Following application, candidates' credentials are reviewed, with particular attention to the prerequisites noted on the Entrance Requirements page. Candidates considered "most qualified" will be invited for a personal interview with the selection committee in November. Those not meeting the prerequisites, or who have been denied admission following two previous interviews, may be declined an invitation to interview. Due to limited space availability, even some who meet the prerequisites may not be invited to interview if their qualifications are not among the most competitive. Therefore, applicants who wish to reapply the following year may do so by updating their application.
The Admissions Committee of the Nurse Anesthesia Program review the credentials of each applicant. Final selection is based upon many factors; no single criterion has a decisive influence on the applicant’s acceptability. Selection of candidates for interview or program admission will also be based upon qualities of professionalism and communication with the program during the application and interview process.
Qualified applicants are invited to a yearly interviews (generally held in November). Applications for each academic year must be received by October 1 of the preceding year in order to be screened and interviewed. Final selections for the program are made by January for admission in August.
