Hello all! My advisor at my BSN program (just finshed, YAY :hatparty: ) recently brought up the idea of CRNA. In an effort to seek out all my options I've started to do a little bit of research. I do have a couple of questions that I didn't find elsewhere on this forum so here goes:
I'm in the process of applying for a NICU/PICU position at a level 1 hospital. I know CRNA schools prefer adult ICU however would my cardiac step-down background (roughly 2 years) compensate? I currently care for post CABG and vaso gtts.
Someone else mentioned a lack of sciences during their nursing school. I'm in the same boat there, my ADN only required A&P and my BSN had no extra science requirements. The thought of chem 1 & 2 is no biggie, however would I need organic to really be considered a good candiate?
Lastly, how many schools would you recommend to apply to? I honestly didn't realize how competetive CRNA school application was/is.
Thanks for your help, also if you do know where some of these answers are then just kindly point me in that direction!
