Goals/Applications

  1. Many schools want a personal statement that includes goals. Are these goals for school, after school, long after school ... Anyone willing to throw out some examples or some that seemed to work well or was mentioned during the interview.

    This has come up before so you may want to do a search. But with that said you have to put what you think and what is the truth. You have to be able to explain what you want for your future. Think about it....if you are doing this you should have goals for your future. Do you want to be a practicing CRNA for the long term? Do you want to go into education? Do you want to work in a specific field like pediatrics, trauma anesthesia?

    If you don't have any other goals than to be a CRNA there is nothing wrong with that. The interviewers don't want to hear a bunch of BS.

    I hope i didn't ramble too much, but before you write these things you should really sit down and think about what your goals truly are. Just spend some time and be original.

    To my surprise, my personal statement really mattered in the interview. I think what they want most is your story. What's your deal? Tell them. If you get to the interview part of the process, they just want to learn a little about you and see if you're a good fit for the program. Good time to lay your cards on the table I think.

    First and foremost be honest...they will know ifyou are ********ten'em. They want to know what makes you different from the other guy. What was it that you did while in school that gave you the idea, what edge do you have, what can you bring to the program. A lot fo my essay was about my family. I had kids at a young age and it helped to shape who i am. They want to see who you are beyond test scores and gpa's(Whoch also help if they are high!!).

    Best of luck to you
