I'm a third semester nursing student and have been doing some research on the CRNA career. Anesthesia interests me very much, and I'm not interested just because of the salary! Most of the information I found has really emphasized the need for excellent grades on a transcript. A few years ago (when I first began taking college classes), I was not very concerned with my grades and have some unfavorable ones on my transcript. (A few C's) The past 2 semesters, I've made all A's. My first semester of nursing school, I made all B's and 1 C. (I had a baby in the middle of the semester.) I was wondering how potential schools might look at those lower grades. Do they focus more on the actual nursing class grades? I don't want to take all of the required chemistry if I would not be considered because of them.
Any input would be greatly appreciated.
