will not be able to offer you the debrief you truely need. So make a group chat with other grads and chat away!!

From the Aussie Nurse Educator

Nurse Mil also just completed her new graduate program!

Mil has been guiding and supporting junior nurses throughout her experience and with her podcast.

Mil also wrote a recent post on instagram that every graduate nurse needs to read!

Cardiac CNS, Mentor and Manager + Business Owner (all things cardiac nursing!)

Don’t expect to know everything in the first week – give yourself time and be kind to yourself.

You will learn something new every single shift, experienced nurses still do also, so don’t think of this as a negative or reflection on you!

Remember that I started at the same place, so don’t put so much pressure on yourself. Your grad year is there for a reason, it’s a year where you are supported because being a brand-new registered nurse is challenging and there are things you won’t know, and things you wouldn’t have seen before.

Basically, just go easy on yourself and do your best!

Deanne – The Balanced Nurse Au – Website + Instagram + Facebook

Nurse Coach and Mentor

My best advice is always about keeping balance.

It can be tempting to fall into the culture and habits nursing has in places that aren’t balanced or healthy. Learn good habits early like bringing nutritious food, staying hydrated and taking breaks. And don’t feel pressured to say yes to more shifts or over time – “no” is a complete sentence. I have lots more but these things I think are key 😊

Beth – Autonomic Nurse – Website + Instagram

Nurse Mentor

Always remember to make your life off shift a priority. It will be tempting to immerse yourself in your new career, but this is short term thinking. Focus on setting up sustainable habits if you want to remain free of burnout. This means not picking up extra shifts, making time for leisure, meal prep and seeing non nursing friends. Also work on increasing your non clinical skills (ie your personal development like communication and mindset).

The clinical skills will come with your work on the ward but the non clinical stuff you will need to work on yourself.

Find a mentor!

Xana – Nourished Nurse – Website + Instagram + Podcast

Nurse, Podcaster & Traveller!

Becoming a new nurse can be a roller coaster.

It is important to remember that nursing is a 24/7 job and you can’t do it all, and that’s okay.

If you put your best foot forward everyday and do your best that is all you can ask of yourself.

Ask for help.

Reach out to your colleagues if you’re struggling, I promise that your team will appreciate you saying something rather than nothing at all.

Make sure you establish some balance in your life. Don’t live to work but work to live and enjoy life outside of work. It is easy to get caught up in working long hours in nursing but burnout happens real quick so be good to yourself. Look after yourself on your days off and plan things you love to do, or just sit and watch Netflix! Never feel guilty for prioritising yourself.

Chat to other nurses, chat to us! There are so many people out there who have been through exactly what you’re going through and we may look like we got it all together but we don’t.

We’ve all been on this journey so never hesitate to reach out for help. There is strength in numbers. AND HAVE FUN! Nursing is such an awesome career and helping change lives is beyond incredible.

Enjoy it. Savour the moments 💗

Cynarra – HealthInsightHQ – Website + Instagram

Nurse Facilitator & Mentor

Remember it’s ok not to have everything worked out at the start.

If you haven’t picked a speciality, if you don’t feel confident or feel that you don’t know everything medically on shift. I think we have all felt like that.

It’s important to ask for help and talk to other nurses to debrief.

Give yourselves some credit and remember what you have already achieved!

Also know that you can leave a workplace and find a new job if you aren’t happy. There were times where I felt I had to stay at workplace, or felt I wasn’t experienced enough to apply to jobs. But your own happiness is important! Apply for a job you want, don’t stay in a toxic environment. Put yourself first!

Enjoy the journey!

Lauren – Nurse Coach & RN – Instagram

Don’t ever be afraid to ask questions or the opinion of another RN. Many new nurses worry that asking a question will make them look stupid, unprofessional, like an imposter… And yet even after 30+ years I still confer with another RN for their opinion at times. I never think poorly of someone asking a question/opinion. It shows courage and confidence and I worry about the ones that never ask questions. This is all about knowing and owning your value no matter where you are on your nursing journey.
