Just a random question, but what has been the average age and years of experience does the typical CRNA student have?? Not just the minimum.

My class of 30 has anywhere from 2 years of ICU experience to 10 years. I'd say the vast majority have at least 3 years. It really varies quite a bit. The age goes anywhere from 25-35; there's a student a year ahead of us that's in his 40's.

Thanks guys! I'm a new grad from a second degree program, applying for jobs now and CRNA school does intrigue me. I have shadowed once before but still don't know if thats where I would like to end up. Currently I work in an ER and love it and Ive seen myself going back into the ER. I'm a bit of a micromanager when it comes to my own life and if CRNA school is where I want to go, I wanted to start kind of planning for that ha.
