    UAB 2019 CRNA Applicants

    Just wondering if anyone else have the "option of completing your clinical portion of the program at the Mobile clinical component site, pending COA approval" statement included in their acceptance letter? Or is that just for the students interested in the Mobile clinical component site

    Hi, I was wondering if anyone would be willing to share some insight as to how the UAB interviews are? (how many interviewers, more personal or clinical questions, etc.) Any tips or suggestions would be much appreciated! :)

    USF CRNA DNP 2019 Program

    Hi walkerrn2015, BSN, RN! I'm planning to apply to USF this year and I know for their applications they prefer LOC to come from a CRNA/MDA, nursing supervisor and nursing professor. I was wondering who your recommenders were? I was wondering if they would consider me if my LOC I have a intensivist MD, Director of critical care and colleague/coworker?

    NEW Grad Interviewing for MICU. HELP!

    Congrats on the job! I too am in the same position as you, wanting to work in ICU with little to no ICU experience. What kinds of questions did they ask you so I can get some insight as to what to expect in future ICU interviews?

    New Grad working in SICU

    Congrats on getting the ICU job! I am in the same position. I was able to have a meeting showing my interest in the ICU with the ICU nursing director and CNO and have a second follow-up interview soon. Did you have any prior ICU experience like CNA/PCA or senior practicum/externship? Also, what kind of questions did they ask you in your 1st interview?

    Thank you!! How long did you work on the tele/med-surg floor before you moved to the SICU? I believe my interview I will have is in the SICU as well!! If there's any interview questions or prep you remember that you can give me some idea as to what my upcoming interview will be like i would very much appreciate it! I would have no problem working on the tele floor if i am not hired directly into the ICU, I've always loved anything cardiac related and think it's a great place to gain experience! And no I do not have my ACLS although I should've gotten it, but a lot of classmates/colleagues/nurses told me I didn't really need it because they offer it in training if I was to work in the ICU.

    UAB 2015 CRNA application stats

    Just wondering if you don't mind me asking, what was your friend's GPA? I am interested in applying to UAB's CRNA program in the future and I've heard that they won't even give an interview to anyone with a GPA of 3.5 or higher.

    Thank you for the advice! Just curious, what was your nurse-patient ratio on your tele floor? I was actually offered a job in Telemetry at one of the best hospitals where i'm at and it's also a step-down unit for the Neuro ICU and they get some patients from the CCU as well. I'm highly considering accepting the position to work on that Tele unit if I am not able to directly get into an ICU first and i definitely wouldn't mind the experience that i would gain being on this unit considering that I am a new grad nurse with no icu experience. I actually have an interview for an ICU position in a couple of days, so hopefully it goes well!

    I have heard of the nurse residency programs and if they offered programs like that where I live I would love to get into one, but unfortunately I live in a smaller town in Alabama and they don't offer those programs where I am at.

    Congrats, that's awesome to hear! Did you have any prior ICU experience (e.g. senior practicum/internship in nursing school or PCA/CNA job experience, etc.) before you got hired into the MICU?

    Best transition into ICU/CCU?

    Hi guys! I just passed my NCLEX and my dream job is to work in the ICU, preferrably CCU eventually. I have no prior ICU experience except minimal experience during my ICU clinical rotations during nursing school and I know it is harder for new grads with no experience to obtain a job in the ICU right out of nursing school. So I was wondering what would be the best area for me to work in to gain the experience and knowledge to eventually transition into ICU/CCU in a year or less, e.g. PCU or telemetry? Thanks!
