View Full Version : Quick Intro
Just a quick message to say hello and introduce myself. I'm a lowly ICU RN and CRNA hopeful who is in the process of checking out different schools. I have only 14 months of experience with 10 months of MICU and the past 4 in the SICU. That makes me half-assed at both, really. I'm currently studying for my CCRN and will be applying to programs along the way with the bulk of them coming this fall. I'm in Denver right now and will have to move somewhere out of state to make this happen. Being single helps since I have no wife or kids to make the move with me, which makes me open to moving just about anywhere. If you all don't mind I'll be here soaking knowledge from all of you, hoping to contribute more later as I actually learn some things I can pass along to other fledgling wannabes. A big thank you to Methane Man who introduced me to this site. His stealth mode PM at allnazis.com was what brought me here.
Happy gas, everyone.

keep the effort going so we can liberate the slaves to "the man" Brian over there who makes a fortune off of them.
Oh and lets not forget Brian's very own Himmler "NurseKaren"

Congratulations on making it out alive, Aero...you are now in the green zone. By the way, I have been unable to even access the allnazis website since my infiltration of their feeble webaddress filter system.

There are 3 programs within a 1 hour radius in Ohio. University of Akron, Case Western, and Youngstown. Akron seems to take a special liking to the out of town prospects b/c many crnas in this area feel we are pumping out too many students in an already saturated area. Interviews are in October for Akron, Dec for case and Jan for Youngstown. I have all of the information on U of Akron. If you are seriously interested, let me know and i will hook you up. Julie

Plenty of programs in the Philly area too. Get your apps in early though b/c they are filling up a couple of years in advance.

I wouldn't necessarily agree with Akron liking the out of towners. They really push for candidates to have started the core classes. I don't know anyone that's in the program that hasn't taken any of these classes.

Lately there have been a number without any classes, especially the out of towner varitey.

Fill me in on what you all mean by core classes? Are these the MSN classes like statistics and stuff like that? The instructors at UNLV said there were only a few MS classes you can take without have 1 yr RN experience.

yah core classes for MSN are classes like Informatics, Health Policy, Advanced Pharm, Role of the APN etc etc
Thanks for the welcome and tips everyone. I'll definitely look at Akron in addition to Villanova and Western Carolina. Any tips you can provide on those are helpful and appreciated, particularly on how to afford out of state tuition for those state schools not based in Colorado. :eek5:

You know, Texas Wesleyan has two clinical sites in Denver. Their program is front loaded, then you go to your primary clinical site for the last 16 months. Don't know if they have shown up on your radar or not. PM me if you have any questions.

I recently moved from Denver to start anesthesia school out here in Erie, PA. I would be glad to provide any info on my hunt and decision process from a Colorado perspective...

Julie..are you in the UA program? What do you know about the program and likewise with Case? Or if anyone can help. Thanks

Yes, I was and have since graduated. Our program does push for core classes to be started, but not required. We like to be a front loaded in the fact that our director likes us to have the time to concentrate solely on anesthesia at the clinical sites. Case , only from my opinion does things quite differently, classes concurrentyl with clinicals. Both have their advantages and disadvantages. If you need more specifics, please dont hestiate to ask.
