When I was looking for a CRNA school, I found this school, but realized that allnurses.com did not have much in this program. I wanted to start this forum to bring to light some things that I found out about the school. 

Location: Springfield, MO

Program length: 36 months. Doctorate. 

Interview: Suit up. You're welcome. Panel Interviews. All day affair. Really nice, but questions may seem a little intense. May have been my nerves talking here. 

How quickly to hear back? Depends between 2 weeks to a couple of months depending on where you rank. 

Any questions welcome. I got in and I am super excited for starting as this was my first choice. 

Good luck to you all on your journey!

Hey Mercymercy!

I plan on applying for the Summer 2020 class. 

I did have a few questions if you don't mind answering!

- How many students interviewed/got accepted?

- What were the questions in the interview like (i.e. clinical based or personality based)?

- What were your stats going into the program?

- How often do you rotate clinical sites/how many clinical sites are available?

- How are clinical sites selected?

Sorry for all of the questions, just really excited to apply!

1. They had an intended number of about 40 students to interview, but some ended up dropping due to other admissions, so that number went down a bit. They were only interested in accepting 20 students but looks like it's a total of about 24 for the class. Mind you, they had over 100 applicants. 

2. Questions were more personality based/ethically based. I did not get any clinical questions in mine, not sure about others though. It doesn't hurt to chip a few things in clinically though. 

3. My stats, little over a year at the time of application deadline in ICU, but had 2.5 yrs Trauma ER prior to moving back to ICU. CCRN. 3.5 GPA undergrad. 302 GRE, 149 reading 153 math, 4.0 writing. was becoming an instructor for ACLS, taught CCRN review course, part of committees, charge nurse, etc. They really like at least 2 yrs before you start. Had another girl that had 2 years and all the interviewers kept asking how she'd cope with only 2 years experience in ICU. 

4/5. Haven't started clinicals, but they say that you get to go to at least 4 sites, and 1 will be in a rotation with a CRNA independent site so you get the exposure. They assign you sites to go to, not much of a choice, just based on the algorithm you place into randomly. Clinicals can be as short as 3 months up to 6 months, depending on your site.
