I have a few questions about CRNA programs. I notice that most, if not all, of them usually require at least 1-2 years experience in critical care (ICU, etc). However, for each program there are way more people applying than the school can accept. Thus, my question is how many years of experience should one have to be competitive? In other words, in general how many years of experience do people that get into the programs have? Secondly, how much weight do the schools
give for GPA and other academic stuff. Lastly, what else should a nursing student do (while in school) to increase the chances of getting into a CRNA program?
Thanks guys, I really appreciate your responses!
