I received my request for interview.

  1. I've applied for CRNA school for Spring 2013 and have met all of the requirements for admission. I received a request for the interview process for September. Any pointers on how to prepare and what to expect?

    Each school is different. Some ask lots of clinical questions and some ask mostly get to know you type questions. The best thing to do is use the search engine on this site to look up your school. What school did you get an interview invite from? Maybe if you post it on here someone who has interviewed there will respond.

    In general, CCRN stuff is always good to brush up on for clinical questions. Also, practice some of the basic questions like "why do you want to be a CRNA" because you may know what you want to say, but your nerves may prevent it from coming out the way you mean for it to.

    First of all congratulations in making it in. Few questions that you should know the answers to would be
    1) what kind of preparation did you do to succeed in the CRNA program?
    2) Why CRNA and not any other Nursing specialization?
    3) How are you going to be beneficial to community after you done with CRNA program?

    Hope this helps.Let me know how your interview goes

    Best of luck!

    There is a really excellent site on another online pre-CRNA forum that has a fairly comprehensive PDF of popular questions one can download to help prepare for the interview. Honestly, a few of them I had actually not thought about. May I ask, where are you interviewing?

    Good luck!

    Congratulations on your interview request! I also received an interview request and am looking for insight. I've talked to anesthetists at my facility who have emphasized to "know your vasoactive drugs."

    Hi there, I am not even anywhere near to the application process, but may I ask what website with PDF form did you just mention?
