OHSU CRNA 2018

  1. Hi everyone!

    Wanted to get this topic started since I cannot find much recent information for this program on this site. Starting my application process for OHSU CRNA for 2018 start year. Wanted to know if there was anyone else out there applying for this program and if you had any advice or information to give on what they are looking for or their interview process?

    Thanks!!

    Hi, im applying to OHSU as well. Im trying to get a read on the stats of applicants that they take. I called them and last year they said they got 100 applicants and took only 9

    Without the GRE required, it looks like they only look at resume, essay, letters of rec, and gpa in the decision.

    Only 9!! I am almost done with my app, but I'm pretty sure now it was just to apply haha. Didn't know how small the cohort was. I know atleast 9 people will surpass me in my stats. Thanks for the update!!

    Don't count yourself out just yet. If those 9 people with better stats don't interview better than you, they probably won't pick them over you. stats aren't everything, just a piece of the picture.

    In the hunt for a position as well. Finishing up my app. All the best with the WestCoast programs desert.

    Also, don't forget lots of applicants have multiple apps going so you can still get vacated spots.

    OHSU SRNA's are usually in their late 20's, early 30's, meaningful CC experience or very extensive emergency experience and have have significant or meaningful life experience (military, overseas missionary work etc...) those that do not have this kind of background are apparent. This in addition to academic excellence.

    IOW, probably decent medical school candidates were they to take MCAT and pre-reqs, with the occasional exceptions.

    Applying here this year as well. I'm in the NW so this is by far my #1A choice in programs. I know my wife is ready to bribe the admission committee with our firstborn to get me in here so we don't have to uproot.

    I spoke with the program director and she said they look for the same thing every school does as far as ideal applicants; 4-5 years high acuity ICU experience, high science GPA, high nursing GPA, CCRN, ACLS, PALS, preceptoring, committees, rapid response, charge, aced interview, etc. Nothing special.

    I'm applying as well! OHSU is definitely my first choice, I'm from Boise and the closer the better. NursingCas makes me nervous, when exactly do they process everything and how long does it take? Best of luck to everyone!
