I'm currently in nursing school will have my BSN next december. After looking at some nurse anesthetia schools, I noticed most require application by october, november, or december for the next fall term. So when I graduate in 2011 December I plan to take a month break and vacation and rest after taking my boards hopefully in January or in December depending on when they offer them. Work from February to August 6 months on a regular Med Surg unit to get my feet wet and then transfer to critical care and do a year by that next July 2013 I will have my year in. I can apply for CRNA program before i finish the one year in critical just need to have the one year done before i begin...is that correct? And my GPA and if I took patho and had a C in it should I retake it later on when i have the time before applying to CRNA school that is the only C on my transcript despite another C i have when i was in high school and decided to take up pharmacy technician as dual enrollment at a technical college and made a C in their Anatomy and Physiology. I had too much work to do anatomy and concentrate on high school work but it didnt transfer and I had to take Anatomy and Physiology 1 and 2 with labs and have gotten B's in all of them. We dont have B- ,B, and B+ on our grading scale I wish we did though.
