Hello, all! I am new to this forum, new to nursing in general, and still trying to figure out where to post, so bear with me if you see duplicates. This site has been a tremendous tool in garnering different perspectives about... Read More

    *** UVA's masters entry program requires a bachelors degree to apply. So it's not a case of a person who don't have a bachelors degree, but does have a masters degree, applying to their CRNA school.
    That's is the schools choice, but I would still ask admissions committee directly.

    *** Oh no, you are not agreeing with me. I have not blown anything out of proportion. I passed on information that is listed on the AANA's web site. You corrected me. I said thanks very much I am happy to stand corrected and that was that. It is you who insisted on falsely putting words in my mouth (as you have done again) and dragging out this discussion.




    *** You mean the AANA shouldn't be giving advice. What I learned is that I should not count on what is on the AANAs web site and pass that information on.



    *** Oh that's not true at all.
    So again why is a non-CRNA giving CRNA school admission advice, and yes you are still the only one that thinks that there is incorrect information on the AANA website.

    OK I guess it must be me. It must actually be unreasonable for me to expect the CRNA's professional organization to post accurate information on their website. I guess it is actually unreasonable of me to expect that the requirements to enter a profession would be easy to find with a simple web search. I guess it is reasonable that any person considering becoming a CRNA must send first determine who the regulating organization is, then send emails to the regulating organization to find out what the actual requirements are.
    You should direct people interested to contact their perspective school. Every school has their own requirements. Just like schools determine what type of work is considered acute care. Some only take adult ICU and some take PICU and ED.

    *** I passed on information listed on the AANAs website. Besides I have been through the NA school admissions process a number of times as a coach, letter writer, editor, driver, mock interviewer and other rolls.

    and yes you are still the only one that thinks that there is incorrect information on the AANA website.
    *** Absolutely not true. Anyway don't you think it is presumptuous of you to assume that you know what every person who comes across the false information on the AANAs website thinks?
    Once again I am very happy to stand corrected. I thank you for correcting me. I sent three emails away to NA programs and they confirmed what you told me. Only one of the three schools, the one based in a large university's SON, would not accept the MSN in place of a bachelors degree.

    *** The issue wasn't each school's requirements. The AANA's website lists a bachelors degree as a requirement to become a CRNA. I incorrectly assumed that the information found on the AANA's website could be counted on to be accurate. I passed on the AANA's false information. I have been corrected and happily so.

    That is just the thing. You should not be coaching or mock interviewing anyone pre-SRNA. You are passing yourself off as a subject matter expert without the requisite education or background.

    Which university would not take an entry level MSN and who did you talk to?
