Can I get into the Army Nurse Anesthesia with an MS-RN?

Posted

First of all, I know it isn't a common degree. An MS-RN is a Masters's of Science in general nursing. It is the degree earned at the University of Arizona that has taken place of the accelerated BSN. It is earned through the MEPN program and some refer to it as a "master's" BSN. (No that doesn't make complete sense.) I am having a very difficult time finding out what this degree means to the US Army or Northeastern University's NA program. Is there anyone currently in this Army program with an MS-RN? I really need to know if an MS-RN is a master's degree that will be accepted in place of a BSN. Hopefully someone with some experience can help!

Hi sorry, I'm not Army.. but in the NAVY to be considered for a CRNA position, you must have been awarded a master's degree from a graduate educational program approved by the council on accreditation of nurse educational programs/schools and must have passed the certification examinations from a professional specialty organization.

Requirements - USAGPAN I would contact the Army program directly through the link provided on the web page link. When you contact them it would also be helpful to add a link to the program that you took in the narrative portion.

Easiest way to find out is to call the school and ask! There are even online representatives you can message and ask questions to directly.

Also, you may already know this, but you can get into any civilian school and still sign on with the army, and you will fulfill your commitment once graduated. You would receive the full monthly stipend and benefits while in school. There are some requirements, such as the school has to be a DNP CRNA program. So basically, you can still get full benefits by going to a civilian school. You don't HAVE to go to the specific army CRNA program in TX. Hope that helps! (The people online on the army website are very helpful if you need more info. I was personally more interested in the Air Force, as I've heard really good things about their CRNA's.)
