In this assessment task, you will be participating in an interview for a graduate position. To undertake this task, you will need to draw on the content from module one and two.
You will respond to two questions;
- Your first question will relate to an NSQHS (The National Safety and Quality Health Service) standard. The specific standard will be randomly allocated to you via MyLO email, for example:
“Please explain to the panel members your understanding of this NSQHS standard and discuss with reference to your experiences in Professional Experience Placement, providing justification.”
- Your second question will pose a short clinical scenario based on a conflict situation (which will be randomly allocated to you via MyLO email) and ask:
“In this situation could you please describe your actions, and in addition outline self-care strategies at a stressful time.”
Using a multimedia platform (video), you will be required to respond to the above questions and upload your video to the MyLO submission folder (dropbox).

Do I need to also submit a written component (for example a script)?
No, you only need to submit your video.
Do I need to provide verbal references as I respond to the questions?
No, you do not need to provide references for this assessment task.
There are two questions, do you want two separate videos or one?
One video please, not two.
I haven’t made a video before, and I am a little worried.
We are not expecting a feature film production of Academy Award standard, there is no criterion for video production. Having said that, we do need to be able to see you and hear you clearly please.
Do I need to repeat the question at the start of my video?
No, please do not repeat the question, it will waste valuable time.
Can my video be longer than 10 minutes?
Your video can be plus or minus 10% – therefore we will stop watching your video at the 11 minute mark. Consider your timing carefully in this task.
I am an enrolled nurse and am yet to undertake a Professional Experience Placement in the BN, can I use my experiences as an EN for question 1?
Yes, this is completely acceptable.
Do I need to use the STAR principles for both questions?
Yes, in the first question you should provide an example related to the NSQHS standard you have been allocated. In the second question you should frame your response to the conflict incident in the STAR format.
What do you mean by personal presentation in the rubric?
We expect you to present as you would for an interview. Would you attend an interview in your gym gear or wearing a beanie? No, so we expect you to present yourself in a professional manner, as you would for an interview.
Do I need to wear my PEP uniform?
No. You should present yourself as you would for an interview.
