Graduation is right around the corner!! I graduate in May with my BSN and I've spent countless hours trying to figure out I will paying for CRNA school and living expenses since I have 3 children and my wife is home with the kids. I know I am just starting my career out, but I've always known that I wanted to be a CRNA. Since you typically can't work while in the program, I would have no income coming in while in school. Has anyone experienced a similar situation, and if so, what did you do to overcome this financial burden? How long did you save for before starting the program?
Most new grads will start out around 135k a year. If one were to live as if they were on an RN salary and use the rest for debt payment you could probably get rid of the 90k in student loans in 2 to 3 years. I'm just sayin'...
But good luck to you and thank you for your service (And I mean that truly, with no sarcasm)
