I have been at my current job for 16 years and am 34 years old. I recently decided to go back to school to complete my associates degree. (I only have 9 credit hours completed). I have a looong way to go for the ADN program. My "plan" consists of taking classes while working full-time and should be done in 4 years or so! That puts me at nearly 39 years old.
I really would like to be a CRNA. I love the surgery aspect and feel I would like that the most. Is it too late for me? By the time I am complete with my schooling...is there an age requirement to become accepted into a CRNA program? Unfortunately, going to school full-time is not an option for me. I have to work to pay my bills. I am completing my CNA next semester and plan to get a job as a CNA. I was hoping to work at a local hospital to gain experience while I get my ADN.
Do you think I have a chance?
