    Congrats on completing your first semester! I am just completing the RN to BSN (will be finished in June). I then have to take organic chemistry in the fall but Wolford said I could apply before completing that class. I have the GRE scheduled for the end of August but will probably move to end of July so I can apply for the Spring semester. I have been an ICU nurse for almost 8 years now! The first 2.5 years were spent in a smaller hospital in a medical ICU. I was then a travel nurse for about 4 years and worked in various settings including medical, surgical, surgical/trauma, and neuro ICUs. I now work in a surgical ICU at a university hospital. My overall GPA is 3.88, 8 years ICU experience, and ACLS. I am wondering what the turn around time was for Wolford to receive your GRE results after you took the exam and how soon before they contacted your for interview. The spring deadline is October and I am cutting this really close! Any advice would be great!

    It was about 3-4 weeks before the contacted me for an interview. It may be less if the starting semester you are applying for is sooner rather than later. Congratulations on all of your nursing experience!

    This may have been asked but are there older students in the program. Say, in their 50's?

    We have two ladies in my class that are in their 40's. I know the class behind me has a guy who is probably close to 50 if not older. Most of the students are on their early 30's and a handful of us are in our 20's.

    Absolutely! My friend has a 2 year old son. My other friend has a 12 year old daughter. Some of the Mormon students have many more.

    Thanks I have three but I'm just about to start nursing school. I didn't know if I'm crazy to pursue becoming a CRNA.
