I submitted it Oct 5 and it was verified by Nursing CAS about a week later.

@Asherah did you schedule your interview ? Or if you already interviewed, did you hear from them ?

I have an interview scheduled next week, however, no idea when they will announce any admissions decisions.  Will likely ask during the interview and happy to share if they decide to tell me.

I commented previously regarding my experience with Johns Hopkins School of Nursing and the complete lack of organization and support from professors. Another thing I'd like to add, considering some of you are going in for interviews:

Important things to ask THEM in the interview would be:

- What are your clinical sites? In a large metropolitan area, at which sites and how much will I be competing with anesthesiology residents for cases?

- Ask the professors who THEY know in the field. Nurse anesthesia is a very small community and it really is all about who you know.

- As a brand new program, what will you do to ensure I meet my required number of procedures to graduate?

- Will you subsidize any trips to conferences?

- What will you incorporate into your program to ensure I'm prepared for boards when I graduate?

- Why should I pay more than any other school to attend your brand new, untested nurse anesthesia program?

Lastly, I would look up Nurse Anesthesia Doctorate Program accreditation requirements. Pick out a few things you feel are most important to you and ask them how they will be compliant with that specific requirement. My school was just up for re-accreditation, and the accreditors hold a meeting during which they address literally every topic and sub-topic.

@gnolema5011 Thank you for you insights, truly.  Your questions are spot on and many of which I was planning to ask myself based on researching what truly provides value in established anesthesia programs...broad clinical experiences and faculty/cohort support.  I also am a Hopkins alumna, however I graduated ten years ago when the second degree BSN program was well established.  I did not have any qualms with the administration/faculty then, but also recognize that I have been away from the SON for a decade.  

I also have my reservations in terms of ensuring the success of SRNAs when starting a new program, and very much aware that there is a quality education out there for me for about half the cost of Hopkins.  I’m waiting to hear about admissions offers in the coming weeks, so we’ll see.  For those reasons, Hopkins is not my first choice, however I felt that it was appropriate to apply and see how things shake out.  

Your input is valued as a current SRNA, thank you for offering it! 🙂

I interviewed yesterday as well.  I'm definitely happy to support anyone who is going for interviews for any CRNA program, however, I still believe you have to prepare on your own.  Perhaps my point of view is unpopular, but it's part of the process and it demonstrates that you are motivated.  We all have done our own work to get here and earn our place in a cohort.  Be ready for any clinical or behavior questions for any interview you are prepping for.  Good luck to everyone!

I agree you have to be prepared for a variety of questions because the interview is based on your experience and specialty. Just be yourself!!

@Asherah Did they mention how many applicants will be selected?

The website says up to 25 but I forgot to ask that during the interview.

@nurselati I did not ask specifically because in the webinar they hosted a month or so ago they indicated 10-15 students in the first cohort.  Another SRNA chimed in here on a thread indicating that programs with pending accreditation are required to take a smaller first cohort.  I'm not sure how much of that is fact or just hearsay.
