Spring 2021 University of North Carolina - Charlotte (UNCC)

Posted

Specializes in Neurosurgical Intensive Care. Has 4 years experience.

Hey everyone!

My name is Zac, and I am a Neurosurgical ICU nurse currently working in Charlotte, NC. I was born and raised here but attended Western Carolina University for my BSN degree. I noticed there hasn't been a thread yet created for UNCC's SRNA program applicants for next Spring; so, I wanted to introduce myself to all of you other candidates out there and want to wish all of you the best of luck in attaining interviews and acceptance letters. Introduce yourselves below and let's get to know each other before we [hopefully] begin on this incredibly arduous yet rewarding journey together 🙂

Hey! I have applied to this program and am really excited about it! I haven’t really seen many threads for this school either. Thanks for starting one and good luck!

Awesome! Yes, UNCC has a phenomenal program. A lot of my colleagues have, or are going there to obtain their DNAPs. Good luck to you as well! 🙂

Soooo can we talk about those two weird emails? First I received a rejection letter where none of the suggestion points applied to me... Then I get a subsequent email saying "recall the CMC Anesthesia email".... Did this happen to anyone else?

I haven't received anything yet but that is super weird...

This happened to me. I just received another email stating I wasn't selected for an interview at all.

I got an email around 3:30pm their time saying I got an interview. I’m sorry to those that haven’t heard or didn’t get the news they were hoping for 😞

I still haven't heard anything at all 🤷‍♂️ They did send me an email two days ago stating they would release the decision today though. Maybe I'll hear something tomorrow?

Is there anyone else who hasn't heard back yet? The previous email I received very clearly stated that all decisions would be released "no later than October 9th." Not sure what that means for people such as myself...

I would definitely follow up on Monday.

I for sure am planning to. The first thought that comes to mind is that they didn't receive my application; however, I received not only an email stating they did receive it, but also a phone call confirming they received it. I guess they forgot to send mine, or are in the the process of making a last minute decision?

Either way, I’m hoping for good news for you! Did you apply anywhere else?

Thank you, that is very kind 🙂 This was actually my first time applying for any CRNA school; and seeing as how I am from Charlotte, I just wanted to throw in one application here to see what might happen before I send out apps everywhere else. How about you?

This is my first time as well. I only applied here and USC, just to see how it would go.

Nice! If it doesn't go well for me this time, I will very likely be applying to USC as well. Do you currently work in Charlotte, or a surrounding area?

I’m currently in Myrtle Beach, SC.
