I recently got accepted into a CRNA Program. I am set to start in May of 2020. I am so excited and scared at the same time. Is there anything I can do to better prepare myself?

Any books I should read? Thanks!

A lot of people will tell you not to read anything. I, however, am glad that I read up on some stuff and wish I would have more. You certainly don't have to. But I totally understand wanting to. I suggest brushing up on basic chemistry and some physiology - mainly autonomic nervous system and renal stuff. Also, review critical care stuff you think you already know. It could come in handy to be able to breeze over that stuff in school. I wouldn't start reading an anesthesia text at this point.

And for the love of all things Holy, review cellular respiration.
