The effectiveness of traditional interviews in assessing candidates’ suitability for nursing has been called into question (Perkins et al, 2013; Rodgers et al, 2013). There is also a risk of interview bias or chance (Eva et al, 2009). The use of the multiple mini interview (MMI) to select candidates was pioneered in Canada; it is now used in many parts of the world. Several studies have evaluated the MMI’s feasibility, validity and effectiveness in determining the suitability of applicants and their subsequent clinical performance (Dowell et al, 2012; Eva et al, 2009; 2004; Reiter et al, 2007). Its success as an indicator of the professionalism and communication skills of candidates and its cost-effectiveness in terms of interview time have also been studied (Eva et al, 2009; Rosenfeld et al, 2008).
