admission into CRNA School

  1. Hi I am currently a nursing student in NYC and I am scheduled to receive my BSN in Nursing June 2004. I am extremely interested in becoming a CRNA. I just wanted to ask some questions to people who have been accepted into any programs and what their status was pertaining to clinical experience, gpa, etc. Also how their interviews went and how long it took them to actually be accepted into their program of choice. I would really appreciate any comments or suggestions. Thank You and I hope to hear from anyone.

    Hello, two things I would immediately suggest to you, please read the FAQ, and do some background reading. There are many threads covering those exact topics.

    Like you suggested I went to search past threads and none contained anything specific. Any way I was just wondering if there was a website where I could look up statistics of students accepted into Crna schools and their situations. Thank You Anyway.

    Read the thread "Becoming a CRNA--From one who did it" Has some great info and read the FAQ sticky at the top of the forum. As far as stats of students you should call the schools that you are interested in. They can tell you what you want to know.

    Unfortunately, the schools do not give out information like that, except when you call them. Some will not give it out even then.

    see these threads.

    The first one is my interview thread, the others are similar threads.

    this one is about time in the icu for experience.

    Texas Wesleyan University posts their national certification pass rates on the website. 98% first time exam takers, 100% pass rate on all nurse anesthesia residents who have completed the program since 1982.
