I just joined this forum and it looks like a good one. I have been watchin the yahoo site for some time and it hardly ever moves. plus this site seems to have more info about what I need to know.
(long post- its my intro)
I have been an RN for three years, two of wich were on med/surg and now for a year I have worked in a Neuro specific ICU at the university of Utah. My life's goail is to do aneshesia. having just spent nigh unto a decade in school I finally feel like I am getting closer (I am just finishing my BSN)
I am planning on applying to about 15 schools this summer in hopes that one will pan out.
Heres the question. I have read many posts about prospective students or CRNA's that had like 3-5 years of ICU experince before they got accepted. Having only had one year, is there any way on earth I am going to be accepted? Does anyone know anybody that was accepted with only one year?
And how many years have some of you tried to no avail?
I am trying to get a feel for what the competiton is really like so I can assess my physcological rediness.
