Some questions

  1. Hi.

    Today I have some questions. Would you please answer my questions?

    Firstly, I hope to enter the undergraduate school to increase my last GPA (though I have a BSN), so do I go into the school by transfer? What grade can I get in? I know the school set the minimum GPA for transfer students, do they consider the student's job experiences?

    secondly, when CRNAs usually retire? I wonder how long I can work as a CRNA after graduation from CRNA school.
    I look forward to hearing from you.
    Thanks.....

    I don't know how applicable my advice is to Korean educational systems, but......

    I went back as a non-degree student. As a non-degree student, I was able to take any class I wanted and not worry about pesky pre-reqs. They did want my transcripts, but they were not weighed in their admission decision, since I like you have a BSN. Also, as a non-degree student, I had no class ranking, which facilitated taking any class I wanted as stated earlier. Over here, Most schools are just glad to get your money, and will let you in with any GPA, if you already have a degree.
    secondly, when CRNAs usually retire? I wonder how long I can work as a CRNA after graduation from CRNA school.
    I can't tell you what average retirement age is, but I can tell you that at my hospital we just had a woman who was 68 retire form a long career as a CRNA. I have heard that there is going to be a shortage of CRNA's in the US in the near future, do to retirement of the current CRNA's.

    Good luck in your quest to become a CRNA.

    I assume by your questions, that Korea uses CRNA's then?

    Thank you nilepoc.
    Yes, in Korea we use CRNA's. As for me, I want to study in the U.S. and hope to work as a CRNA as soon as possible. In fact, fortunately I was trained and worked for about 5years though I don't have a license. The problem is my last grade.
