  4. What do you think about male nurses going into pediatrics?

  10. Required to keep CCRN when accepted into school?
    I sure hope not. I'll start TCU's CRNA program in the spring and my CCRN will expire in sometime during the second year. I have an eery feeling that I'll have enough to focus on at that time without...

  11. Are my stats competitive for CRNA (Samuel or Columbia)?
    Stats actually look ok man, my concern is why you only want to apply for schools in Northern CA or NYC. If it's a family or extenuating circumstances type of thing I get it, but if not you might want...
