I had my interview at University of Michigan Flint this week. When I arrived they had me take a multiple choice test approx 30- 40 questions. Some questions were Which drug to use or not use in certain situation, 5 ABG interpretations, normal values of cvp, pa, pawp, ra and waveforms that correlate ( the values were fill in the blank). 2 short answer questions involving increased icp and tx; and a short essay about what 3 main issues students face and what had I done to prepare for them. After this I had a panel interview, asking the typical Why CRNA, why U of M, what are my plans if I dont get in, my strengths and weaknesses. There was also time in OR where you sit in on a case for 20-30 minutes and a CRNA asks you some questions and evaluate your responses. They write them down and tell their impression on a scale of 1-10 if they think you should be invited to be a student. I felt pretty relaxed. It was nowhere near as nerve racking as I thought. From what I have heard students usually find out in about 7 to 10 by phone call from the program directer if they have been accepted. I learned you must send in $1000 with letter of acceptance to hold your position. I also learned they usually admit 16-19 students depending on the current pool of applicants.
Now the nerve racking wait period begins. God bless to all and let me know if you have questions.
