    Quote from wtbcrna
    I think there is enough evidence to suggest there will be plenty of jobs and job growth in the CRNA profession. There isn't a need to fear coming into the CRNA profession, but where this comes a problem is when someone wants to become a CRNA and will only accept a position in one demographic area. There are many regions of the country that are saturated with anesthesia providers, and it will be hard to find a decent salary as new graduate in those areas.
    Glad to see validation on this point as this is exactly what I'm gathering from the RAND studies.

    I read over that study earlier as well and my take away is if one is willing to move to certain locations, there will be a job!

    Coming from a patient perspective at the Mayo in Scottsdale... I can also attest to the 'lesser than' quality at some of the out state clinics. That would be great to standardize the care across all campuses, I really hope the initiative works out!

    Yep I'm working too. So ready to just do this already!! I've heard and anticipated it all now let's experience it for ourselves!

    That's good to know. I'm 6 months new to the area too and am starting at NHCC next week- I had no idea what it's reputation is but that's promising to hear! They just completed the new nursing building so I'm stoked to see it!

    Yes if you have a BSN you're eligible to apply for FNP which can either be via a Masters or Doctorate program depending on the school.

    So at this point I'm thinking metro seems the most efficient as all RN to BSN programs I've seen require an RN license, etc; which would set the start time back at least one semester whereas Metro's BSN would start immediately in semester 4.

    Thanks for sharing!! I guess it's definitely worth looking at other options then.

    I completely agree!! I wish we had more of an idea of the format for the program (mostly online, in class, commitment)... or maybe I'm just missing it. The MANE representative at orientation gave me the impression it's going to be pretty time consuming as she made a statement advising against taking the nclex right after we graduate and then start spring BSN classes. That's my plan though so you're right, we will see!

    Yeah that sounds a bit crazy. Ours is only Monday through Friday but pretty full days. It's also a three semester RN and then remaining three for BSN. Hello to crockpot meals and take out for the hubby and I!

    Hi! So does anyone know the situation with our clinicals (NHCC)? They are scheduled out for Thursday and Friday 7-3 but she said it doesn't start right away? Or did I misinterpret that? Also we will or will not have clinicals on both of those days?

    I haven't decided yet but I will say the cost of tuition is blow me away affordable. $300 + some per credit at a bachelors level is hard to be beat.

    Quote from BlueDevil, DNP
    Nothing about this is correct, generalizing aside.
    I have never had any student debt of any kind. Even my DNP was free, I was a University Merit Scholar at Duke. I will earn over $180,000 this year.
    The average medical student owes $250-300,000 upon graduation.
    There is no way to compare physician salary to any APN salary. As per my example, different situations are going to work out better for different people.
    However, your little "summary" above is completely nonsensical in just about every instance.
    Im sorry I should have clarified this is for the state of Minnesota and many schools I've looked at in the Midwest. We are not all university scholar merits so that definitely isn't "the norm" either so yes different situations for different people is right.

    So no my "little summary" is quite sensical in actually many schools across the Midwest. I can list the links if that's what needs to be.
