    I am also waiting for a letter, what date is your interview. You are coming all the way from CA, to a really small PA town. I am approx one hour from the campus. Did you apply to any other PA schools.

    Accepted, now what's next financially, homelife

    Thank you all for the advice, sorry it took so long to respond, been kind of busy with school, family, and work. To Sicubaby, I got accepted to Frank J.Tornetta it's in Philadlephia, I am taking all of my msn courses, then start clinical aspect in 2014. I received good news from stafford loans, and my school offers a deferred tuition payment plan for tuition assistance. So everything seems to have worked out, so I will keep my fingers crossed that it continues. Good luck to all, and thanks.

    Excela School of Anesthesia...

    josephj, I interviewed at Frank J Tornetta in Aug, and got accepted for the 2014 class. Director is very nice. I am currently taking msn courses at LaSalle. Their program allows you to take all msn courses before starting anesethesia clinical residency. Good Luck, maybe we will be in same class for 2014
  8. Hello all I am writing this thread for some advice. A brief history; married, father of 3 kids ages now 8,6,2, wife stay at home mom now but will pick up part time work during school. Taking msn courses now, clinical starts in 2014. First dillema, cannot get student loans because of a loan that is currently in default from BSN course, so doing overtime to pay for each class as I go. Can anyone tell me how much debt they incurred for their program. I also plan on joining the navy reserves when my clinical starts, but do not owe them time until after graduation. My general question is I have an idea of what a CRNA makes as a new grad (115,000-150,00) please correct me if I am wrong, but my question is with a mortgage, student loans and other fixed family expenses, what is the average amount of repayment on your graduate loans, and is there money left over. I am not materialistic, nor do I plan on becoming. I have a modest mortgage, and 2 not to fancy cars and some credit card debt. I know it sounds great to make two times your nursing salary, but my wife is having a hard time seeing the positive in this 4.5 yr journey. Also would like to hear from people that went through any program with kids. Was there ample amount of time with family? Did anyone ever get divorced because of the committment required, please be honest because my wife is very supportive, but sometimes she has days were acting like a single mother is a lot to go through? If anyone can give an updated "day in the life" it would also be greatly appreciated. I have previous day in the life post and found them to be very informative. Finally, is there a online support group for spouses of SRNA's, if so please post? Thank you everyone for any response, all are greatly appreciated.

    Online CRNA

    Hello Fawn, I am new to this thread, but I saw that you are currently enrolled at Bloomsburg. I have applied there for 2012. I will be taking 501(theory;I think) in fall of 2011. Any pointers on the interview process. If you don't mind, where did you work prior to applying. I currently work at Geisinger Wyoming Valley MSICU. I was planning on taking online summer courses but they were filled. Good luck to you, hope to hear from you about the program. Thanks
  13. Hello everyone, I have a question regarding how many letters of reference should I send. The University I am applying to requires 3(one from a crna). I have asked approximateley 5-6 professionals to write letters. I have asked Chief anesthesiologist, fellow ICU nurse, undergraduate professor, 2 CRNA's, and CT surg PA who also works in the ICU on the overnight shift. So my question is, what are the top 3, and should I send more than 3. Any replies will be appreciated. Thank you
