Got Interviews at TCU and Wesleyan

  1. I got interviews for both TCU and Wesleyan. I'm pretty excited but not really sure what to expect. I've brushed up on my clinical knowledge. Has any one else secured interviews? And if so, any idea on what to expect from the inteview. I heard that Wesylan is a great school and TCU will be equally great but a new program. Thanks.

    I interviewed at TWU in December. The interview was 1 hour of clinical questions. You need to know your ABG's, vent settings and vasoactive gtts. Unless you are accepted at another school and ask for an early decision you will know nothing until May.
    I have an interview with TCU on Febuary 10th. This will be their first year having a class which you are probably aware of. I have not spoke or heard from anyone who has allready interviewed. I would really be interested in hearing of the experiences of other applicants also. Good luck with your interviews and keep us posted.

    All I have to say!!! What is the purpose behind an hour of clinical questions? Are they trying out a new version of an oral CCRN exam? ;} Sorry about the sarcasm, but an hour of clinical questions seems pretty ridiculous to me. I can understand a few questions to see how far of a hole a candidate will put themselves into regarding ICU related knowledge, but an hour puts it at the extreme end of the BS spectrum!

    Anyhow, glad to hear you made it through and good luck to you both!!

    I too applied to TWU. They told me over the phone a little over a week ago that everything on my app was in order and that they would be sending me out a letter inviting me for an interview. When did you get your's Solo? I know it hasn't even been 2 weeks but I'm feeling a little anxious. By the way....I find out monday if I got accepted to my top choice
