    I interviewed that day but haven’t heard anything yet 😓😓

    Advent Health University CRNA 2022 cohort

    I applied the first day it opened 😅! Waiting to hear something. Fingers crossed.

    Barry University SCRNA 2021

    Congratulations to everybody accepted! I applied and was denied this round but I’ll keep trying for next year! 4 years MSICU at a Level 1 Trauma, 3.6 graduate GPA in an AGACNP program that I’m not passionate about, CCRN, charge and preceptor experience, low GRE (282) but am studying to retake, and plan on taking a Chemistry with a lab. We’ll see about next year!

    That's amazing Lovetoker22!!! I wish the programs in my area weren't 3 year programs. All three schools have transitioned over to the DNP this upcoming program. We will be in similar situations when I start (hopefully), except I'll be in school longer . I wish you all the best of luck! You got this!

    Thank you all for your responses. This has definitely given me a lot to think about and consider. I really appreciate you guys!

    Exactly. I figure that there are 24 hours in a day and it should be quite doable to make time for the things that are important. I hear people all the time say that "you neglect your family for 3 years" and "it takes all your free time" blah blah but I wasn't sure how accurate that was. Even if we spend like 50 hours a week to school (studying, class, clinicals) wouldn't that leave a lot of time still left over or am I missing something?

    CRNA School with a young family

    Hello Everyone! I have a question that I am wanting other perspectives on. I am a MSICU RN at a Level 1 Trauma Center and have been for about 1.5 years. As you can see from the title, I am wanting to go to CRNA school; have wanted to for some time now. I am a mother of 2 young boys, currently on maternity leave actually :) my eldest is 2. My husband is very supportive as well. My question is with the programs all being DNP programs, do you SRNA's have time for family still? I completely understand the program is intense and you basically breathe Anesthesia. But wouldn't you treat it like your "job" and still have "free time"? I know I want to do this more than anything, but I don't want to make a selfish decision when we have our family to consider. I know that it will be worth it in the end, but what about during the 3 years.
  8. Hello all, I have a bit of a dilemma. I was just hired at a Level 1 Trauma Center in ICU which I am soo excited about. However, I wanted to stay at my current job in Med/Surg PRN. The reason I am hesitating is because the training for ICU is 9 weeks long and it is didactic Mon through Fri. My current place of work just changed their PRN work requirements to 4 shifts a month from 2. I have an almost 6 month old at home, a husband, and am in school for my BSN. Should I just drop the PRN until the end of training or basically stick it out and work 6 days a week for 9 weeks?
