I am wondering why god made you withdraw form the program you were in? And why is god denying you your dream? I think you need to pray some more.

.....?????

Thank you so much for your post. It really means alot to me. I have considered NP school but I just dont know if it is for me. I have so much student loan debt, I just think I need to either finish what I started or change careers altogether (in something that does not require a pricey education). PM me anytime. Withdrawing from CRNA school is tough and I wish I had someone before to share with.

God Bless you too.

Have u looked into university of so Indiana at Evansville. They offer some different np programs. For about 320 a credit Hr. They will take 12 credits putting us down to 30 needed. It's all online no campus visits required. We can get the degree under 10000 and keep outta default. Just a thought. Deadline is feb1 so hurry. I need a study buddy.

Yes it's the one. Very reasonable compared to others I've looked at.

Caveat to thoughts on anesthesia school:

I now understand how important a routine fitness schedule is to doing well in anesthesia school. It isn't always the case but as humans descrimination can enter the minds of administrators and preceptors, if they see a student gaining weight. Some might even tell you about it. Many successful students were able to maintain a relatively routine fitness schedule, which helped them maintain their weight and relieve stress. Whatever you do try to keep moving, it will build the stamina you need to get through it. Other threads discuss this very important topic and I highly recommend them for those wanting to go to anesthesia school.

Hey Spode,

Don't let dropping of anesthesia school get you down. I did the same thing. Best decision I ever made career wise. I was halfway through my program and just hated it. The surgeons were *******s with the exception of a few. Half of the anesthesia providers I trained with were cordial the other half were lacking a personality. I am a people person and knew sitting next to the machine was not for me. I only went into anesthesia for the money. Fast forward one year and I am almost done with my FNP. I have been training with a cosmetic dermatology group learning laser hair removal, botox/dysport, fillers and laser resurfacing. I was offered a job starting out at more than my friends who are just finishing anesthesia school. I will work 5 days a week 9 to 5 but it is all low stress with happy patients for the most part.

There is life after anesthesia school. Don't let it get you down. The other neonatal nurse practitioner who I work with also got halfway through anesthesia school and decided it wasn't for him. He got trained in aesthetics in well and couldn't be happier.

Bottom line, there is life and a lot of money to be made outside of the anesthesia world. Hang in there!

I forgot one thing in my previous reply: have you considered a NP program? A good NP can really help people and it's a good job. PS: my primary care provider is a NP and she's the best...I have my choice of many physicians and I choose a NP. Best of luck

This will not be a popular post, but I am compelled to write it. There is probably a "back story" that you have chosen not to share with us. Having been a CRNA and educator for many years, I have seen many people who did not have the personality, the attitude, the personal attributes or whatever to be a CRNA. It really is that "other" factor and not related to grades or technical skills. The ones that slip through the cracks and get in school and graduate are frequently unhappy and/or unsafe practitioners. Only you know the truth and I expect you will own up to it at some time.

While I love being a CRNA and my profession, I am very concerned that only the best, the brightest and the most emotionally stable enter the profession. A patient's life may depend on it.

I am very curious to know what personality type, attitude & personal attributes are best suited to the CRNA profession. What is the "other" factor? Thanks!
