  10. My journey to become a SRNA.

  15. Poll: Your Badges
    If you saw it in an article then that should answer your question. I sign my name on a daily basis and only put CRNA after my name. Badges would probably be based on hospital policy.

  18. Route Guidance for BSN/RN wanting CRNA
    I agree with the above advice. Also, if VCU is your goal then you will need to probably raise your GPA. Call or meet with their program director and ask what will have more weight. You may need to...
