So you got 4 year in pre-med, and then did an accelerated BSN??? how could you get a BSN and be in CRNA school at 24? did you finish your BS in pre-med in a year? i'm so confused. Did you go to college when you were 16?
Lol. I'm 29! I'm not the 24 year old. Graduated pre-med at age 22. Worked for 4 years. Went to 22 month accelerated program when I was 26. Worked in ICU right out of school at age 28. Will start CRNAS school at age 29.
Yes, I was fortunate enough to land a job in a high acuity ICU right after graduation. I basically knew that I wanted to be a CRNA straight out of high school, so that helped me not waste any time, and helped me focus my efforts. Not that any time spent practicing nursing is a waste by any means. I worked for 2.5 years with some of the sickest patients in my area, and very little support in the way of new technology or adequate staffing.. So I think it toughened me up pretty well and gave me the clinical knowledge that I need.
