    Oadewoye - Would you recommend a upper level biochem class prior to the start of the program (already accepted) or a waste of money/time?
    To the others that I said to PM me apparently I'm too new to this site to receive messages

    Hi!

    I have an interview coming up soon and I just wanted to see if anyone would be willing to give me some tips? Carni, I noticed that you said you cannot receive PMs... I'm new on here so I doubt I can even send them. Is there an area that I should focus on as far as studying for clinical questions? From what I've gathered, right now I plan on knowing vent settings in and out as well as ABG interpretation, and some pharmacology. I was planning on focusing my pharm on pressors, propofol, and precedex. I am someone who is very good at taking tests on paper but sometimes I blank out with oral examinations so I'm understandably nervous about being underprepared. Otherwise, I interview pretty well from what I can tell from my history as far as job interviews are concerned. This is my first CRNA program interview

    TBH my interview was similar to this post CRNA Midwestern application 2016. Pretty sure I got the same interviewers. They wanted to know everything down to the receptor level. I'd also study code drugs (I was asked about atropine). I've also heard them asking simple medical calculations, like how many mcg in a mg, or concentration of propofol, but I didn't get any of that.

    Are those that are applying right now or being interviewed right now applying for a 2019 or 2018 start? I'm assuming they start in the fall? Thanks in advance

    I interviewed on July 12 and received a call an hour later that I got accepted. I am very excited but also nervous. Is there a facebook page where all students starting June 2018 can communicate before the start of classes?
    My interview was pretty much similar to those who posted earlier. I was asked about Atropine, how it works. I was asked to describe the autonomic nervous system and all the receptors involved in both the PNS and SNS. I was also asked about preload and afterload. Then they asked some ethical questions . Goodluck to those who will be interviewing soon. Just be yourself and with some basic critical care knowledge , you should be fine.
    Anyone knows someone who graduated from the program? I'm curious of how often will we be travelling for rotations and how many different States would they send us to?
