- Oct 26, '08 by MagsMomI have heard great things about the program - the downsides are that it is 22 months and you have to work for some time after the internship is over

- Feb 9, '09 by goodgriefmy 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.

- Apr 24, '09 by nurseman78Very smart advice. I've heard that's a good way to go when applying for any ICU program/internship/position.
