    You're right. Im just surprised by the amount of people that that think they know it all on here. Then yankeesrn states i
    " need to just worry about nursing school. You have to make sure you get a high GPA and also at least 2 years of ICU experience before you will even be considered."

    One this person assumed i have not researched this carreer an two they have misinformed me. I need at least ONE year critical care experience. And its not all about gpa. As long as I maintain at least a 3.3 and do really good on the g.r.e. have good references. I stand a good chance of getting in somewhere.

    And I dont need to just worry about nursing school. It is always best for one to think of the future and have goals.

    You should aim for 3.5 or higher. I am beginning CRNA school in August. You are right, since I only had a little over a year of ICU experience. Definitely getting your CCRN is a plus. GRE is important, so I used 3 review books including one on the top 100 words on the GRE. Also, I think a good thing to do is choosing 4-5 schools to apply to. Have you been on It has great info. You can do it, just stay motivated and determined.

    I agree with aiming for at least a 3.5 or higher. It may make the difference in getting the interview which can be a lot of the battle. Also, some programs are starting to require 2 years of critical care experience. Just check out the schools you are interested in to make sure of their requirements. Some schools allow a 2.75 GPA, but their average student may be a lot higher than that.

    So just because I spelled school as skool, you think I don't know how to spell? I didnt realize I was writing an essay for my proffessor. I thought I was just posting on a forum.

    You noticed the spelling but you didn't notice the punctuation?
    I didnt capitalize all the i's and i didn't use apostrophes. I abbreviated "bring" by omitting the i.
    if your going to correct me, correct the whole paragraph not just a word.
