    GPA for CRNA

    I had 3.17 GPA- work at a Cardiac MedicalICU at one of the best hospitals in the country for nearly 2.5 years. Had all my certs, even some I didn't need, backed up with 10+ years of firefighting and EMS experience. My science grades were good except ...

    Anyone apply to St. Mary's CRNA 2019?

    Go ask a student what school it says on their diploma. MSA students diplomas come from SMU, in case you didn't know. So it's really like applying to the same school if you think about it.

    Looking for options/opinions

    Well in cath lab, depending on where you work could be doing cardiac cath (obviously), maybe EP studied, abalations, Pacemaker or AICD implants, TEEs, Cardioversuons. You could have an emergency come from the ER, TAVRs, Watchman LAA closures etc. Bot...

    Looking for options/opinions

    Depends what cath lab you work in. Where I work our cath lab is super super busy, 99% of the time. You also have to take call, so does that sound like fun to you? If so then go for it. But based on what you've said it doesn't. Listen, nursing is a ha...

    Saint Mary's University CRNA Program

    I think I've commented multiple times on this actually. Search a little bit and you'll find my feelings on SMU. I had a great time, a few hiccups along the way but all from my own doing, nothing but good things to say. I also love the twin cities, I'...

    Cost Of School

    Honestly- graduate first and live with your parents and stack money. I did just this and had nearly 100K before I went off to school. That saved me from having to take 100-150K in loans. Instead I had less than 60 and I'm more than halfway thru payin...

    Track to being a future CRNA?

    I worked in a prestigious NYC hospital in an extremely busy CMICU. However, I had a great crew and colleagues that I worked with, which made the 3 am emergent bedside ECMO, not so bad. If you want to get into crna school then you'll do whatever it ta...

    Traveling for clinical rotations

    I didn't own a home when I moved to MN for anesthesia school. Me and my fiancé rented but I had also saved up quite the sum of money and she worked to help with bills rents etc. The furthest I traveled was 4 hrs away. If the clinical site was more t...

    Anyone applied to St Mary's

    I remember waiting until July back in 2013. Nerve racking to say the least. Wish you all the best of luck.

    SRNA Switching Schools

    I'm sorry your engagement ended and I get that it sucks. But I'm a current Crna and I'll tel you the truth about what you're about to do, if you haven't already. Going to once school and then transferring is typically not done, and is usually extreme...
