St Elizabeth's/YSU CRNA Fall 2014

  1. 0
    I have recently been accepted to St E's/YSU class starting in the August of 2014. I was wondering if any one else was starting as well, and how they like the area?

    What was your main issue with the program, because I'm friends with two people currently enrolled and have nothing but positive things to say about it?

    The area is very poor economically and has always had a very high crime and murder rate. It's unfortunately a forgotten steel town that has very little to offer culturally or in the way of enjoying yourself outside of work / school.

    I live in Youngstown and I must disagree. Yes there was a time when it was "just a forgotten steel town" but downtown is being revitalized! Businesses are opening up everywhere! Sure there are a couple bad areas, especially on the south and east sides but downtown and the North side are much better than they were.
    There are plenty of things to do outside of school and work. See a show or game at the Covelli Centre, see the symphony at the old Powers auditorium, visit one of the awesome restaurants such as V2 wine bar and Susie's Dogs and Drafts! Take a look at the Arms museum. And take a drive or hike through the pride of the area: Mill Creek Park!

    First off congrats, getting into school is a huge accomplishment!!!!

    I always try to respect others opinions but let me put a Youngstown spin on things. I work at St E's in the cvicu and though I have elected to go to a different crna school I can tell you a few things about their program. IT'S Hard, but so is every other crna school out there. I don't believe any are for the faint of heart and they definitely aren't going to baby you. The staff will drill you because they expect a lot. This isn't a profession where you can afford to know the bare minimum. I have heard the added stress can get to you and some of it is unnecessary if you get on someone's bad side. However that's all hearsay and I can't verify that. All I've ever see when they come to drop off our hearts & vasculars is normal teacher / student interactions but things in the O.R, stay in the O.R. The faster you realize that the better! You will get to see just about everything though. Trauma, Neuro, hearts, ortho, etc types of surgeries are done the daily. Once you get done with your ysu portion of the curriculum you will be at the hospital full time, i.e 5+ days a week. By the time you graduate your #of anesthetic cases will be through the roof. I have a friend in the program now and two that I know of that will be in your class for sure for fall 14'.there are still a couple buddies of mine that are still interviewing and they are all cool people . If you have any other questions, send me a P.M

    As a graduate of this very program I say it's not for the faint of heart! If you study and live and breathe anesthesia you will make it! When you graduate you will be confident that you can walk into Amy OR anywhere and provide safe anesthesia well! Good luck
