I completely agree with mgray3 and rocknrolling. They main focus of the interview is to get to know you and they really do want to see you succeed. Your success is their success.
I think a big part of me wanting to start this thread is to help everyone relax a bit so they can put their best foot forward.
Good luck everyone! Post here if you get in! You should hear relatively quickly. A phone call in 2-3 weeks for those who get in or an email in 3-4 weeks if waitlisted. I was originally waitlisted so don't worry if you are. The fee to hold your spot is $100 and sometimes people hold their spot and then drop if accepted to a different school. And sometimes they drop for other reasons.
Also, if not accepted this round, spend the next year improving your resume. They'll know if you submit the same of everything, especially the essay. My biggest suggestions is to get certifications (CCRN, TNCC, etc). If you work with adults, try to get out of your comfort zone and get into a PICU. If you work with peds, get into an adult ICU, CVICU being the best experience in MY opinion. Also, there are two classes you can take without being a Clarkson student yet: graduate statistics (preferably one with an emphasis on nursing research- Clarkson has a great 100% online one) and graduate level nursing research (recommend anywhere but Clarkson, message me for details).
As I said before, I'm a first year SRNA and I wanted to get info out on Clarkson bc I really love this program and I love to talk about it. Message me for info or email me, firstname.lastname@example.org, if you don't want to post on this thread. Even if someone comes across this thread 10 years from now. I'll appreciate the break from studying lol.
