Critical Care Experience For CRNA Programs

  1. Hi, I am currently in a bsn program. Ultimate goal is to become a crna. I was just wanting to know, if I were to get a job in a critical care setting as a cna or pct, can that actually count toward my critical care experience for a crna program?

    No, CRNA schools look for experience as a registered nurse in a critical care setting. Good luck!!!

    It will help you get an RN position once you graduate. It will not count as critical care experience.

    Listen to lovesanesthesia, couldn't have said it better myself.

    I was a student nurse in an ICU which opened the door to getting in the ICU immediately after graduating....
