In retrospect what would you do differently prior starting CRNA school

Now that you are in the CRNA program and knowing what you know now, what would you do differently before starting the program?

I am all done with CRNA school so since I have been there I will answer. ENJOY EVERY MINUTE YOU HAVE ONCE YOU GET ACCEPTED!!!! DON'T STUDY OR EVEN THINK ABOUT IT. SPEND TIME WITH FRIENDS, FAMILY, ETC. GO ON A GREAT VACATION, ETC. :yeah:

I should have leveled my hunter to 70 in WoW. Not that it matters now that I'll be playing WAR instead. Thats right, during school.

I agree with post #1......

If I could go back:

I would take a vacation: a good one. Get drunk, laugh, take pictures, be carefree.....focus later.

I know that feeling of wanting to try to read something/ try to prepare, but really: its not going to make a difference. I haven't been on a vacation since way before school started... I sure wish I did it before I had all these thoughts in my head :)

Have fun!

Hi guys:

I know you all agree on taking a long vacation and not studying at all. What about core classes? Should I take as many core classes as possible? Thanks

yeah, definitely start taking those core MSN classes if that's the kind of program you're in

if you can, take them in the intensive format.

I would lost some weight so that the weight that I gained while in school wouldnt have been so significant LOL! oh yes....and do ABSOLUTELY whatever the heck it was that I wanted to do with the sole purpose of having complete FUN!

Sounds like I should be booking a vacation right now. Thanks for the advice everyone :)

My dad keeps telling me to save more money. Mind you, I put a great deal of it away. However, since I know I'm going to be applying to school within the next year or so, I plan to enjoy my "free" time. I don't have any classes this summer (organic chem starts in the fall). I'm going to Argentina this summer for a week with friends. I just built a new HTPC. I probably don't "need" to do these things, but these are things I won't have time to do once I'm in school.

i would've worked a bunch and saved my pennies.... i was told "oh, there's plenty of loans and $$$ for school once you are in. don't worry."

wrong!!!

it is very, very difficult to pay a mortgage, car note, etc. with the loans the school gives. my husband picked up a second job (yeah, i am super-lucky to have such a supportive mate!!):redbeathe:redpinkhe:heartbeat

but like others have said, take a vacation. it will be the last one in a long while!!!!

and my program is an msn--i wish i could've gotten some of the nursing core classes out of the way. it would certainly lighten up the case load so i could focus on the fun classes!!;)
