Yeah, why are you going to an FNP program if you want to become a CRNA? Most CRNA programs require a BSN, but there are some that will accept students with an ADN and a BS/BA in something else. The cheapest route is usually ADN followed by BSN while working, but it takes longer - which gets expensive if you don't work during school. I'm in an 18 month ABSN program, which means all I have to do is graduate, work in an ICU for a year or two, and I'm ready to apply. My entire program, including books, supplies, and tuition, will cost about $12,000. I'll graduate December of 08, which is a year earlier than I would if I had chosen the local ADN program. I can also focus on learning to be a nurse when I graduate, instead of having to start taking classes towards a BSN. It depends what the different costs are of various levels of colleges in your area, how much time it will take, and how much time you have to devote with school - while people do it, ABSN programs get a lot tougher if you also work and have children. See what programs - ADN, BSN, ABSN, and bridge programs - are in your area, compare the costs of each, and compare the amount of time you'll spend in school and/or waiting for acceptance to each. Then figure out which will best fit your plans and your schedule. Good luck!
