So, I have been accpeted to Thomas Jefferson University and the University of Pennsylvania for CRNA school! Now, the challenge of deciding which program is the best for me and my family...I was wondering if there are students from either program who would be willing to answer a few questions.
-Is TJU really 30 months or is it more like 33-34 when you add breaks between semesters?
-Is UPenn really 24 months or is it more like 26-27 when you add breaks between semesters?
-What type of clinical experience have you had? For example, how many blocks, central lines, etc. have you been able to do?
-Are you guaranteed specialty clinical rotations (Peds, OB, Cardiac, Regional Anesthesia...)?
-How are the classes, do you feel that they are full of a lot of fluff (busy work) that does not apply to anesthesia?
-Finally, if you feel that your program is better than the other, why?
I appreciate any feedback regarding either of these programs. I want to make the best and most informed decision possible. I have a wife and two little boys who are counting on me, and I am realistic enough to understand that this decision will effect them just as much as it does me. Thanks in advance for your help!
