Hi everyone! It has been a while here again with no posts. I plan on applying to Scranton this coming app period. Here is my deal: RN l/d for two years going on 3; at the same time started ICU last summer. I figure by time of app I will have 1.5 yrs in ICU and over 2 yrs by the program start time. I'm part time but work about 30 hrs/wk. Should I do CCRN first? Did any of you who got accepted? I have the other credentials. I also did my first of 2 undergrads at Scranton. High gpa s both times. I'm currently taking Chem 2 this semester at the U. (And it's not coming easy) Are the crna classes heavily Chem laiden? Or more like 'nursing school chem'? Unrelated, for those of you in the program now I know it's all year round ... But are there any holiday breaks, spring break, any time off in summer or ever at all? Thanks in advance.

It is a requirement to have full time intensive care experience.

Perhaps, but it is very vague on the website. Copied from Scranton page:

"In addition to the requirements previously listed for graduate study in nursing, nurse anesthesia applicants must also have a minimum of one year of recent critical care nursing experience, current Advanced Cardiac Life Support (ACLS) certification, current Pediatric Advanced Life Support (PALS) certification, and have completed two courses in college chemistry."

Anyway, I have time to take care of my employment status. Rhino, (or anyone else) can you please shed some light on the typical schedule? Thanks!

Hey Obizyanka,

it doesn't hurt to go ahead and apply to the program but I would suggest fully working full time in the ICU as compared to part time. It will show ur full dedication to critical care in my opinion. And if you can do the CCRN too that's a plus on your application. The schedule is changing from what we are experiencing but I can tell you it will be busy and you will get good experience but you have to be willing to put in the time and effort into your own learning.

That said, let us know if you have any other questions.

Hey peeps - this class should be graduating now and I'd like to get the skinny on the program from vets. Do I need to steer clear of this program? Did you have a good experience, learn what was needed? What is your overall thoughts on the matter- a list of pros/cons maybe. I'm trying to decide where to apply and I'd love some feedback on Scranton.
