I have a question regarding the average age of starting Crnas. I'm currently 19, and after having finished my nursing prereqs, I will be starting my nursing program on Monday. I am currently in an ADN program which will conclude in two years, and I plan on attempting to get a job in an ICU right after graduation, while achieving my BSN online. I want to do this to knock the year of ICU experience, so I can apply to grad school immediately after achieving my BSN which I'm assuming will take roughly a year. That would put me at 22. If I got accepted as a Srna in a program which averaged 28 months to graduate, j would begin practicing at 24.
My question to you is is this a typical pathway regarding age of entering practice, and if you all have any tips regarding the process as a whole.
