Acute care experienceRegister Today!
- by amber2brnbsnmsncrna Feb 17Am I able to do my acute care experience while in school for bsn or after. Or does clinicals count as experience?
- Feb 17 by Sun0408Clinicals do not count. Many CRNA programs want 1-2 years acute care experience in an ICU type area. If you are already an RN, you can work if your school schedule allows the time.
- Feb 17 by MeTheRNIf you already have your associates and work in an ICU while getting your BSN, that counts towards CRNA school. Clinicals and practicum however do not count.
- Feb 18 by wtbcrnaThis is how COA interprets acute care experience.
"Acute Care Experience: Work experience during which an RN has developed as anindependent decision-maker capable of using and interpreting advanced monitoring techniquesbased on knowledge of physiological and pharmacological principles. "
