I am finishing up my first of two summer sessions and then we are off to clinical in the fall! One year down (fingers, eyes, brain - crossed). I was just wondering if current and past students could expand upon the difference between the didactic and clinical section of CRNA school. I am in front loaded program and will be complete with the mostly didactic section in the fall and then will begin 18 months of clinical before graduation. I began last August and have been through one fall, one spring, and now one summer semester- my brain hurts. I have heard some say that clinical, though physically tiring, is more manageable than the classes. I just wanted to get some more opinions about the differences, besides the obvious, between didactic and clinical.
