  6. RCU ( Respiratory Care Unit) experience for CRNA school
    That sounds close enough to ICU. that experience may not satisfy the requirement for CRNA school, but there is no doubt that it is one step closer to ICU. it will be easier to get an ICU job later...

    Good luck. I was blindsided with that. I'm sorry but i could not remember exactly what it was. Maybe because i did not know most of them. They said it is not considered in the admission criteria.
