    Haha,-

    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.

    People in my program range from 23-42, most people fall in the 26-32 range but I have no idea the class average. I'm 28 and sometimes I feel like I'm one of the oldest ....

    I'm the youngest in my class. I'm 25 and I graduate September 2013 at an advanced age of 27.haha
    Graduated from college at 21 and worked in a medical ICU for 4 years before CRNA school.

    I will be starting school in August 2012 at the age of 27, and finish right before my 30th birthday. At least I will still be 29 when I graduate!

    My program ranges from 24-48 years old. I started at age 32. Average age in my program is probably upper 20s.

    It's encouraging to hear of younger people in crna programs. I'm 23 now and have two more months until I can transfer to our icu (I work at a level one trauma hospital). Every time I mention my goals all my coworkers say I'm too young and I should work for a few more years before I consider applying.... so now I keep my mouth shut lol.

    I am 26 and will be studying for an accelerated BSN starting in May, and I am interested in becoming a CRNA. Is it wise to go straight into the ICU after graduation or would it be better to work on a floor first?
