So I have recently been accepted into UIC (University of Illinois at Chicago) for their Fall admit BSN program. A little background, I have a BA in Psychology, just got my CNA, and excited to start nursing school
. I'm a little 'older' than a traditional student at 25 years young, but I feel that I am more ready to conquer nursing school now than I would have been earlier in life.
With that being said, I just got a job in the ICU as a CNA and I will be starting at UIC in August. I am trying to plan out my academic career and I REALLY want to attend school to be a CRNA after my BSN. I am taking the GRE April 2017 as I have had time to study before I start nursing school.
I am wondering if anyone has any education or employment tips to prepare myself for CRNA applications, specifically Rosalind Franklin, North Shore, and Rush University. I live in the south suburbs of Chicago and won't be commuting to Millikin or SIU anytime in the future. I will be done with my BSN program in May 2019.
Thanks in advance!
