Don't get me wrong I have learned a ton in the last two years but so much of the things that they make you do seems so unneccesary. I honestly believe that most programs would see an improvement in grades if they didn't give the students so much busy work to take away from their study time. Oh well, I'll get off my soapbox.
As far as the level of difficulty of CRNA school. The CRNA that I talked with while doing my OB rotations said she breezed through RN school and when she went into CRNA school it was a whole new world. Definately not nursing school anymore. As the saying goes " Toto, we arent in Kansas anymore". She did say this to me "It's doable" I think having your feet firmly planted on the ground and sheer determination coupled with huge loans will get most people through a CRNA program.
As far as hospital work goes I plan on working in a CTR unit so I should get my fill of the vents and all the vasoactive drips etc. So by the time I apply for CRNA school I should have at least 3 years of experience in that area, maybe even four if I take my time with my BSN. That would put me at around 37-38 years old then. I'll also need all that time to SAVE the money that I will need to put myself through.
