I am an ICU nurse of 13 years who is interested in becoming a CRNA. I was suppose to pursue this 11 years ago but got sidetracked by life, i.e., making good money ($90,000-$100,000/year), marriage, and a baby (who is now 21 months old). I decided to revisit my dream and recently had an interview. The panel informed me that I need to repeat ALL science classes, since they are greater than 5 years old. I am currently 42 years old. I am worried that by the time I repeat General Chemistry I & II, Organic Chemistry I & II, Physics I & II, Anatomy & Physiology I & II, Biochemistry, and possibly some math class (if required, not sure), I WILL BE 46 YEARS OLD!! OR OLDER!!
I am very concerned that I will be too old to go to CRNA school and was wondering if there is anyone in your class 46 years old or greater.
