Now What?????

  1. I am fairly new here, so I will post a little background......I really, REALLY want to become a CRNA. I was recently offered a full scholarship to become a FNP, which I turned down because it really wasn't my dream.....CRNA is! I have been way from the ICU for 4 years and I am in the process of looking for a job (I have been working in a PACU). My GPA from my ADN was pretty bad, like a 2.53 and my GPA from my BSN was much better..a 3.9. I took my GRE today and I SUCKED! I got a 490 Quant and a 450 Verbal. I was looking at the GRE website and it said (for institutions) that they should look at all of the scores if it is taken multiple times and that any great impovement basically was a fluke????? Not in those exact words, mind you.

    So now what???? I have felt so discouraged since I decided to persue the CRNA route. It seems that every turn presents an insurmountable task. I don't want to give up on my dream, but I am beginning to wonder if it will ever become a reality. I am really smart, but I have never done well on standardized tests. I feel that my scores on the GRE are in no way a reflection of my intelligence, but I may never get to prove that in an interview. UGH!!!

    How many have taken the GRE more than once? Did your scores really improve the subsequent time(s)? When you applied to schools how did they view multiple GRE scores?

    Thanks for any input!
