Facing rejection can be extremely intimidating as you’re applying to CRNA school, but rejection does not mean the end of YOUR road! Today, we are joined by SRNA, Mike, who has faced 12 rejections himself, pushed on, gained acceptance to CRNA school, and is well on his way! 

Calling upon your grit and perseverance will set the stage for success, helping you gain acceptance and make your dream a reality.

In today’s episode, we’ll be diving into: 

  • What 12 rejections has taught Mike, and what lessons he hopes to pass on to future CRNA school applicants 

  • How to create a support system that nurtures your mindset and keeps you in the game (even in the face of rejection)

  • The importance of finding a school that’s a good fit for YOU (and not just the other way around) 

  • Best methods of self-reflection and asking for feedback, as well as valuable resources available to you for creating a game plan moving forward

  • Some new perspectives in regard to rejection that will help you reframe your thinking (and kick some of the stress to the curb!)

Happy applying, future CRNA! You’ve got this, and we’ve got you!

  1. It was great listening to the perseverance involved here. I didn’t know some schools may not consider your application after 1 or 2 attempts even though they don’t announce that, and they may say ‘apply unlimited times here.’ Thanks!
