Typing service?

Specialties CRNA

Published

A friend of mine thought it would be a good idea to have my apps typed up through a typing service instead of hand writing them. Did anyone else do this? Do you think it is necessary? Any idea of the cost? Thanks again.

Make sure you read the application's directions carefully as some may state: "In your own handwriting...." This is where you explain your desire to be a CRNA. It's used to assess neatness, etc... We've had several applications where applicants type this. It irritates me to no end that directions were not followed. CRNAs need to be meticulous and pay attention to details and if you can't do this one simple thing....well....

I applied to 4 programs for 2005. None required handwriting. I scanned all applications into pagemaker and filled my application from within pagemaker. It makes for a very professional presentation. It takes alot more time but it's worth it. My way of thinking was to have as close as possible to perfection. I applied to one program for 2004 and did not get in. After assessing my situation, I decided that nothing short of an "A+" effort would do. I'm happy to say that an A+ effort is allowing me to begin school in August. You are endearvoring into a very competitive environment. Whatever you do, I advise striving for perfection. At a minimum, I would type. Good luck!

Handwriting conveys to the person reading it a sense of individualism and personality if pulled off correctly. Typing on a form is tacky and lacks individuality. Just my two cents. Your resume is the time to shine / standout with various typewritting computer programs.
