    So I've been reading a few threads about nursing programs and a lot of them talk about how competitive GMU's nursing program has become over the last several years. This concerns me because this is the nursing program I plan on transferring to and is really the only one I've prepared myself for (bc of personal preferences such as cost and location). My transfer advisor warned me about this but I sort of took it lightly. I currently have a 4.0 and am a member of the Phi Theta Kappa Honor Society and do some community service work from time to time. I thought that this would be enough, but from what I'm hearing GMU often prefers current GMU students over transfers. Realistically, should this be enough to get accepted? If not, what other things could I do to increase my chances?

    Hello all,

    I am currently in my freshman year at college, but I've known since my junior year at high school that I've wanted to become a CRNA. So, I have a few questions in regards to what steps I need to take in order to prepare for CRNA school.

    For starters, what should I do to make my application stand out? My GPA is currently at a 4.0, but will that be enough? Should I become more involved at my current school, and/or do some volunteer work on the side? Will that make my application look more competitive? Also, what sciences should I consider taking, and will it be looked down upon if those credits come from a community college? Lastly, will 2 years of experience be enough experience when compared to other applications? Sorry for all of the questions, but I will much appreciate all responses.

    Thanks in advance!
