Philadelphia is known as the City of Brotherly Love and is the 6th largest city in the United States.  In the past two decades, the City government and universities have invested a lot to revitalize the area.  They especially focused on the City Center and University City.  As a result, if you visit today, you’ll see a lot of new commercial and residential buildings.  Above all, if you are looking for CRNA Schools in Philadelphia, there are three credited CRNA schools in Philadelphia.  These Philadelphia CRNA Schools are UPenn CRNA, Jefferson CRNA Program and Drexel CRNA.  These are three of the top CRNA programs in the country.  Furthermore, they are all located in downtown Philadelphia with good public transportation and low crime rates.  Finally, the great thing is all 3 CRNA schools are 15 minutes talking distance from each other.
