Quote from FL-SRNA
FROM WHAT I understand, the director is a big AA fan-supports FL using AA's...its a big stink in the CRNA political arena....I have heard that they are pushy, rude and obnoxious and like 3-7 yrs exp....just wanted to let you guys hear another opinion....fl schools don't have a good rep...any of them..!
Way off base. I was just accepted to Gooding for the class starting this August. The director, staff, and students were some of the most professional people I have ever met. They also went out of their way to make me feel comfortable on interview day and on the occasions when I called for information.
I also had two years SICU experience, was not from Florida, nor had I ever worked at Bay Medical Center. Furthermore, if the director of the program (who by the way was very personable, professional, and enlightneing) was such a big supporter of AAs wouldn't he be trying to eliminate his own job?
Though all clinical work is completed at Bay Medical Center, all specialties and anesthetic techniques are taught and graduates perform well over 1000 cases each.
