    I applied when i was 23 and am now 24 and have been in Anesthesia school for a little over a month now. I dont think i am at a disadvantage because i only have 2 years experience. I am mature enough to know all the work that needs to be put in a program of this nature. Many of my friends are still partying every night and are going to work on 3 hours of sleep. They dont understand that I am unable to perform competently under those circumstances. I guess my point is that if you are mature enough at a young age and are ready for the challenges ahead then you will be just fine in an anesthesia program. Just obtain you ICU experience at a large hospital where you will learn alot in a short period of time.

    Your average SRNA class will have a mixture of 20's,30's,and 40's. My best friend was 22 when he applied and started at 24 a couple months into the program, I was 24 when I applied and 25 when I started with him, there were several 24-29 year olds in our class. There are quite a few young 30's and some in their 40's. Because some of us are hearing about the nurse anesthesia program earlier, we can focus our studies and make a plan to start school earlier. It makes you even more determined to start anesthesia school. Years ago, many nursing students and nurses didn't even know about anesthesia, had a family, and then decided to go. Everyone has to feel comfortable at that point in their life to dedicate the amount of time needed. When you're young, you just want to continue your education until you're finished. I had 3 years of ICU experience before I started, worked in a very busy and autonomous CVSICU, so I was very prepared.
