Nope. No point.
Don't waste your time or money doing a different masters. Get into an ICU and do overtime rather than extra school. This will get you more experience and money for school. Study for your CCRN.
How did it go?
When will you apply?
Started anesthesia school at 35.
I am in anesthesia school now. It was my goal long before nursing. I learned about it working as a pharmacy technician in the OR.
Kaplan review course.
Did you call or email to verify your completed application made it to them?
I am a SRNA myself right now. Been the dream for about a decade now. I researched the heck out of it and I am glad to have been blessed to get in a school. If it is your dream make it happen.
Hi nurseaprilo. I am in Jonesboro AR in the Arkansas State University program. I will likely see you here.
Why did you drop? Why were there problems between you and your PD? I know you may not want to post this online (understandable) but it us hard for us to give advice without knowing. I would recommend calling schools, explaining what happened and see how they feel about it. You may have to call every school, but it shows initiative and may be worth it. As you know crna school is very competitive and you are not likely to find a program that will take you that is desirable (less attractive program that has a harder time recruiting might be your goal).
Programs do not want a student who may drop, and even if you don't want to do that again they do not know you. All they have to go off of is that you previously dropped out and your previous PD won't recommend you.
So call every school, shadow, and see if you can get good recommendations from CRNAs. Good luck.
The only draw back is I have minimal swan experience. I think you are more likely to get on with SICU but if you interview well and have decent gpa, recommendations, etc you will get in whether your experience is neuro or some other ICU. I say stick with it (neuro) and apply.
I am in CRNA school right now. I have 4 years of trauma I neuro. Having said that I am the only one in my class that was a neuro nurse. You should be fine.
What hospital are you at?
I am currently in the program. Send me a PM. I would recommend the program by the way. I am excited to be here.
