I am a nurse from India, and will be immigrating to Canada in few months time.I completed my Bachelors in Nursing in 2009 and have been working in the ICU till Jan 2012. I wish to become a CRNA in the US, for many reasons. I have a GPA of 2.8 and am currently working in the OR. I would like to know if schools
admit international students and the what are the pro's and cons? All suggestions are welcome.

A GPA of 2.8 will not get you into CRNA school - at least ona 4.0 scale. Also, OR experience does not count toward ICU. although it seems that you have 3 years of ICU behind you and the experience is recent. As to the international student issue, I have never worked with an international student. I think that the BSN must come from a NLN accredited program.
