    VCU CRNA DNAP 2021

    I did the same, uploaded unofficial transcripts and sent official GRE scores from ETS. I'm appreciative that some schools are allowing unofficial copies be electronically uploaded to save a bit of money.

    Did anyone inquire or find guidance on the statement of intent in terms of a word limit? This is the only program that hasn't stated one explicitly thus far, I was surprised.

    Less than a month to go until apps are due everyone, how's it goin'? Anyone still have to tackle the GRE?

    VCU DNAP 2020 Applicants

    Hey everyone, a question for those of accepted to your respective distance sites (Abingdon, Roanoke, NoVA), I wanted to pose a question. The application states "first priority is given to applicants who reside in the area surrounding each respective site at the time of application." Was this understood to be the case when you applied for your cohort and do you feel that it held true? In other words, those of you who chose sites other than Richmond, did you live close to your respective site?

    Does anyone recall which method they would use to notify of decisions? Application status online, mail or phone? I don't recall them specifically mentioning when I interviewed.

    Johns Hopkins DNP CRNA 2020

    Yes, Dr. Pellegrini (University of Maryland program director) has reportedly assisted with the JHSON program initiation, however I don't know how much of a hand he may have had in it or if it was just guidance.

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

    Thanks for your perspective, where are you going to school for nurse anesthesia?

    Georgetown University CRNA DNP 2020

    It was a great group... Both the other candidates and the students we were able to talk to. I felt very comfortable talking to them and they were very sincere about what they enjoyed about the program. They didn't pull any punches about how rigorous it is but also emphasized that they do have a school/life balance. I loved the vibe.

    Good luck to everyone interviewing tomorrow, I’ll be there, excited to meet you all!

    @magicpandora and @CowboyMedic Hey, just wanted to keep the conversation on track for anyone who wants to talk about the Hopkins DNP Nurse Anesthesia program, as to not confuse anyone who is jumping into this conversation.

    To retake chemistry for CRNA school?

    This is very program specific in my experience. One program I’ve applied to requires you to retake a Biochemistry focused course within five years at a 4-year university (not a community college). Another program ‘recommends,’ you to have taken a Fundamentals/Biochem course within the past five years, and doesn’t have a preference for where you take it. So, contact the programs you want to apply to and ask them directly. Don’t waste time taking something that won’t help you.

    Good morning, I don’t have any tips on how to pass that specific exam, I no longer work at Hopkins. I would imagine refreshing your knowledge of cardiac rhythms, heart blocks and STEMI territories would be appropriate. You may never have had to interpret ECGs before, but it is within your scope to identify lethal cardiac arrhythmias, rhythm changes or concerns with dynamic ST changes. This thread is regarding their Nurse Anesthesiology DNP program, so you are welcome to start a new thread in a relevant area where you will receive more input.
