I am currently in the application/interview process with a school. Provided I get in, is there any suggested reading outside of a CCRN manual that someone can suggest to help me prep for the content in a CRNA program. I want to refresh and make sure that I have a firm foundation. I have plenty of experience, but as you all know, what your hospital does vs what the book suggests can be very different depending on where you work and practice. So while my clinical knowlege is strong, I want to make sure that my book knowlege is also.

Every student I’ve spoken with has told me to relax and not to worry about doing any academic preparation for school. You will learn all that you need to know during the program. 
 

If you are worried about it, it wouldn’t hurt to review CCRN material and go to ICUFAQs.org And go over all the basic ICU nurse material to refresh yourself.

Barry University offers a great online 3 credit review of the fundamentals and intro to the concepts used in practice, called Transition to Nurse Anesthesiology (ANE 695).  It is not designed to be a difficult course, and is as beneficial as you make it.  As I said the modules are available online.  I will share some of the materials with you if you want to share your proof of acceptance with me.  If you have not yet been accepted to a program and need to strengthen your application, and can afford the course,  I think it made my interviews go easier to speak with enthusiasm about a graduate level science course that is specifically targeted towards hopeful SRNAs.

Wow, that prep course is $3k! 😮

Yes a drop in the bucket relative to most CRNA programs. Are you prospective or accepted?

Feel free to email me questions
