    I'm planning on working in ICU/CCU for about 2 years then going on to CRNA school after receiving my BSN. We'll see how all that goes!

    I, like the other posters, going for my RN ASN. I am 44 tomorrow, don't know if I feel like going back for BSN, but if I do, my employer can pay for it!

    I would like to get a BSN, and then a Masters in Public Health. Who knows what will happen after that...

    I've gone from LPN (25 yrs) to ADN to BSN and now I'm working on my Master's. Hope to finish in 3 more semesters. I'd be done in 2, but I switched from CNS program to the adult NP.

    I currently have a BSN and plan on applying next fall for CRNA school...... I am currently (hence the name) in the CICU.

    I am currently working on my BSN. Will work for a year or two and than go on for my MSN and become a CRNA.

    It's nice to see all the people who are interested in becoming a CRNA!

    I am going to get my ADN then(unless I don't get into the very competitive ADN program I will just go for the BSN) BSN and on to a Master's program. Currently I am leaning (heavily) towards becoming a CRNA, but I am not ruling our becoming a midwife or nurse practitioner. I am going to see what I like during clinicals during my ADN. I know so many nursing students who went in with one area they thought they would like, to find out something else interested them. I definitely know I want at least a Masters, which is why I am so anal about my grades now. Anyone find that people just don't get why we want A's so bad???

    I guess most ppl will be trying to get a masters as I will myself.

    Makes me wonder, how many BSN's go and get a PA degree??

    ADN -> BSN -> MSN (CRNA)

    WOW! CRNA school sure is getting alot of attention isn't it???

    I know it's competitive now...can't wait to see what it's like in 4 years!!!

    In the Philadelphia area, we have 4 schools...all of them are accepting applications for 2005 or later! And most of them require 2 years of acute care nursing.

    Interesting question. Probably depends - it's teh whole "nursing model" vs the "medical model" thing again.

    PAs aren't licensed to practice in Mississippi (my state), so if I planned on staying here it wouldn't do me much good to pursue that path.

    I'm interested in WHNP/CNM and CRNA... and of course, I still have those vague pre-med ideas in the back of my head.

    I'm going to wait and decide where I go from my BS once I get through undergrad and have a little bit clearer idea of where my interests lie.
