Texas Wesleyan does a "pseudo" distance...Council on Anesthesia Accreditation won't certify a "true" distance program, but I live in Tallahassee, Florida, and attend Texas Wesleyan full time. We are a clinical site here, and there are similar sites in Cincinatti, Dayton, Louisville, Little Rock, Shreveport, Monroe (LA), Fort Worth (of course), Bryan (TX), Topeka, Wichita, Bismarck and Arrowhead, CA.

We "attend" classes 3-4 days a week in a local classroom, via streaming video. We see them, they see us via camera in our classroom, and we have a polycom speaker through which we communicate.

We have to go to Texas a few times, to fufill the lab portion of our requirements, but it's really not a big deal.

Our classes are recorded on streaming video that if we either have a technical issue with the feed or we need to miss for any reason, we can make it up, or just use it to clarify something we may not have been sure of during lecture.

Check it out. Like any APN program, there's a fair share of BS, but that's anywhere, and I generally find the instructors to be awesome clinicians and effective teachers.

congrats!!!
