CRNA Job Shadow Dayton, OH

  1. Hello Everyone,

    I am a nursing student in Dayon, OH, and I am looking for an opportunity to job shadow a willing CRNA. I have contacted the local hospitals for information on where to begin; however, I have been informed that I am to locate a CRNA on my own. This thread is an attempt to locate a CRNA, or anyone who knows a CRNA, who can help me gain some shadowing hours.

    Thank you in advance to anyone who is able to respond. I greatly appreciate your time.

    Have you tried calling any outpatient surgery centers? Call Miami Valley Hospital it's a teaching hospital they may be able to set you up with something

    Here's a link to the practice that services MVH. I worked at MVH for 8 years. . there is a CRNA there that is incredible. . he would be GREAT to work with if you can find him. His name is Bob (can't remember his last night). He worked night shift. . he was a Respiratory Therapist, that turned RN, then CRNA. He was GREAT (not only was he great to work with, but he took care of me when I had my c-section)! Good luck!!

    Hi Shaun
    Was wondering if you found any CRNA's to shadow?? I work at Grandview Hospital and we have several that love having shadowers (is that even a word?? LOL)
    Curious, where and when are you thinking of applying?

    Hi Myra,

    Sorry for the delay in getting back with you... has been a busy quarter. I would be very interested in meeting with the CRNA's you've mentioned. I am looking to start shadowing here after this weekend, or prior if the opportunity arises. I assume a great deal of people will be away for the holiday, though. I am very interested in speaking with you further, if you're available. Thanks again for the reply.

    I was interested in CRNA shadowing opportunities too and was wondering if you are okay with me calling that number. I know this post was in 2011 but fingers crossed you are still there!
