Med school after nursing?

  1. Hey I've been thinking a lot about where I want my education to go, and I

    was wondering if I could get some feedback from some of you. I'm definetly

    going to get my BSN. I may decide thats as far as I want to go and stop

    there, but I'm keeping my options open. I was thinking about CRNA school,

    but when I looked at MUSC's requirements, they say you need 2 years min.

    critical care experience. Is this the norm, I thought most schools only

    required one? I've also been thinking about med school, the requirements for

    that at MUSC were about 90 credit hour . It looks like about the same time

    frame after I get my BSN, to go for either CRNA or to med school, once you

    add in the two years experience for CRNA school. I Does this sound right? Or

    did I misread something? I guess my question is has anyone went from

    nursing to med school? I don't really want be out of work for more than a

    few years, that's why I'm going to an ADN program. What do some of you

    think?

    Thanks Brandon

    Hey Brandon,

    I too am thinking of medical school after nursing school. Here is an interesting forum for you to check out: http://forums.studentdoctor.net/index.php?

    Since you are younger, what about just going straight to med school? Money?

    I'd say re-assess your situation after you complete the ADN and commence the BSN. Program requirements change over time, as will your situation / perspective / life goals.

    Good luck!

    Thanks for the link hopegirl, I have a good job now (two more weeks to go) making really good money and I want to get back in the work force as soon as possible as a nurse. Then continue my education while I work. Also, thanks Larry, ultimately that's what I'll do. I've just been giving it a lot of thought lately. I should have looked a little better, I found another thread with some good info in it that was recently posted.
