Has anyone applied to Cedar Crest College’s CRNA program for the class matriculating in 2021? Completed my application and anxiously awaiting any response from them. 🤞🏻

I’m surprised there’s not more chatter about this program on any forums. It’s hard to find any info on them beside the actual cedar crest website.

Likely because it’s still fairly a new program. Many people from Pennsylvania still don’t even know about it. Next year will be their first graduating class.

Talk about stressful! 😱😱

You interviewed online? 🤔🤔 Very interesting.
I thought interviews weren’t until the Fall.

@ICU-NP .. I think it is very strange that somebody with your background, from what it says, has not received an interview?
and interviews online... in June?

LOL, you never know what they’re looking for. However, I will say I’m not surprised by the interview time frame though. Initially, when the application deadline was May 1st I believe they had interview dates already listed on the website and they were only a few short days after that.

That’s very true. & I didn’t know they were doing them so soon.
Will we receive rejection letters in the mail if they don’t choose to interview us?

IcuRN., BSN, EMT-B

Yeah, I do believe they were doing interviews in May or June prior to them extending the deadline if I remember correctly. I still haven’t heard anything either. From the video information session they get about 90 applicants for 10 spots. I would imagine they would interview at least double the number of spots...?

I haven’t the clue...Keep holding out hope. Maybe we’ll still hear something.

Oh WOW!, in my video session they never told us the number of applicants received? That’s quite a lot. Also I’ve heard that some of the slots were already spoken for even before the application deadline.

Not sure about the number of applicants received but I think 23 people interviewed the same week as me because afterwards we all met at the meet and greet. I also applied last year too but didn't get an interview.

Well that sounds pretty final, LOL!

Does anyone know what questions they ask in the interview?

PRN Diem

Mostly personal questions like why should we choose you? Do you have financial support? Etc. when is your interview?

I haven’t gotten one yet but I’ve just been trying to prepare for if and when I’m offered one. Did they ask any super hard clinical questions?
