University of Cincinnati College of Nursing

Help Us Find Our Future Nurse Leaders

Participate in our Multiple Mini Interview Process

The success of the University of Cincinnati's baccalaureate in nursing program — the oldest in the country — depends on our ability to recruit the most capable candidates with the ability to perform academically and the acumen required to navigate the challenges encountered on the way to becoming a successful nurse leader.

In the fall of 2017, the College of Nursing will start assessing candidates using Multiple Mini Interviews (MMI) — a research-based interviewing process that identifies non-cognitive indicators linked to specific desired attributes — as part of the admission process.

We are looking for participants from the university and local community to help interview students.

Who Can Participate?

Anyone! In fact, we're looking for a broad representation of the community to participate in the MMI process. No prior experience or skills in interviewing, nursing, or health care are necessary. This experience provides an opportunity for interviewees and raters, alike, to grow personally and professionally.

How Does it Work?

You will attend a required 90-minute training session (offered online or in person at various time throughout the day). On the day of the MMI, each circuit will last about one hour and you will participate in 1 to 4 circuits. You will evaluate for the same attribute in six to 10 candidates in each circuit.

When are the MMI?

All interviews are pre-scheduled and will take place on Fridays and Saturdays in November, December and January. Friday interviews will run from 1 to 6 p.m. and Saturday interviews will run in two sessions from 8 a.m. to 1 p.m. and 1 p.m. to 6 p.m. (You can elect to participate in one or two of the Saturday sessions.)

Scheduled dates include:

  • Nov. 3-4
  • Nov. 17-18
  • Dec. 1-2
  • Dec. 15-16
  • Jan. 12-13
