I applied for a job within my unit that I do not qualify for. Now, I have an interview for this job. Me knowing I do not meet most of the qualifications for this position has my imposter syndrome thinking I shouldn’t even do this interview because it would be a waste of time. Has anyone felt this way?

Totally! It’s a great sign you got the interview - go through with it! Try and focus your interview question responses on how you will work to learn/close knowledge gaps or how you have problem-solved in the past to accomplish a task you had no experience with in a prior role. Good luck!

If you didn't lie on your resume than they know what skills you have and how qualified you are. Worst they can say is no, and then you can ask for feedback and see what you can do to get there.

Give it a try. The recruiter will still consider other factors. The important thing is that everything stated in your resume is true. Best of luck!

I appreciate everyone’s response so much! It has helped me be a little more confident looking into this interview. Even if I don’t get the position I can always look for it in the future or in other hospitals :) thank you everyone! Interview is this Wednesday, I’m pretty excited now.
