    I love my program, although I kind of wish I got to go into the clinical aspects of it earlier. Oh well. For a better idea, read my blog.

    GPA: 3.68

    MAT score: 65

    ICU experience: 2 years

    Undergrad: Northern Illinois University

    Anesthesia Program: Bradley University/DMH

    Satisfaction: I couldn't agree with nilepoc more. I have to wait a year before the clinical phase begins. It can be frustrating. I start clinicals in July. Read nilepoc's blog, it's very good.

    Good luck!

    I just started school at University of South Carolina. We begin clinicals next week. I think I will enjoy having the clinicals integrated into the didactic. So far, I really like the school. The program is based out of the School of Medicine and is very science based compared to some others I researched and the best part is no thesis!

    I'm considering going to a smaller hospital after graduation. 10-12 bed ICU/132 bed total. Do you think it would affect my chances of getting into a school? I hate the thought of staying in the urban phoenix area.

    Thanks,

    Working at a small hospital will not help your chances! But not everyone can work at big sophisticated places.
  12. by   kkrnkk
    Of course working at a big hospital is best because you can get more experience with all the technology available at such facilities. But, obviously that opportunity is not available to everyone. I was told that the experience is a great asset, but not the only thing they look at. They look for "well-rounded" individuals who not only meet the basic requirements, but also have other things to offer as well. If you have to work in a smaller hospital, I would suggest being very involved in your community and at the hospital as well as attending as many as possible continuing education actiivities to keep you up to date on current technology and trends in healthcare. Just my two cents....

    wow! thoses scores are pretty high. i guess i need to buckle down my bsn gpa to even have a chance of gaining acceptance to a program. how about entering a program with only one year of experience? do u think a person would only be hurting themselve entering a program with such little experience?
