Samford CRNA 2018

Posted

Just wanted to start the official thread for Samford's 2018 applicant class since applications are due tomorrow! So excited and nervous!

Does anyone know when they give out interviews?

Hey! I applied as well, haven't heard anything yet - but from looking at old threads, it appeared like people were getting notified end of June/early July and had interviews in August? The posts I saw were from a couple of years ago, so I'm not sure how accurate they are! Hope we will be hearing something soon :)

I have seen interview invites as early as mid-June and then actual interviews in July. We will see!

Did you apply to the DNP or the Master's program?

To be honest, I was under the impression that doctoral was the only option staring in 2018, so I'm fairly certain that's what I applied for - although, if I could get away with just a master's degree, I would definitely try and pursue that potentially!

Does anyone know of someone in the program?.. any inputs or advice for the interview?.. clinical questions vs. personal (or get-to-know-you) questions??

Congratulations! I got an interview as well! So so so happy!

I have heard that it's a fairly laid back, get to know you type of interview. That's all I've heard so far.

Thank you!! And Congratulations to you as well and to anminor08!

I'm interviewing as well, Monday the 24th (gotta get that over with haha!); I worked in the OR with a CRNA who went to Samford, she says the interview process is fairly laid back, mostly personal questions, some clinical (but based primarily on your specialty!). And did y'all see they send out acceptance letters July 31st?! That's so awesome!!

Congratulations!!! are you going in the morning or afternoon?

Hi yall!

I got an invitation to interview as well!

Does anyone know what the statistics are for how many applied vs how many get interviews vs how many get accepted?

I have seen the standard number of class sizes approx. 30 and over 150 usually apply.

I saw where someone said something about the doctoral program? I was thinking that this would still be a masters degree? Or maybe this is the last masters class they are offering? Does anyone know?

Good luck everyone!

Afternoon! :) I definitely was under the impression that the DNP was the only option starting in 2018, but I think I will email someone to confirm because - now that I look at Samford's website again - it doesn't make it super clear if the MSN program is ending (that's just what other programs have been doing, so I just assumed). I'll let y'all know what I find out!

I agree that the website isn't very clear. They are still offering MSN for Spring 2018 in addition to the 1st DNP class starting May 2018. If you indicated on the application form AND your resume that you are applying for DNP then you would be considered for DNP, and you would be considered for MSN if that's what you indicated on the online application and your resume. I don't know if they will be asking us for our degree preference during the day of the interview (I am hoping they will)..

Thanks joysedso, BSN, RN! You're correct - I was told something similar when I reached out to my contact. How interesting! I wonder if they are interviewing twice as many people then seeing as there are seats to be filled in both classes? Wouldn't that be nice haha ;)

Hi All!! Any advice and tips on how to prepare for the interview? Does anyone know of someone who interviewed last year? And How was their interview experience?.. I know you've told me its laid back and its get-to-know-you questions but is there going to be clinical questions as well?.. I guess I'm just so nervous and kind of looking for guidance and reassurance....Thanks..
