Need some advice!

  1. I have been reading various posts on here stating that Med/Surg experience is very valuable, especially right out of nursing school. I have a 'ways' to go before I finish nursing school, but I already know that I want to eventually become a CRNA. You have to have at least 2yrs ICU experience though. My question is would it be better to go into Med/Surg tech for a year and then into ICU for 2 yrs, and then apply for CRNA school?? Which is the best route to take?? How much will MEd/Surg nursing prepare you for ICU nursing? Or are they similar enough to where it really doesn't matter. I would love to hear from veteran (or non-veteran) nurses! Thanks!

    I would go right away to ICU if they are willing to train a new grad.....

    Find a critical care internship...it will be the best thing you can do for yourself if CRNA is your ultimate goal.
