Second degree bsn needs advice
- 0May 20, '13 by MichellleRocksHello All!
I am graduating this fall with a BS in Rehabilitation Services. Currently looking for second degree or accelerated programs and would like some input. My long term goal is to become a CRNA. Currently living in PA. One year experience as a CNA.
Cum GPA: 3.35
Science GPA: 2.85
NLN-PAX Overall Score: 121
Any suggestions on schools I should consider?
- 0May 21, '13 by cardiacrocksWhich part of PA are you living in? Are you near Penn state at all? That would be a great school to attend. Also, If your long term goal is to become a CRNA, you need to get those science grades up, they aren't bad, but they look at physics and A&P and chemistry and all that stuff. You also need to have at least 1 year but possibly 3-5 in a CCICU before you can apply to CRNA school. I curious why do you want to be a CRNA, have you shadowed one? Good luck, it's going to be quite a ride.

There are several campuses that have the accelerated program and it's basically a very expensive but only 12 month intense program. We had 24 hours a week, usually 2 12s as well as 3-4 days a week of all day class. Good education, but pretty expensive.
