Hi everyone I am a RN with three years behind me. I have 18 credits left to complete my BSN. I currently work in psyc. I started nursing school
on about 1995. It has been slow going. My goal has remained the same for over seven years. I want to be a CRNA more than anything. I have a few worries. First my GPA will prob only be lower 3s as I didn't understand the importance of doing well in class when I graduated from highschool in 1990. Second I didn't do very well in chemistry, or micro. This is mostly because I didn't know how to learn or study at the time. This has chanced over the last couple of years. Because of my goal to become a CRNA I have forced myself to learn how to learn. I guess I am wondering if I will be given a chance even thou I didn't excel in the past? I am a very good nurse that cares for each and every patient I have contact with. I am planning my transition to ICU in the next year and will prob try to get 2yrs experience before I apply to a CRNA program. Two years isnt so long I have already waited seven and I am getting better at learning all the time. I have always had common sense, it has just taken some time for me gain book smarts. Maybe I should take some more Chemistry and Physics classes to prove I can now do well in these areas. What do you think?? I would love to here from all of you especially an actual CRNA with a few minutes.
