Small town CRNA School

  1. Hi guys. I'm getting closer and closer to applying to CRNA school. I was hoping for some insight. What are some schools that are:

    Located in a small town
    Low Cost of Living
    Maybe but not a deal breaker small class.
    Im open to most states and cities. I want to leave my home state of Texas but willing to stay. The ones in Texas for most part are either ineligible for me because they're a military school or located smack dab in the middle of Houston (definitely FAR from a small town)

    Any recommendations?

    University of St. Francis in Fort Wayne, IN is opening a new program this year as is Marian in Indianapolis.

    Indiana has a generally low cost of living, and Indianapolis is less than a million people and easy to get around in.

    Perhaps check out Franciscan Skemp in Wisconsin, very inexpensive and a small class size. Pennsylvania also has some programs that match your criteria.

    Yes! I was browsing schools and saw both of those, thanks ICUman
    I found a college in St. Louis with a class size of six.

    I got accepted to the University of St. Francis in Fort Wayne. The director of USF program used to work for the University of Miami. I had an interview for both programs (USF and UM). They were identical. Cost of living in Fort Wayne is cheap. I mean really cheap. It was a deal breaker.

    Bryan College of Health Sciences in Lincoln NE. You'll have an opportunity for clinical rotations in small towns, and all CRNA practices.

    Is this where you attended the CRNA program? If so how was the program? This is where I am planning on getting my BSN as well as my CRNA..

    I'm new on here! I meant to quote this for the reply in my comment I had already made but again.. Is this the school you attended for the CRNA program? If so, how was the program? This is where I am planning on getting my BSN as well as my CRNA

    I'm faculty at the Bryan Program. I think we have a great program, and Lincoln is a great small city. Bryan has had a CRNA program since 1968 and we have a DNAP program now-first grads this past May. We're integrated, meaning courses continue throughout the program. This gives faculty an opportunity to discuss with students what the student is observing in their clinical experiences. The BSN program is rigorous and will give you a good basis for advanced practice roles.
