    Nope, just obsessively refreshing my email and this page 😂😂.

    National University 2022 start

    I received my rejection letter on Sept 5th last year via mail.

    National University 2022 start

    Hey there 3rd time applicant to NU here. I interviewed the first year but they were worried about my GPA. Retook some courses, built a rapport with the director, attended open houses and even shadowed a class of the physiology professor who was so hard on my GPA. Then I reapplied only to find out most of the faculty left so I did not get an interview. I was have been in contact with the asst director and he said "I look forward to your application and interview" so I'm trying not to get my hopes up but I reallllly want this! Interview is all personal questions and via Zoom this year. You'll get a link to the critical thinking test which is a little weird but you can't study for it. Good luck! 🍀Don't mind me, I'll just be anxiously checking my mail every day😂😂

    I am going to defer 1 year and give CRNA one more try so that opens up one spot in the AGACNP program!

    Vanderbilt 2021 Direct Entry

    I really lost my passion and motivation for it after that last rejection. I worked so hard to build a rapport with the faculty and they had a mass exodus. But this new asst director seems really good and I think I have a good case for admission. I just don't want to put all my eggs in one basket. Plus I figured Fall at Vandy would really discipline me and maybe give me a head start on my potential classmates, academically speaking.

    Same. Mine was only $4200 I think. I'm not sure I can justify taking out $150k in loans to help with living expenses. I actually gave up on CRNA school after 12 rejections over about 4 years. However, one program director said he was impressed with my dedication and wanted to interview me this August for a December start. I'm not sure if I should start Vandy and drop out if I get in, or just not start and hope for CRNA this Fall.

    @PiperLambieDid you apply before the priority deadline?

    Vanderbilt 2021 Direct Entry

    I can't remember exactly but there is a link somewhere on the site to an exit survey from the students and it has those numbers (how many surveys were sent and how many were filled out).

    Yes. You are nationally accredited by the NBCRNA so you can practice in all 50 states. I have heard that it is a bit more difficult to find a job and that the students don't get a ton of experience with regional or blocks. Just depends on where you want to work.

    Vanderbilt 2021 Direct Entry

    Hey all! Nice to meet you. I have been applying for CRNA school for the past ~3 years with no luck (2 interviews but have retaken classes and boosted my GPA as much as possible). I've somewhat lost my drive for it, so have decided to pursue the MSN here at Vandy in hopes of still becoming an advanced practice provider. I've submitted my app but still waiting for a snail mail transcript from one school, so it appears I've missed the early deadline. I'm an ED RN but spent a couple years in the ICU for CRNA applications. I love the ED as a nurse, but want to be doing hands-on procedures. Therefore I applied for the AGACNP route. Does anyone know how many spots each specialty offers? And what about you? How did you decide which specialty to pursue?

    FranU CRNA 2021

    Mine was with the program director and another faculty (I knew choosing one of the 3 days on the second option was going to be a different/ special panel). I felt okay until the last question about Pathophys... I wasn't sure how much detail I should go into but I definitely didn't blow that out of the water. I also know they looked down on my decision to return to the ED after a few years of ICU. So I'll be surprised if I get in. Who was on your panel?

    Same. I screwed up in undergrad and have been taking classes for 3 years now to make up for it. I'm not sure I still have the drive I used to when I started 😞😞 Yes, I've received the same generic letter saying all accepted applicants have had a science in the past XYZ months, etc. I was hoping that 3 apps in a row would count for something but it's hard to compete with 4.0 GPAs and years of ICU experience.
  13. Hello,

    Do you know how the critical thinking exam went for NU nursing anesthesia program?

     

    Thanks

      You can't study for it. But there is a lot of new leadership in the program so I wouldn't be surprised if requirements were different this year.

    I was also concerned, but they calculated it different this year. They included a whole bunch of classes that were not typical science courses so my science GPA is up to a 3.4 from 3.1 at most other schools🤞 I'm going to venture to say it'll be a little bit longer this year with everything happening in Minneapolis😞😞

    Did you read the thread at all? There are several listed. I am planning on doing UMass this Fall.

    Online Pharm or Pathophys for CRNA

    Do you know if it's only offered in the Spring? I was wanting to take it this Fall and admissions was not very helpful😑
