The upperclass students advised new SRNAs to remain "under the radar" of school faculty at my school. Who is the COA going to beleive: school faculty or the student? Likewise, the COA doesn't regulate clinical behavior of staff CRNAs and MDA. That's where I experienced my hazing treatment
So, in other words you did not try to contact the COA and make a report. You, as a student, are customer for the school. Clinical sites have to meet certain requirements too, and clinical sites can be removed. One of the biggest reasons that there are so many nurse anesthesia schools
is that SRNAs are virtual "cash cows" for these universities and the hospitals. It is in the university's best interest to accept as many students as possible, and in the best interest of the hospitals to have as many SRNAs as possible doing clinicals to reduce the amount of paid anesthesia staff.
Mountain State University was closed d/t accreditation issues r/t lawsuits and COA complaints. The COA seems to take complaints very seriously, but one student's version of hazing may not be considered hazing by other people. You need to be objective and factual in your complaints.
