Hello fellow nurses,I'm an RN, BSN working in neuro ICU currently. My dream is to become a CRNA but knowing that I won't be able to work as an SRNA, and I'm not ready financially to stop working, I'm not ready to start a CRNA program now. I was wondering if going the NP route first will help getting to my CRNA goal. Reason for this is I don't want to be out of school for a long time before going into CRNA school as it will be challenging for me to get back on track and NP is one of the advanced programs where you can still be in school and work full-time. I guess I'm just looking for some guidance here and maybe some of you have done it or know someone that has. Any advice will be appreciated. Precise questions:1. Is there an NP to CRNA program? If so how long? 2. Does going to NP school even help with getting through CRNA considering knowledge and time? 3. Is it worth it going to NP school first or is it a waste of time?4. Any rough idea of how many years it will take to achieve my end Goal? I'm desperate for your help, please. Thank you.
