CRNA School with Shelbi Smith, BSN, RN, CCRN

Get the inside scoop of what it takes and exactly what it is like to be in CRNA school. We discuss the interview process, work/life balance, finding the right program, tips on amplifying your application, necessary experience, the importance of the GRE/certification in your field, what a shadow day consists of and what her first intubation was like. We then go into some of Shelbi’s most important lessons of being an ICU nurse, her worst days, some of her best days and what it is like to treat someone that is in the dying process-a very important and tough clinical skill to learn.  Student’s ask questions in this info packed session!
Shelbi earned her ADN from HACC in 2003 and then her BSN from California  University of PA in 2016. She is certified as a CCRN and while working  at Penn State Hershey was on the clinical ladder as a clinical ladder IV. Her first job was at Holy Spirit Hospital MICU from 2003-2006 and then  worked for Hershey Med in the Neuro ICU from 2006-2019. She has served as a preceptor, charge nurse and was involved in several councils including quality of worklife, practice council and nursing professional practice council. She is also a former board member of the regional AACN Chapter, The Susquehanna Valley Chapter of  the AACN. She is one of the best ICU nurses I have ever learned from and  is one of the reasons I am so detailed oriented in my care.  She is now a student (CRNA/DNP) at York College of PA.
