As I sat on the couch reading a rejection letter last week I took a moment to reflect on how a small peice of white paper can have the power to completely shatter my ego, confidence, and even has the power to make me question... Read More

    Hi everyone,

    I too am considering become a CRNA but first must get ICU experience and CCRN certification. I just completed my RN/BSN and got a job at a Cardiac Surgery PCU.

    Would any of you that had interviews at CRNA schools please share some questions that were asked in the interview?

    Many thanks!

    Holly please search here and on google for possible questions. They are r endless. I search and made myself a huge list to review and study. But really they could ask anything. Different schools ask different things, some more clinical, some more personal.

    Good luck

    Yeah, you could spend forever looking up questions they may ask. Make your life easier and talk with a current student or someone who interviewed at the school and find out what they were asked. I did and I was 100% prepared for my interview; nothing they threw at me was completely out of left field because I went in with a good idea of the focus of the interview.

    Don't give up, ask the program why you weren't an attractive candidate. I got in the first school I interviewed at that I didnt' really care going to. My second interview at the school I really was dying to go to for years rejected me completely and I cried for 2 days. Rejection is so hard, but at the end of the day I will be a CRNA in 2.5 years and where I went to school wont matter. I'm actually going to a higher rated program and cheaper so I don't know why I got my heart broken over it?

    Thank you to everyone here who responded. You all offered some great advice. I've reached out to programs and department heads who have been very helpful. I've been focusing on turning my weaknesses into strengths for this application cycle. Here's to hoping this year yields a coveted acceptance letter!
