Greetings, I am a high school senior interested in pursuing a Biology major. I have noticed that most Nurse Anesthesia Graduate Schools list a BSN, MSN or an “equivalent major” as a requirement for acceptance. What is your... Read More
- 0Nov 9, '05 by megbooI am interested in switching careers (am considering med school OR nursing with intent to become CRNA) -
I have a B.S. and M.S. in speech pathology (an allied health). I have yet to take Organic and Physics (in the event I decide to take the MCAT) but am beginning to look at other avenues (i.e. CRNA!). I just turned 29, and am not so sure I want to spend the next 10-15 years in med school/residency!
If I decided to pursue the CRNA route, I know I would need an RN degree - would I really need a BSN as well? Or, would it be best to find an accelerated BSN program and try to get in?
I'm taking a year's leave from school (getting married in a few weeks and will need to work to pay the bills!), so I have plenty of time to think about my options - I just need some directive advice from those who are already CRNAs or in the process of becoming one
- 0Nov 16, '05 by troybI just completed my b.s. in biology and am starting an a.d.n program in january. like everyone elsehere, am trying to put myself in a position to put a great application out to some crna programs in a couple of years. If i could do it all over again i would have went with a traditional bsn program and tried to mix in some orgo and physics along the way. the reason i say this is that you will have to take some really hard bio classes that will serve you no purpose in life, i.e. limnology, invertebrate zoology, ecology, plant form and function just to name a few :angryfire . i think that the only classes that will help me get into crna school were things like genetics, physics, chem, orgo, a/p, immunology, histology. every college has there weird bio classes that you have to take to meet the degree reqs. bro if you know this is what you want to do, go with the bsn.
