Fortunately for Region Eight, ASU has the only program in the state.

Unfortunate for those wanting to complete the training,but do not have the clout or money to get into the program.

I have a friend that has been a CNRA for years,and he went to school in Puerto Rico to obtain his degree because there were just not that many schools for CRNA at the time.ASU was just starting the BSN program.
If you can get in and make it,it's a stressful career,but,so is nursing,but,it's worth it.

unfortunately, I think many nurses who go think about the $$$ and forget it requires long hours, lots of call (in general) to make that $$$. Also, ASU is over saturating this area and many people are having to move out of state or to rural areas of the state to find jobs.

Did anyone fail to mention that ASU is way overpriced? They are the most expensive school in this area! I'm going back to schook, and there's no way I'll be attending ASU!

I believe you're right about the $$ incentive.Anesthesia can be demanding and stressful work,and there is a lot of call involved.

I totally agree with you. I attended 2 semesters at ASU and couldnt cover everything even with student loans and did not receive anything even close to an education. I left ASU to go to Lyon's in Batesville. When my daughter graduates this year I will be sending her to Lyon's College. It may be almost as expensive as ASU but at least it gives a quality education.

I heard that was a really good college. Do they offer online coarses? I only went to ASU for a semester. They collect your money, and don't give you any kind of an education. I had a chemistry professor that would rarely show up for class. If we had class just once a week, it was a good week. Of coarse ASU refused to do anything about it or refund our money. We all just dropped out of the class.

university of arkansas college batesville offers online courses. My daughter is trying to get a jump start and has already taken a few of her core classes through there online. Very good pricing for online and since it is an established college in Arkansas you wont have any trouble transferring your credits.
