I am currently finishing my junior year in my BSN program. Many of the students in my class are going for externships and tech jobs this summer, and my question is this: because my end goal is to become a CRNA, would becoming an anesthesia tech be better experience? I know that they have certifications of their own, but most of the students in my class doing nurse tech jobs are just being allowed to do it without completing tech training. Has anyone ever heard of a nursing student working part time/prn over the summer and during their last year of school to gain OR and anesthesia experience in preparation for CRNA school applications? Would it benefit me with my application to grad school? Any advice would be great. Thank you!
