Riley,

I did have my interview, and it wen't pretty much like I had expected. It was a lot of "get to know you" type of conversation. I felt great after leaving, but as time has past, I just don't know. It's hard to tell what they're really looking for. I met with two of the three program directors, and both of them were very nice and pleasant to talk to. It lasted about 40min with the first interviewer, and about 20-25min with the other director. I would say that it went as well as I could of expected. I wish you the best of luck, and let me know how your'e interview goes.

Sean

When I got there, the secretary took me to the library where I had my interview, and I was not shown the facility. However, when I turned in my application in back in June I was given a tour, but it's not that much of one. There are two classrooms that the program uses, a library, and a small cafeteria, that's it. It's in a community center located on the second floor. I know exactly how you feel, about being nervous, but just be yourself, and you should do fine, but like I said earlier, and especially now after my interview, I have no idea what they're looking for. Good luck to you!

Just finished my interview. Felt pretty nervous during the first interview, and felt I could have definitely done a better job articulating my thoughts...Second interview was with one of the instructors, and I felt that interview went perfectly. I'm a harsh critic of myself, so its hard to really say how I did..lol. Hopefully we all get good news.

Well I interveiwed there last year so they new me pretty well. I did meet with one of the two directors that I met with last year and then there was the Director who I did not meet last year that I met this year. They just kind of wanted to know what I all did in the last year and what leadership roles I took, which by the way, I had a lot. They also wanted me to take another chem class last year and I did and they were very happy with my solid A I received. Other than that we just kind of sat back and talked and I felt like I rocked it. They asked me questions I gave answers with personal experiance and I asked good questions in return. I will just have to wait until end of next month to find out. I have my fingers crossed!!!!!

You guys lucked out. My interview was December 13 the time the blizzard went through. My flight was canceled on Saturday so went on Sunday. I interviewed with only the director because the other interviewer was out of town. It was short maybe 40-45 and tell me about yourself and why you want to be a CRNA. I have 8.5 years of ICU experience in moderate to high acuity settings. My overall GPA is around 3.4 and sciences around 3.1 but I have retaken Chem and got an A as well as Human Physiology also an A. Wish everyone good luck and January 11 is the day I was told they will meet and decide. Hopefully we will be classmates in a few months!
