    LSU CRNA 2021

    I did early September, they just called me Friday to offer me a spot but I think I will be declining for another school. So don’t give up. They are also sending alternate list letters

    She wasn’t in mine. There were like 5 people in mine, I didn’t think to write any names down.

    Thanks for the help! I passed!

    On the qbank I would do 75 questions at a time.. My scores averaged in the 50s for each quiz.. Sometimes I would get 60-64 other times 52, 59.. Etc. the important thing is that I would read my rationales to determine why I got something wrong/right. The SATA..it was all over the place man...but it def wasn't as hard as kaplan.. I will say that. For example the question reads blah blah blah blah 1. A 2. b 3. C 4. D I might be sure A n C were correct, B was wrong, but wasn't sure about D.. So that's what was hard about SATA.. The answer your not sure about... Sometimes I knew the whole answer.. to be honest I don't think any type of SATA training would have helped me.. It's kind of just critical thinking with some luck thrown in.

    Hi everyone.. My story is similar to most on here, but I wanted to share and express my thanks to everyone who contributes to this forum because it's such a great tool. The tools I used were: 1. Hurst review book (got for free from my sister) 2. Kaplan qbank ($300) I finished all questions and sample tests with an overall 59% READ ALL RATIONALES!!! 3. The 35 page guide that's on here.. Really helps with infection control 4. ATI predictor exam i studied about 4-6 weeks for the test and 2 days before Nclex I took the ATI predictor exam and it told me I had a 98% chance of passing so I quit studying after that lol.. I agree not to study the day before your test. as for the test itself.. To be honest It asks some stuff I'm not entirely familiar with but since I had read on here that it doesn't matter what the disease is it's all about what's safe for the patient. I got a lot of SATA, some put things In order, and some meds, no math, no EKG. Be familiar with ethical/legal concepts I'm glad I took that elective lol. All in all I wasn't sure about most of my answers but I figured since they kept giving me SATA I was doing well. I ended up doing 75 questions in 1.5 hours and was anxious the whole time. After it was over I got the good pop up and today I saw RN after my name on my states BON website. So in the end I think if you prepare and again review rationales weekly you will have a pretty good chance! Anyway thanks everyone for all your great tips and help. And good luck to all who are still waiting to Test!

    eh.. maybe im pessimistic but its not a terrible idea to cut the program. from a business standpoint there are tons of other nursing schools in the state and losing LSU's would not be such a terrible loss to the state. However for those who have gotten accepted for the Fall and are currently in the program like myself dont be alarmed because they would have to let us finish because other nursing schools would not accept our credits and we would essentially have to "start over" which is not an option to me. any way lets not worry about that and focus on doing our best in school. Congrats to all the new soph 1s and Soph 2s... smh that was the worst 2 semesters of my academic career But im glad to finally be a Junior lol. and there is no way but up from here!

    hey all its been a while since i been on here. congrats to the spring 2012 class for their acceptance. let me tell you a few words of advice. nursing school is hard work! physiology will be your hardest class hands down not because you dont know the info but because the questions require you to think more critically then before. Anatomy was not bad but the spring teacher is more difficult then the guy we had this semester. Intro is just boring and tedious. anyways for phys READ THE BOOK! for anatomy make sure you GO TO LAB when your studying. I guarentee that if you put in the work you will be successful. however LSU health is NOT a party school so if your coming from LSU it is a culture shock because the enviroment is not the same. make sure that you understand that you will be studying MOST of the time and it helps to have a study partner. anyways good luck everyone its not impossible. I passed my first semester on the first try!

    I have also been lazy. I finished all my paper work for The June 23 session but I have not even looked at the compliance training. but the email said that it needs to be completed 90 days AFTER the start of your program. so you have a while to finish it. Since school starts on Aug 17. anyway I'll see you all on the 23rd.

    Allie don't let one letter deter you from getting a BSN if that's what you want to do. There are dozens of nursing schools and by the time we graduate we will all be in the same pool. Cheer up! You will be fine! Praying always helps me when I feel lost

    By the way is anyone else trying to live on campus? I sent in my housing stuff yesterday as well. As of now I just need to get these health forms done

    Aww man I hope y'all get in, especially if its ur second time applying... Maybe they sent the letter to the wrong address? If not you may want to consider other programs, its just that you don't need to be wasting any more time not being in school. At the end of the day everyone has the same qualifications no matter the school. By the way I just sent off my admission fees yesterday so it should get there by Friday but if your stressing you have 10 business days, those people are so lazy i doubt they work on weekends

    The best thing to do is relax, and focus on other things, I'm still in school (done with prereqs) just working on my plan B in case I do not get in.
