HELP ME to become a CRNA


I have a question for all the nurses out there.

I've been a nurse for almost 4 years now, and I wanted to get my masters degree: Nurse Anesthetist. I've worked not on an acute care setting, like ICU and stuff. I believe that's what they are looking for right? My dilemma is I graduated from the Philippines. I am not so sure where to start. And like which university accepts Master's for Nurse Anesthetist. And since I graduated from the Philippines, to get to a university do I still need to take the TOEFL exam? Our Nursing course is primarily in English anyways. Or is that a school digression?

International graduate nurses out there help me! J

Thank you!
