What's the LOL about that? It's the doctoral study of nurse anesthesia. The difference is that DOctoral study in nursing practice can also be applied to FNP. Hopefully, you are aware of the difference.

Finally finished my application today (waiting very nervously for one last letter of rec). Really hoping I can get a chance to interview here. I know how great a program it is. I wonder if the DNP change will affect the number of applicants.

I would put the most energy into your statement rather than stats and those of others. I'm currently in the program, and most applicants are identical. Your statement is Your time to shine and explain why you would make a great CRNA.

I'm just finishing my first semester and it's a great program, those graduating with a DNP will be very competitive applicants when it comes to jobs!

I have a few old colleagues from my hospital that are in your program currently. I was told that the personal statement did not have that great of an impact. Now I'm concerned I won't even get an interview.

5 years RN experience, 3 CTICU/CCU, 2 PACU/OR

3.98 BSN GPA

Bilingual (Spanish)

Involved in many committees

Volunteer at free healthcare clinic

My stats now seem not that great.
