Just a brief background on myself, I will (with all going according to plan) be graduating with an ADN this summer and plan to follow immediately with earning a BSN. Have good grades, motivated and considering a few directions for my focus (specialty) in nursing.
My choices I'm debating as far as "what to go for" are 1. CRNA 2. DNP Executive Administrator 3. CNP/Psychiatric
I'm wondering things like, how competitive are these areas, including graduate schools and then even undergraduate work. For instance I know that if I wanted to pursue earning a CRNA license I would have to have min. 1.5 years of critical care experience to even be a candidate for a graduate program. I am more confused about the outlook and process of the other two (Administrator vs. Psychiatric) and can't really find much information in the steps to take, or how many enter these areas of specialty.
Basically, I'm sure this is a very broad topic and some one may have some insight into one of the areas mentioned but not all- any help, insight or resources you may have would be SOOOO APPRECIATED! Thanks, Rachelle SN-MTC.
