Pima Medical Institute
Nursing Instructor was asked...26 June 2017

What hospital do you work at? I am an NP do not work in a hospital. Want clinical instructors only but did not make this clear when they called for an interview. Big waste of everyone's time. How would you teach conceptual nursing?

We are so sorry that your experience with Pima Medical Institute was less than desirable. Our mission is to improve the quality of people’s lives by providing the best value in medical career education. Part of what is behind “providing the best value in medical career education” is selecting only the highest quality instructors to teach our students in their various programs. As you know from participating in the interview process, we are looking for instructors who have a vast array of knowledge of their chosen profession and if selected for a second interview to be able to provide a short demonstration of their teaching ability. This is not an easy process for either the interviewer or interviewee and we apologize if during the progression of the interview things became uncomfortable. That, we assure you, is not our intention as the last thing we want is for someone to leave the interview with a negative impression of our instructors and our college. We do hope you accept our explanation and understand that what you experienced is the exception rather than the rule. Less
