Trying to decide on Program in Ohio!

  1. Hey everyone!

    I've been looking on this site a lot for information about nurse anesthesia schools and it has been very helpful, and I hope some of you will be able to help me further!

    I am looking into CRNA programs in Ohio and wanted to find out some more information about Akron vs. Cinci vs. Case Western.

    I'm interested in how you like the program (if you're in one of these schools), how the interview went (clinical vs personal questions) and any negatives about the programs.

    Thanks so much!

    I don't know what type of information you're looking for other than interview tips. But if you wanted information regarding tuition, number of students admitted, requirements, etc you can go to all-crna-schools.com

    I'm a student at Case and I like the program. The interview was fairly easy; minimal clinical questions. Nothing like the Akron interview, from what I hear (I did not apply to Akron).

    It seems like the students at Case are happy overall; but it depends a lot on your clinical site. They have clinicals at CCF, UH, and Summa. The happiest students seem to be at Summa, then CCF, then UH, for the most part.

    The classes are not too hard, and they actually tell us that nobody has ever failed academically (if people get kicked out it is because of clinical issues). Don't get me wrong, it's a lot of work, but not as bad as everyone makes it seem.

    PM me if you want any other specific details. Good luck!

    MoLee,
    I am very interested in the Case Program. For some reason I cannot PM you, but I would love to talk to a current student. You can only find out so much from their site and talking to admissions. E-mail me a r2410s@gmail.com if you are willing to talk. Thanks!
