My first post, to inquire about something I've been having trouble finding by on my own.
I know there are some CRNA schools that accept students without a BSN or RN, but I have been having trouble finding them online. None of the CRNA program search engines I have found have a search criteria for 'degree required' or something of that sort.
I transferred from a nursing school to another school as a biology student. In my nursing curriculum, I completed a med-surg clinical, as well as all the courses required before it (2 semesters of anatomy and phys., Microbiology, Pharmacology, Pathophysiology, health assesment, etc.) At my new University, I have completed two semesters of Organic chemistry, Physics, and several physiology related biology courses.
So, I am also wondering if my background in Nursing education, in addition to the advanced courses I have taken to complete my degree in biology will make me a desirable candidate. I anticipate to graduate with a GPA of approximately 3.3/4.0 scale.
Really, I am looking for a way to find schools that will do a direct entry into a CRNA program, without a BSN. I have heard of some schools offering a one year BSN program for those with another bachelors degree, giving a year of experience in their university hospital ICU/ER, and then admission into the CRNA program.
Any help here is appreciated. Thanks all,
