    One thing that is reassuring is that the Council on Accreditation gave Scranton the full 10 years of accreditation in Oct 2012.

    Congrats to you also Rhino, I am feeling left out bc I haven't gotten my phone call yet....but I received my letter of acceptance yesterday also and it says the same contingency thing. But I looked through that link posted and they have their 10 yr accreditation already. My guess is that since they are the sole provider of anesthesia now, they are modifying clinical structure maybe. If you call on Monday Rhino, can you update us? Thanks guys and congrats to you all.

    I was thinking of taking a couple of non anesthesia nursing classes over the summer through university of pheonix to lighten the course load. I hear that those extra courses are a pain during school.

    I took one course at scranton and one course at another school where I had been accepted already (dont think it will transfer), just make sure they will transfer. It is a good idea. I would like to take a research course but idk where one is being offered that will transfer.

    After this quarter, I am actually one quarter away from being done with my Masters of Nursing from the University of Washington. I should be able to transfer my Research I and II for the second year in anesthesia school. So Yea, dwgg, it would help a lot if you get some of those classes out of the way.

    Ok, so the accreditation will be final in august. They said there should not be a problem because the program structure is not changing. This fall, class may still be held at the hospital (where the interview took place). Overall they are confident the accreditation will go through, especially because they had the 10 yr accreditation granted last year. They only need to be re-accredited because they are technically a "new" program being the sole provider.

    Hello All...I recently found this conversation and I too have been accepted to Scranton. I appreciate all the info you answered a lot of my questions. I am excited about starting this Aug! If I may ask...what is everyone doing about living situations. I live and work in the Lehigh Valley and was hoping to stay there. Any thoughts? Anyone know the progression of the program or what they suggest would work?

    I just found out from the director of graduate nursing that you can only transfer 3 credits for the NA program. Hope u can transfer those research credits CVICURN22.
