    Accepted! Still deciding between here and another school, though. That’s one heck of a deposit! Anyone knows if it counts toward tuition?

    Thanks for sharing. Hopefully (for my sake) calls are still happening. Congratulations again!

    From previous years, it seems like calls have typically been made in the evening. I just realized that it’s MLK Day, so I’m wondering if calls will actually be made today.

    Well, that was a fairly fast interview, even with my own questions! I think mine was 15 minutes tops. Of course, I won’t disclose any questions to keep the integrity of the process, but it was consistent with prior comments about BC’s interview process. Good luck, everyone!

    No invite on my end yet. Fingers crossed!

    Sorry, I’m not the one who you were addressing, but was there a round of interview invites that already went out? After I took the exam, my proctor stated that interview invites will be sent in December like in ExceptionRN’s post. Or are you talking about some other kind of invitation?

    I would contact the individual emailing you over at OHSU if you haven’t yet been scheduled.

    Also was asked to take an exam. Good luck, everyone! The email came from an individual with an OHSU email address.

    Anyone have any idea of when interview invites get sent out?

    Hmm, didn’t get any communication yet. Hopefully they didn’t send interview invites all out at the same time. =[
  12. Question in title. Let’s hear em!

    Applying for this non-priority application cycle due 10/31/2020. Good luck, everyone! (not too much luck though, hahah)
  14. Just wondering - how was your transition from an RN in your ICU into being an SRNA when it comes to work? My specific questions are: 1) Did you let your manager know that you were leaving, ask for a letter recommendation, apply, and then quit when you got accepted? What was the order of events when it came to leaving your job as an RN in the ICU? 2) Did you manager know that you had a goal of becoming a CRNA prior to being hired? How long did you work before applying? If he/she did not, when did you let them know about your plans to move onto CRNA school? I ask because I'm planning to work in a cardiac ICU, and I have the eventual goal of becoming a CRNA. I've been told by an experienced nurse on that specific unit (whose judgement I trust) to not mention it in my interview. I'm anticipating that I'll work for 2-3 years, do other prerequisites and certifications during that time, and then move on when I feel that I have a good shot at being accepted. I don't want to destroy my chances of being accepted onto the unit in the first place, but I don't want to burn any bridges either.
  15. Student here. Might be an obvious question, but I just don't know so I should ask: 1) What are different ways that you've seen nurses cover up IVs for patients who shower? What about protecting central line dressings from water? What about protecting wound dressings from water? (I've seen a few simple things nurses do to help protect sites from getting wet, but I just wanted to hear everyone general response for each of these three since I haven't seen all of these situations yet.) 2) What are the most important factors that determine whether it's safe for a patient to shower or not? Or whether they should just get a bed bath. 3) What are some other situations in hospitals that prevent regular showers for patients. (Besides bed rest or the obvious situation of a patient not able to get to a shower.) Thanks for the help!
