Hello past, present, and future CRNA peers. I will be attending Pittsburgh in August and am thrilled that my name is followed by those four coveted letters, SRNA. I am also thankful for others who have shared their stories on this board and look forward to helping others who will come after. My request concerns graduate nursing classes that I can take now in order to transfer into my program. I have copied a description of the classes I may take. Are you aware of any school/class that may fulfill these requriements, is cheap, and can be taken on-line. Thanks for your help.
