Just wondering how many of you started off from the beginning to become what you are. Who decided later? I'm awaiting acceptance to an ADN program now but I decided at 30yrs. old that I wanted to go into to anethstesia. Anyone willing to share their story or lend any pitfall avoidance insight?
When I considered CRNA as a profession, I was probably 22 years old and in the middle of a Healthcare Management bachelors degree. I only had about a year and a 1/2 left, so I decided to finish and apply to an accelerated 2nd degree nursing program. I graduated this December and applied to nursing school in January. I was accepted and start next month. CRNA school is still a long way down the road, but I know it is what I want to do. I did an internship and shadowed a CRNA last fall and I really enjoyed it. Good luck to you, and if you havent already, I would suggest that you shadow a CRNA to get a better perspective of the field that interests you (Anesthesia).
