    Saint Mary’s Minnesota CRNA

    Hello All 👋🏽 I recently applied to Saint Mary's and I'm hoping to get some feedback from those who have already started their program. Any information is helpful. This may not apply to the nurse anesthesia program specifically but the graduation rate according to Google is something like 61%. If accepted, I'll be moving from out of state and would love to have the confidence that I made the right decision.

    Saint Mary’s 2022

    I've applied but I'm probably overthinking your question because I don't know (specifically) what you're asking. Their application is the most straight forward application I've completed so far. At some point they'll start contacting selected candidates for interviews and judging by what I read on the last cohort's thread, it's a "get to know you" type interview. Good luck if you're also applying.

    FIU CRNA Spring 2022 start

    I was lurking to see if anyone else received the email. I already applied and also did not receive an email. I'm not really clear on what the email was about. Creating an interview schedule almost sounds like it should have been an internal email 🤷🏽‍♀️ Just over here anxiously waiting ...

    CRNA Application for Barry May 2022 Cohort

    Called today (may be a bit persistent but I have people writing my recommendations that are asking me when I'm sending the link) and was told the person who handles NursingCAS was notified yesterday and she will be told again today. I was hoping they would say how long it usually takes to fix the situation 😕

    Various Calculations of GPA. Which is it??

    Edited to say: I decided to actually use a GPA calculator (instead of guessing) so my coursework going from ASN to BSN is a 3.7.

    CRNA Application for Barry May 2022 Cohort

    I just emailed them to see if they will give an update. They've been pretty quick to respond by the next business day in the past 🤞

    Various Calculations of GPA. Which is it??

    Hi All, I feel like I'm grabbing at straws with this post but my curiosity has the best of me after spending a great deal of time on multiple CRNA program applications. I'm keeping in mind that some schools take cumulative, some the last 60 hours, etc., but I'm also seeing schools asking for grades in all applicable sciences and statistics. I'm wondering how heavily the science grade is considered. I have another Bachelor's where I didn't really apply myself that's about a 3.0. Then my ASN & BSN is a 3.25 (life got the best of me with me ASN) but my science and Statistics grade is a 4.0. I'm really hoping the Sciences will help me out. Anyone who's been accepted (or know of someone who's been accepted) with a similar situation? Without listing all my stats, I'm a good student 2+ years ICU, minimum required GRE score but not an obvious shoo-in.

    PVT IS DEAD! Don't try the "new" trick

    Just updating: I did pass! Started getting the CC screen after the update on Sunday but I did get the good pop up on Saturday. You have to play Russian Roulette with your credit card to do the test and apparently you could still be charged even if you pass. Not worth the $200 risk for me. Since it's during the week, hopefully your wait won't be as long as mine. It was a long 2 days ...

    2014 Pearson Vue Trick (PVT) Poll

    I doesn't work in the same way. I just got confirmation via the FL Grade Report on the Dept of Health website that confirms I passed (took my exam 8/23) and I got a CC screen since the update. I did however get the good pop up before the changes Saturday evening.

    2014 Pearson Vue Trick (PVT) Poll

    Of course the change would come while I'm waiting for my results lol. I got the "good" pop up all day yesterday and woke up to the credit card page this morning. I've been sick over it all day! Glad to see there's still hope

    PVT IS DEAD! Don't try the "new" trick

    I can't tell you how happy I am to see this post! I took my exam yesterday morning. Came home and did the test and got the good pop up (all afternoon into the evening) only to find that after the update, I went to the credit card page! I've been sick with anxiety all day over it. I am not going to go so far as to see if it accepts my $200 for a new test or stops me (the new new pvt) but I am happy to know I'm not the only one getting the CC screen today. There's still hope!
  14. Hello all, I recently graduated and have accepted an RN position at a new rehab hospital opening in my area in October. They deal with brain and spinal cord injuries, amputees, etc. I'm excited because it's a new facility and the starting pay is right in line with what the established hospital systems are paying the new nurses. One thing that I'm concerned about is apparently I could be caring for up to 10 patients. The way the CNO explained it to me is that the patients are doing 3+ hours of rehab (so they wouldn't be there all at the same time) and aren't on numerous drips like you might have in the traditional hospital. Well, almost three months later, the floor I did my practicum on is finally expressing interest. That floor is within the system that I thought I wanted to work for but I didn't find the nurses to be the friendliest which made me actually happy that my practicum was over. It wasn't even the majority mind you, but I had never had those experiences through the entire program until I ended up on this particular floor. The good thing about this floor is that they only care for 3 pateints (4th on rotation) however it's total care. FYI: I would love to be an OR, Women's Health, or ER nurse. So my question: For you rehab nurses, assuming rehab wasn't your first choice out of nursing school, would you go into rehab nursing again? I have the choice between the rehab hospital and a spot as a CVPCU nurse. I know many factors play a part in making a decision but I'd love to hear your thoughts ...
