    TCU CRNA program for January 2015

    I don't think its alphabetically, mine is on the 18th too and my last name is towards the beginning of the alphabet! But you know what they say... save the best for last, right?! hah. I've heard they interview up to 150 people but thats just hearsay....

    Chances? Wait 1 or 2 years to apply?

    Scooby-Do! I tried to send you a PM but it won't let me since I don't have enough posts on this site. If you send me another PM w/ an email address or something I'll send it to you again

    Torn - CRNA or not?

    I had doubts too. I briefly considered going to NP school instead.. it'd be way cheaper, I could work full time and my hospital would even pay 5000 a year. But.. when I thought about going to NP school, it didn't give me the same excited, jittery fee...

    How do my chances look?

    Does your school have a minimum requirement for the GRE? The school I applied to requires >302 total and they basically told people that they pretty much toss your application if you don't meet that requirement... Maybe with a few VERY RARE except...

    Resume/Cover Letter Tips for Landing an ICU Interview

    Hey! The ICU is for sure the best place to be! You should definitely mention your internship in school and how you developed your passion for critical care during that time. You went on to a med/surg tele just to get that "experience" all the nursing...

    Cvvhd

    On our floor we NEVER have 1:1 patients and we run crrt a lot. The only exception would be if our patient was on cvvhd waiting for a transplant, the day they get the transplant we go to OR with them to run the machine. But other than that, its always...

    New in the ICU

    1. Read! A lot! Buy all of those critical care nursing books and just read them all! Since you'll be in CV, memorize ALL of the vasoactive gtts and also be able to interpret hemodynamic profiles! You are expected to know this, even as a new grad. ...

    Worst med error - stories?

    Ahhh I was asked this question in an interview once! The only one I can think of (that I know of) was pretty bad... I had a patient who pretty much went into respiratory arrest (ended up being a hugeeee mucus plug), we had to RSI him, standard dosing...

    To apply or not to apply....

    I have a dilemma here! Considering applying for CRNA school next year for starting class of 2014 but I am not sure if I should wait one more year for the added experience and chance to gain better LOCs, CEs, volunteer work, shadowing etc etc... St...

    Chances? Wait 1 or 2 years to apply?

    Thank you so much! They changed the scoring system on the GRE btw! But for the school I want to go to you actually have to get >1100 if you are looking at the old test... >302 on the new one. I took a practice GRE on the Kaplan website and real...

    Chances? Wait 1 or 2 years to apply?

    You all seem to have much more faith in me than I have in myself! Hah, thanks for the words of encouragement. I need that. I just want my application to be absolutely perfect before I submit it ...and the GRE test freaks me out... Seriously though...
