    Hi there,
    That was my path....for like 10 years. Long story.
    Anyway,I can guide you to the right school for your RN to BSN program. University of Phoenix Online is GREAT! I did it in 1.5 years and with a 4 months old baby at home. Very good program! My only sudgestion,make sure youe GPA stays high,above 3.2 with 2-3 years of exp. as a critical care nurse, and also get your CCRN. You can get it after one year in the ICU. It aslo depends on school you are applying to.
    Best of luck!

    DO YOU KNOW IF I WILL NEED MY ASSOCIATES IN ARTS DEGREE (AA) TO USE THE UNIVERSITY OF PHEONIX RN-BSN ONLINE PROGRAM?? BECAUSE (AS FAR AS I'VE HEARD) ALL UNIVERSITIES REQUIRE AN AA DEGREE.. THEY SAY AN A.S DEGREE IS NOT SOMETHING YOU CAN USE TO ACCELERATE FOR A BSN "FOR UNIVERSITIES". FOR INSTANCE.. IN FLORIDA.. TO GET ACCEPTED INTO A UNIVERSITY IN THE FIRST PLACE.. YOU HAVE TO HAVE AN AA DEGREE.. YOU CAN'T JUST HAVE AN A.S IN NURSING AND EXPECT TO USE A UNIVERSITIE'S PROGRAM. I'M JUST WONDERING IF THIS RULE APPLIES TO UNIVERSITY OF PHEONIX AS WELL.. DID YOU HAVE AN A.S ONLY PRIOR TO DOING THE RN-BSN ONLINE PROGRAM?? OR DID YOU HAVE YOUR AA AS WELL? THANKS~

    I am currently a nursing student and will be graduating next summer in August 2008 with an AS in nursing.. my ultimate goal is to become a crna. I plan to graduate with my AS in nursing and obtain my RN license, do the RN-BSN 2 1/2 yrs online program while working as a RN and at the same time get my ICU experience in.. hopefully I will have ATLEAST 2 years of ICU experience by the time I get done with my BSN.. and then will apply to a CRNA program.. I have the next 4-5 years planned out to a tee.. and hopefully everything will follow through as planned.

    well, my intial question/concern is this..

    I have been doing extensive research up until now and something that's still vague to me is exactly what mathematics courses are needed to be completed prior to getting accepted into a crna program. I would like to make sure I am in the right path as far as required prereqs. Granted, I do know that every program have there own set of standards and requirments.. but surely there are BASIC mathematics prereqs needed/required for ALL crna programs right??

    Regarding some of the ADVANCED science courses that are needed/covered in BSN AND CRNA Programs, such as organic chem and physics (if that is even required), do these science courses require certain levels of math to be completed?
    I guess you can tell I am a little confused about the science and mathematics part.

    I'm just concerned that the BSN program I will be taking in the near future will not include certain math or science classes needed for CRNA programs.. and you know how a lot of science and math classes are foundational.. requiring each be completed before being able to move on/advance to the next higher course.. I would hate to find out, at the end of my BSN, that I am missing something.

    If somebody would kindly give me a general overview of the mathematics and science courses that will be covered in a BSN AND CRNA program.. that would be GREAT!! If somebody could help me I would greatly appreciate it!! Thanks in advance!!
