Hello everyone! I just have been getting ahead of myself but decided to start this thread for people looking to apply to University of Maryland's CRNA program for the Summer of 2021. I have been very nervous but excited. CRNA school has always been the goal so crossing my fingers and wishing everyone looking to apply lots of luck! We got this 🙂

In the meantime, feel free to keep me company here as I wait 6 months for applications to even be due.

I’ve been accepted to the program and will start in June. All the professors and the director seemed super awesome in the interview. Best of luck!

That is so exciting!! Any tips? I really want to get in and just don't know the chances of that. What were your stats and do you mind guiding me a bit with mine if you think they aren't the best?

Sure! What are your stats?

I have 3.7 overall & 4.0 science GPA. 3 years shock trauma ICU in level 1 trauma center. Charge nurse, preceptor, committee work, community service, CCRN, TCRN, ACLS, PALS. I got into a few with those stats but UMD was definitely my first pick and I think they could tell!

That's awesome! You sound like an amazing applicant 🙂

I have 4.0 overall and science GPA. 1.5 years in a CCU and coming up on 1 yr in a large CVSICU. Mentor, committee work, research experience, community service, and AACN member. I have my CCRN, PALS, ACLS, and BLS.

Do you mind sharing what other programs you had gotten into? UMD is my first choice as well but I read the other forums and know it is extremely competitive and your round had a record number of applicants.

I'm planning on applying to U of Maryland too. I agree that you sound like an amazing applicant! My overall GPA is a 3.6 but I wasn't as serious as I should have been about my prerequisites for nursing school and science GPA is only around a 3.3... I'm really hoping I can get into school without having to retake a chem/bio/physiology class. I've worked on a MICU/Oncology ICU (one unit with two separate services) for almost 4 years and would like to stay on my unit cause I enjoy it but also know the experience of a CCU/CVICU would be really beneficial.

Thank you! I think you have very unique ICU experience that you should definitely play up. It will help you stand out as a candidate for sure. It couldn’t hurt to email them either just to have your name out there about what they think their accepted applicants’ applications looked like. You got this 🙂
