    Hi everyone,

    I will be transferring from med-surge (1 yr 5 months experience) to RCU ( Respiratory Care Unit) in a busy level 1 Trauma hospital. I have the intention to eventually go on to CRNA school and was wondering if this area of critical care would be acceptable for CRNA school. The school I am looking to apply to states: (Barry University) I also graduated from Barry with my BSN.

    ". Clinical experience should be direct hands-on patient care. The "critical care setting" is not limited to a specific work area. However, the complexity of the patient population's health problems should routinely require non-invasive and invasive monitoring, continuous pharmacologic infusions and mechanical ventilation. The CCRN credential serves as evidence of required knowledge and experience, and is highly regarded."

    This unit provides ventilation, drips, non-invasive monitoring not too sure about invasive monitoring, also will be sent to school for 6 weeks for the CCRN certification, am still a little hesitant because its not " ICU". Please help!!

    I think you have discussed it in another thread... The best thing to do is to call and ask the school you are interested in. Usually only ICU satisfies the requirements of all schools. Some schools make exceptions to this rule.

    That experience is good, but you definitely need experience with invasive lines. Once you have a few months on this unit, I bet you could get an agency job in an ICU at another hospital or offer to do overtime on the ICU unit in your hospital.

    I have my application in for this class, its just incomplete, still need to get my letters, GRE and personal statement. Hoping I can get everything in by May, if not I will just have to take my chances and apply after the deadline and hope to get in.

    I was also accepted Medic RN! Where you at the interview on March 18? My first choice was South Florida, how about yours? Can't wait to meet the rest of my future classmates
  11. by   Medic RN
    Yes, I was there on the 18th. I chose Orlando, from the way they made it sound, we should be getting our first choices

    Yes I hope so! I am just anxiously awaiting the formal acceptance letter through the mail! The email said we should expect it in three weeks so hopefully we will receive it next week!

    I've applied for the 2014 class, actually had my application done in November, but am still waiting to hear about an interview. Did you guys who have already been accepted get any idea if everyone so far has ICU experience? I have 6 years ED / Trauma and flight experience as well as my CCRN, but no ICU so I'm starting to get a little anxious...

    Congratulations to those accepted into the program! I was hoping to see your stats to compare them to my own, I'm also applying to Barry for the 2014 start. Thanks
