I am a 25 year old RN with 4 years of full time ICU experience. I graduated with my ADN at age 21 and have since acquired my BSN. I recently got rejected from CRNA school. Upon speaking with the director of the program she informed me that they (the admissions board) really liked me in the interview and also considered both my GRE scores and my BSN GPA to be exceptional. However, I put absolutely no effort into my ADN program and my GPA from there was low enough to pull my overall GPA down to a 2.92 (she said if it had been 3.0 I would've been in). I was 19 and knew I could pass with relatively no effort, partying was more fun and C's get degrees. I regret the indiscretions of my youth, but can't do much more than that now. That director informed my that the only way to get into CRNA school would be to either apply at other programs and hope someone would accept my based on the amount I have matured, or get a masters degree in order to give my GPA a much needed bump. My plan is to apply at other programs while working towards a MSN degree. That all being said, I need suggestions regarding the quickest or easiest MSN or Masters in Healthcare degree. I live in Indiana so WGU seems like a good fit. Any and all advice is welcome! Thank you in advance.
I need to get a masters degree as quickly as possible to give my GPA a bump so I can get into CRNA school.
