I have to agree 100% with Donn C............for all of you that are hoping to become a CRNA because of monetary benefits, think again. It is not just
get your BSN and immediate start school. You are required to have minimum of one year work experience in an ICU, that is the minimum.........you will be applying for a position that nurses with alot more experience possess. Also one of the hardest fields of nursing to go into and the most at risk........take under consideration that your malpractice insurance
will be costing $6,000 to $10,000 per year and those are current figures, not what they will be when you finish. There are many students out there that want anesthesia but they have no clue as to what is covered by that title.
Most of you have probably never been in a trauma room with a major trauma, let alone in an operating room. Keep your eyes open before making any decision as to what you want "to be" when you finish, you are just beginning and there may be something that you want more.................
