I'm in the process of researching the career of a nurse anesthetist and the pathways to attaining a degree in this field. I would appreciate the honest opinions of any current CRNAs as to whether it would be better to do an accelerated MSN program then a post master's dnp later down the road or BSN, work one or two years, and then a post baccalaureate dnp.
My rationale is that if I went the BSN route I would have to take a loan being that it would be a second bachelor's degree and I therefore don't have any more Federal funding. However, I would receive financial aid if I did the accelerated MSN program but I'm assuming I may not have financial for the dnp portion.
PLEASE NO NEGATIVITY TOWARDS MY ASPIRATIONS OF BECOMING A CRNA!! I've read SEVERAL threads in which I felt people were attacking the OP for his or her questions about the field. Please don't assume my intentions which aren't stated.
