  1. Doctorate for Entry into Nurse Anesthesia by 2025

    :) I will be sure to tell him he was dead wrong. He is our director as well as my instructor for professional aspects. He presented the info and stated he felt it was a terrible idea. Is it written in stone? Of course not. Anything can happen b/w now...
  2. Doctorate for Entry into Nurse Anesthesia by 2025

    Funny this should get brought up. I am studying for my first "Professional Aspects" test now. Gotta love all those dates, as if I dont have enough else to study already. DNP's for CRNA's according to my lecture notes will be in place by 2015 as manda...
  3. CRNA Questions

    UAB takes either or and Erlanger in Chattanooga takes just the MAT. I took the MAT. My mind was just geared towards the way it was testing and I knew I could do well on it. I did, I'm in I recommend the MAT. Downside is, many places DO want a GRE sc...
  4. Samford Info

    A buddy of mine just started Samford this past June. First semester under his belt, he is very much enjoying being at Samford. When he interviewed, it was with four different individuals. He met each one seperately in their offices and they did ask h...
  5. CRNA class size?

    I'll be at UAB in a week and half. My class has 63 (thats how many email addresses I counted on a emai to "all"). I was told UAB takes up to 75, but we have 63 for sure in my class.
  6. Who's going to Anesthesia school?

    Uabrn06, sent you a PM. Kimberly Congrats on getting in! I start UAB in 10 days. The pucker factor is high but I'm excited.
  7. CRNA/SRNA Studying Techniques?

    What he said. Thats pretty much how I have studied for the last 100 years and it works well for me. The knowledge stays with you forever like that. Strangely enough by the end of a semester, I could hand someone my notebooks and read off an entire 5...
  8. Expelled from Anesthesia School for Adultery?

    LOL I was just thinking the same thing! I am married and starting a CRNA program this fall........I thought I'd be going months at a time without any sex......There is hope! WOOHOOOO. :trout:
  9. Who's going to Anesthesia school?

    Yea, I am. I have two, but they are older. My son is 16 and my daugher will be 14 when I start. I'm very involved with both of my kids and what they do. However, come Aug 22, I will be MIA for 27 months at the UAB program. I graduate Dec 09 and my so...
  10. Future CRNA income

    That is true but you are talking local. On a national level the shortage will be felt. Here at home, we have 2 schools. The market is inundated with anesthetist and salaries have declined slightly b/c of it. But nationally, the shortage still exists ...
  11. Acceptance from alternate list.

    Dont know what to tell you bro. That sucks. I wish you guys the best in the future though. I know several spectacular nurses that had to go back repeatedly before they were accepted. One went back 5x's before they took her. Be tenacious. and when she...
  12. bills bills bills

    LOL Dixie you make it sound like you stepped in something lol. Dont forget to wipe your shoes off! I understood what you meant though. I figured it was a different area of masters pursuit. No harm no foul :)
  13. money involved in becoming a crna

    Where I live we have 2 schools here locally. One is private (Samford U) and the other is UAB. Samfords total price totals out around 70k (have a friend in the program there now), I was accepted at UAB and they claim it will total out around 32k. Of c...
  14. Online BSN

    Getting an RN degree entirely online would be.......not smart :) You would not be remotely prepared. As for the online degree from ADN to BSN....go talk to the director of the program you are interested in. Ask them what they think of it. Part of min...
  15. Erlanger Acceptance Letter

    UAB starts at the end of August. 27 month program. And yes it is a HUGE relief. I had two "5 year plans" for myself. One was.........just in case I dont make it lol. Now I know which to go with May sound crazy but I think I want to teach later on
