Usually people become ACLS/PALS certified after they've become an RN. It's usually a 2-day-ish program that your hospital pays for. You have enough to worry about just getting through nursing school
- don't try to rush into extra programs.
Also too, I would first focus on getting some experience as an RN before even thinking about requirements for becomming a CRNA. Even when you're done with RN school, there is SOOOO much to learn on the job. I've been working as an RN (BSN) for 8 months now, and I'm so overwhelmed with learning the basics, I'm not even considering which advanced degree I'm going for, for at least 2 years.
And I'm not sure - but don't you need a BSN before going for an advanced nursing degree?
I know the paycheck sounds nice, but CRNA's have a tremendous amount of responsibility - basically that of an anesthesiologist who have years, years of training. You simply need some to time to be confronted with different scenarios, experiences before you can be competent. It's good to know what requirements you need to get to your destination, but take it slow and master the basics first. Good luck to you!
