CRNA School and Family

  1. 0
    I have applied to several CRNA Schools and want to know what to expect as far as time left for family. What is a week like for the SRNA? Will my wife be a single parent while I'm in school? Will I be able to attend any swim meets or concerts for my daughters (ages 7 & 9)? My wife is committed to helping me acheive my goal, but I want my family to be prepared should I get accepted into a program. Can anyone who has been there give me any advice? Thanks.

    I am in my first year, and I'll be honest......it's exhausting. Partying utilizes less energy! But remember, you can make anything happen, especially with a supportive wife. I attend classes 4 days a week, 12 hours total. But....I am reading all the time. I spend at least 16+ hours studying.

    It is very important that you don't bury yourself in studies. My program encourages time for yourself, whether it be with friends, family, significant other, etc. It keeps you sane. Life doesn't end, but it sure changes alot. Go for it!! It'll be worth the hard work you put into it!

    Where are you enrolled? I am interviewing with Texas Wesleyan next month. Would love some interview tips. I have three kids also, so the family time thing is an issue for me as well. If accepted at TWU, I'll have to spend the entire first semester out of state. EEK.
