I was just curious on what types of questions i should be prepared for in an admission interview for anesthesia school. specific questions both clinical and personal would be appreciated. Thanks!
The general stuff like why do you want to be a CRNA?
Strengths and weakensses?
CCRN type stuff
Relationships with MD's and what is going on now with MD's and AA's
Hope this helps...I am sure others can remember more than me!
Don't remember EVER being asked why I wanted to be a CRNA...just a lot of stuff that comes from practice...would HIGHLY recommend getting your CCRN. Be familiar with preload, afterload, ect, drugs, abg's, acls stuff, and above all DONOT b.s them at all! if you do not know just say it! They want someone who is truthful...If you need a minute to think on the question just say it! On a personal level, do not go in dehydrated! nothing is worse than watching them drink soda and being so thirsty you sit there smacking your lips!
apaisRN, RN, CRNA
On the other hand, do not go in overhydrated! I can just see myself crossing my legs and trying to ignore my bladder as I struggle to concentrate on ABG values. Of course, it might take my mind off being nervous . . .
I was asked to share a patient care experience where something went wrong and describe the decision making process used to manage the problem. Everything else they asked was pretty standard: why anesthesia? etc...
