I am a 25 year old male that will graduate December 2012 with my BSN from the University of Rochester's accelerated one year program for non-nurses. My current nursing GPA is a 3.68 with 16 credits left to complete this semester, all of which Im projected to receive an A or A- in the courses. I have a BS in biology and a minor in chemistry (3.8gpa) from a St John Fisher College in Rochester, NY. While completing my first degree I worked as an anesthesia tech for a total of four years both part time and full-time, where I had a variety of responsibilities of cleaning and stocking to scheduling and interviewing new employees for the department. When I started my BSN program this past January I transferred to the Cardio Thoracic ICU where i've been working perdiem.
My options right now are to work at my current hospital, its a medium-large size hospital, level 2 trauma center. The ICU i work on is a 12 bed unit that receives primarily post-op CABG patients and associated to the #1 cardiac program in NY. My other option is to goto the hospital associated to my university, Strong Memorial Hospital in Rochester, NY. They are a level I trauma and tertiary hospital for the area.
Currently I am looking at jobs and want peoples opinions as to where I should apply for the most well rounded experience for acceptance to CRNA school. Also Im interested in hearing what you think about my chances of being a strong candidate for acceptance to CRNA school?
