my ICU professor who works at the U of U hospital in their ER says that CRNA programs really like Utah Nurses, especially from the U of U. Also, a benefit to the critical care new grad residency at the U of U is that you get the opportunity to rotate through all of their ICU's, including their burn/trauma. The only downside is that you have to sign a 2 year contract, which may or may not be good, depending on how long you want to wait to go to CRNA school, and I'm assuming you do from your username.

The nice thing is, you need at least 1-2 years experience to get into most CRNA programs anyway, so a 2-year contract isn't really a problem in that case.

Very smart advice. I've heard that's a good way to go when applying for any ICU program/internship/position.
