I have just been accepted into an RN program that starts in Jan. My ultimate goal is to be a CRNA. My background is in mechanical engineering, and so I will ultimately be leaving my job for school.
What I dont have a good feeling for is the most accepted pathway to CRNA. Is it better to go to a BSN program, rather than doing RN to BSN? Especially since, once you get your RN, well then you can do the RN-BSN program while getting your two years ICU expereince and hopefully have the hospital pay for the RN-BSN.
However, my friends wife is in a CRNA program in Kansas City, and she told me that only one of 15 in her class did the RN-BSN-CRNA path, but she had 20yrs of RN experience. So that makes me think that going to a BSN program is better. But that is what Im trying to figure out.
Please lend me your opinions, I'd realy appreciate it.
