For what it's worth, here are the steps to becoming a CRNA:
1. Get your BSN (make sure you keep a cumulative and science GPA of 3.0 or better (it's best if you can keep it above a 3.4)
2. Get 1-2 years experience as an ICU nurse (you'll need to work in med/surge, most likely, for at least a year before they'll let you in the ICU).
3. Take the GRE (Graduate Record Exam) - it's required for entrance into 90% of crna schools
. Make sure you score better than 1,000 combined score.
4. Apply to several crna schools
5. Graduate 2-3 years later with a master's degree, specialization in Nurse Anesthesia, then take the Certification Exam and become a crna!
