    Did you disclose your Plans for CRNA school

    First time I worked ICU, I didn't tell anyone. Almost 3 yrs later after coming from the ER, I made my director aware and she was supportive. I put in the work, got my CCRN, volunteered for the hardest pt, helped teach review classes, got the opportunity to be charge nurse and took CABG/balloon pump/Impella. I have to say that when I applied, it wasn't common knowledge. People only found out after I got in. For the most part, everyone has been supportive and genuinely happy for me. My first time in ICU they hated the idea of new grads in ICU so my goals didn't get into the air. I didn't talk about it. As someone said before, feel out your environment before you open your mouth because some old nurses take it personally and make it a vendetta to block your progress. I was blessed to not have had that type of atmosphere. Look out for yourself and be true to your aspirations. No one cares when people go on to be NPs as much as it hurts when they hear CRNA for some reason. IDK why it stings more.

    After getting into CRNA School, What's next?

    Thank you! I've been busy working, but will take a week and a half off to relax before school starts.
  3. I graduated from the program in 2014. Loved that even though it was tough and tasking, I still had time to have fun evenings with friends It also offered a great co-op program that allowed us to Work at the South Med Center, a level 1 trauma facility. Great experiences that made me the strong nurse that I am today. Dr. Jacobs was by far my favorite professor. He knows his stuff inside and out. He was a great asset to the program.

    How I made $93,000 my first year of nursing

    I think that the differentials and incentives are awesome!! My hospital only a year ago started offering $4/h for the weekends and have long since removed bonuses fo working. When they did have bonuses, it was $200, not $10/h. Must be great where you work. What state is that? Here is South Texas, we do not get such rates.
  5. Hello everyone!! I guess I am a little nervous. I don't want to go to school unprepared. Anything that you wish that people told you to have? Like I have heard from some the need for a recorder. Anything else for current CRNA students? Any advice is appreciated!!!

    There is still time. Don't lose hope. You got an interview and did not get a flat-out rejection so your name is still in the loop.

    Thanks. It makes me a little nervous that they have rolling acceptances and interviews.

    Okay. Thanks. I am just waiting on my class grades to post from this semester so that they get cleared and verified by NursingCAS. I was hoping to have it all finalzed before the end of the year, but I guess we'll see.

    How long did it take you all for your applications to be verified on NursingCAS, before they contacted you for an interview?

    Missouri State University

    I have been looking up information on this school and it is just hard finding alot of information on this school or even what their interviews are like. So I'll be glad to see what others have to say about this school.

    University of St Francis, Ft Wayne, IN

    Hello everyone. I was looking into USF, Fort Wayne, IN and found that since they are a new program, there is not much information on them online. I was wondering if anyone knows about any information I can on get them, like whether they like the school, the interview process, and such like that. Any information would be appreciated as I am interested in applying for the Fall 2019 cohort. Thanks!

    I love it so far. Lots of reading. But one thing is for sure, that I am learning so much. I think they accept about 25 people.

    Online FNP Programs, Spring Admissions

    University of South Alabama or another South University? I get confused sometimes because I did my BSN at USA and we call it south, but there might be another school with that name.

    That makes sense. They must have just decided that because I called on multiple occasions. But, it looks legit. Congratulations and good luck in the program.

    I checked out the website. Doesn't look true in the website.
