    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?
    Get into an ICU right after if you can.

    I will be 23 when I start my CRNA program this fall. To my knowledge I am the youngest one in my class.

    25 is the youngest I've every met. I was 26 when I was accepted and going into my second year now. I am the youngest one in my program. mostly everyone is 28-35 and a few 30 yo's.

    I dont know how someone who is 22 could even have the appropriate experience.

    what is that:
    graduate at 17
    ADN: done at 19 then work in an icu directly out of school while getting your bachelors for 2 years?
    21 years old and apply?

    Propofolled,
    How much ICU time did/do you have? Did you smoke the GRE? i will say it for many... many of us are jealous of your accomplishment others maybe concerned with the amount of critical care time/experience that you have.... good luck with your pursuit

    Thanks Stymes, its been alot of work in a condensed amount of time.....................Graduated HS 18, ADN 1 month after turning 21, BSN 22. I will have 2 yrs ICU experience when school starts in August. I had 1 1/2 yr when I applied and my final BSN classes were still pending . I got my CCRN after a year of working. GRE 1160. I believed its all up to the person on how bad they seek out experience and want to acheive something. I've made it a point to constantly continue to learn new things. I started recovering fresh hearts after a year which in my unit there are plenty of people with 5 yrs + experience that havent gotten to that point and come to me asking questions. My interview was all clinical so I think my experience is adequate while at the same time I realize you can never know enough.

    I'll be 40 when I start. When I interviewed,I was 37 and all of the nurses interviewing who were past 30, we were all accepted since we had a lot of nursing experience.

    You are about the average age. I am 33 years old and I'm applying. I could have started sooner but I took 2 years off after receiving my ADN and there you go. I think the average is late 20s to 40s.
