    Thank you - yeah unfortunately some of those nurses aren't the type to lend a helping hand, so to speak, when I asked about who they shadowed they were really cagey about it all.

    Looking through your posts it looks like you've got into the Lakes doctorate program - congrats! If you know of any working CRNAs in the area that are experienced but are also into teaching/shadowing, I'd really appreciate it.

    Hey guys! I'm an RN, BSN with 2 years SICU experience in a Level II Trauma center in Baton Rouge, LA.

    I will eventually apply to CRNA school down the road, but from my research it seems many practicing CRNAs recommend that those entering the field as much time following/shadowing someone as possible.

    Anybody wanting to take someone eager to learn under their wing - please contact me.

    Thanks in advance

    Hi Everyone!

    This is my first post here on allnurses, by the way. After prowling the internet for answers to many questions I've had recently - several times I was led here and I liked what I read, so I decided to join this community.

    So my situation is, I recently applied to Our Lady of the Lake's BSN program in Baton Rouge, upon dropping off my application I was notified that I had missed the deadline by two weeks and I was told I was suppose to have taken the TEAS test - which I have looked into and the last test date was early January. Nevertheless, I told them I still wanted to submit my application since I had already paid the non-refundable fee, despite the receptionist giving me advice not to.

    Which brings us to now. I have received a letter notifying me that I have been accepted into the fall 2011 BSN program and have been granted "provisional acceptance pending receipt of all required documents."

    I am frightened and full of anxiety because I don't know if that means I am actually accepted or not!? Also, do I still have to take the TEAS test? Or were my grades good enough? Can someone please take this weight off my shoulders

    Thank You!
