Hello everyone. I'm in the process of completing my prerequisites for crna school and have a bit of a conundrum.

A bit of background: current MSICU RN at a level I trauma center. Graduated BSN with honors. This is my second career second degree so it has been more than 10 years since I've taken most of the prereqs for crna school thus have to retake them before I apply.

I am currently finishing gen chem 2 at a local community college as an in person course. I still need to retake organic chem, biochem, physics and stats.

question: would it matter where I take these classes? Would a community college suffice or should I take them at a university? If a university if preferable, can I take them online through New England University?

any and all advice is greatly appreciated!

The two classes I retook, physiology and chemistry, I re took at a community college. Mine were 10 years out of date as well as I had received Cs in them. I was paying for them out of pocket, so financial reasons weighed heavy on why I went the community college route. My school did not care, so hopefully yours won't. You can always reach out to the school and ask. I too had a BSN with honors, so perhaps that was part of it--I knew I could do the work. Also, if you haven't thought about it, your hospital might have a tuition reimbursement program, I hadn't been employed long enough to take advantage of mine, but if you have, and if for some reason they don't want CC classes, then that could help alleviate some of the financial burden perhaps.
