    Hi, I'm currently in a BSN program, and I am aspiring to be a CRNA. I'm just wondering who in this forum went straight to the ICU after graduating, because a lot of nurses I'm working with are telling me to work med-surg first before going to the ICU. I really want to tackle ICU, but is it possible couple of years in med-surg all that necessary?

    Thanx!

    Go straight into the ICU if you want to go into a CRNA program. I went into a 33 bed Medical Surgical Trauma ICU(Stanford) and it was the best decision I ever made. Worked there for four years and I am now starting a CRNA program in Oakland, CA. I knew nothing about nursing but with a lot of hard work, I've learned a great deal.
