I am from Cleveland, and just interviewed last Tues and found out Sat. What a relief! Where are you coming from? Have you decided where to do your clinicals?

Really? You got a letter that fast? I interviewed in November and have not heard anything. My friend interviewed last Tuesday also and has not heard a thing. What type of unit do you work in?

Yep. I got my letter last Sat. I work in a open heart unit. Where do you work at? What about your friend? How long was her interview?

When I interviewed in Sept my acceptance letter was postmarked 3 days after the interview. For some they decide right away and for the ones that they are unsure about- they wait until they interview the majority of the people- say around Jan/Feb.

Im traveling right now and I work everything between CTICU, trauma ICU, transplant, SICU, MICU and even the burn unit on occasion.

As for clinicals I havent decided between UH and CCF. CCF sounds nice but I heard they pay their CRNAs $60k instead of their usual $120k the first 2 years.

Sounds like Id be losing more than I gain. I have to look into it. Any idea when we need to decide?

CONGRATS!!! I got your PM last week but I am unable to use that option. I can't wait to start. I feel like I have a ton to do before hand. Where are you from?:w00t:

I have many friends that did the CCF clinicals and it isn't true about the pay. You owe them 30 months of service after school and will get paid the starting salary not a reduced rate.

The school will send out a wish list when they start to assign clincal spots. When I shadowed and met up with Sharon and Paul I believe they said the spring is when they send those out.

I got my letter last week. Have not decided yet if I will attend Case Western or go elsewhere. I have to take Stats again in order to attend Case :-( Also all the nursing theory classes do not excite me.

Nursingdude-

where else u thinking of going?

I need to take the stats again too but CWRU is a really great program.

I've also worked at CCF as an agency nurse and know it's in the top 5 favorites hospitals I've been outta 40+

Did you get in elsewhere? All CRNA programs require some kind of stats within a specific amount of time, and they all have theory. Yuck! When do you have to send in your letter of accepting their admission?
