Hey guys, I was hoping some of you can help me and give me some advice, Let me first start out by saying I am only 17 and a high school dropout, I quit going in the middle of 9th grade so I am not so educated, In febuary I will be 18 and will be able to start my GED classes, My career goal is to become a CRNA, I want to help people not feel any pain and make sure they keep breathing through operations, I would like to graduate with a CRNA license by the time I am 30, What would be your recomended method of accomplishing this goal, AND, Is this a realalistic goal?
I was thinking (ged - pre req's - bsn - (2 years of icu even though 1 is minumum I want 2 to show I am serious about it and then the msn/crna program?
Please don't discourage me because that doesn't help me, just please give me your opinion on how I can get to the ultimate goal. Thanks guys

A very realistic timeline posted by MB37. However, Reminisce, do not be discouraged . . . as I told my son, who wanted to be an RN also (but without the pre-reqs at the time), the years are going to pass, no matter what, so you might as well be working toward your goal, rather than wondering whether you could have done it.
p.s. - he got his RN, ICU experience and now is a flight RN on a helicopter!! So, it can be done.
