ABSTRACT
The article provides tips to professionals for media interviews. Talking to a journalist may seem terrifying, but preparation and simple strategies may help. Media interviews, whether with trade or national press, radio or television are daunting for most nurses, even those who have received some training in this area. Being prepared will enable one to appear relaxed. Interviews for newspapers, magazines and web sites may be conducted by phone with the journalist recording the conversation, or taking shorthand notes.
