Your story interests me, and I'm so glad it all worked out. I'm currently finishing a Master's in Medical Science at a DO school after earning a BA in biology in undergrad. The primary goal was to use the masters as a boost in my med school application, but now I'm thinking that CRNA sounds like a more attractive career path. Obviously, I wouldn't want to go back and do a 4 year BSN after all this... Can you describe your experience with the ABSN? Did you need to become an RN first? How did you find a program that fit you best? How long did the whole process take between stopping med school and becoming a CRNA?

ABSN is an accelerated BSN, which leads you to get your RN. This along with a couple of years (at least) in an ICU setting, are required to apply for CRNA school. Schools vary on GPA and other requirements
