I'm currently a BSN new graduate nurse working on a Cardiac Step Down Unit but I aspire to become a CRNA. I understand the great deal of time & dedication required of this profession but I'm more then willing to put in the work to get the results. I've done a fair amount of research on CRNA programs nationwide but I'd like to get first hand feed back from any nurses who pursued this specialty. I know being fresh out of college doesn't necessarily work in my favor & that I need to get experience in the ICU before even applying.. But I figured the earlier I start planning & setting goals, the greater the likelihood of success. I have a lot of ambition & drive & am trying to take the fastest root possible in becoming a CRNA. I would greatly appreciate any feedback you'd have to offer!
So, does anyone have some helpful advice on certain programs, requirements/pre-reqs, or advice in general?
Thank you in advance
