I will be entering college next fall semester to obtain my BSN. I know for sure that I want to become a CRNA- and for all the right reasons. However it really scares me looking at the numbers, and seeing how MANY students apply for admission, and how FEW are accepted. If there is a real shortage, why are the # of students accepted into the CRNA programs so low? How long did it take all of you to be accepted into a program? What are the chances that I may go through all of this and be stuck as an RN- (obviously a valued profession, just not exactly what I personally want to do). Any insight as to how i may be able to go about this would be very helpful.
