Pre-CRNA Inquiry

Posted

Specializes in critical-care.

It is my dream to one day work as a CRNA. What are some suggestions you guys have to prepare myself for this career field. I understand it takes a solid foundation in critical-care nursing before you are even able to apply to most CRNA programs. I plan to work in an ICU within the next few years to gain experience in this area of nursing.

For those of you who are following a similar path, are currently in CRNA school, or are established nurse anesthetists already, what are your suggestions? Any advice on challenges you experienced, certifications to get, programs to look into, things to study, classes to take (or retake) to improve chances of getting accepted to CRNA school?

Ahhhh jeeeze. Don't take this the wrong way but that search box in the upper right than corner will help you find everything you need to know. If people didn't ask this questions everyday then i'd entertain it, but I'm sick of answering the same questions. Sorry.

But using the search function is so much work! :sarcastic: I agree, the OP question could be answered within 3 minutes by search this great site.

I'm sure that I've thoroughly answered this question before.

Shadowing a CRNA for a full day, perhaps on multiple days, is the first place I'd start before asking those other questions.
