I'm 19 and graduating in January as a LPN, my dream is to be a CRNA. Has anyone went from Lpn to CRNA and how did everything go? Just curious !!

Your thread has been moved to the CRNA forum, since virtually no CRNAs are going to be reading posts in the LPN/LVN Corner forum on a routine basis. Good luck to you.

I started out as LVN and eventually became CRNA. This year I will be going back for my PhD in nursing. There shouldn't be any reason why you can't go on and become a CRNA. You just need to apply to an LVN to BSN program and continue from there.

I started out as an NA (nursing assistant), and will be starting a DNP degree CRNA program next month. I know that doesn't exactly answer your question, but if you were wondering if you can start out a bit "lower" on the totem pole (from a degree standpoint ONLY) and still end up in CRNA school, then yes, you can :).

Thanks For Your Input !!:up:
