    CRNA Student Loans

    So- student loans. I am starting CRNA in August. Preface I’ve been lucky that I’ve taken multiple travel covid jobs and have a good saving heading into school. I just received the statements for my financial aid offer from school after billing- and it’s basically exactly enough to cover my tuition for school with no extra. It’s doable with my savings but will be very very tight especially towards the end of the program. How are CRNAs going through school without working at all? My loans at this point would not have allowed me to do that. I feel like from other CRNAs I’ve heard “don’t worry about the loans, the money is there and you can pay it back” but I am not understanding where people are getting these student loans from? Are they federal loans? Private loans? If I even wanted to take more loans out at some point to help with expenses what would I do?

    Advice for CRNA

    Sure absolutely. Im willing to take the courses- but I’ve gotten mixed answers from schools on undergrad retakes versus graduate courses. I got my bsn in four years married then divorced, having a baby, and working full time nights and my grades reflect that. Being said- I can’t redo my entire undergrad. I know I can retake basic science courses and make As- but is it better to show I can take graduate level courses and score high versus redoing a basic chem? Im willing to put the work and effort in but want to spend that wisely

    Advice for CRNA

    I have applied to a couple schools recently and quickly realized my GPA is completely subpar. I am waiting to hear back from TWU and Newman who I have spoken with a lot. I am starting a graduate level chem/phys for anesthesia and plan on taking another science class to boost my science gpa. My overall GPA is 3.1 with a science GPA 2.5. After retaking these classes I will have a science GPA of 3.3. I have 2 years experience in a CVICU with post open heart, EVMO specialist, LVADs, and everything in between. I scored a 300 on GRE and will also retake to see if I can get higher. I volunteer with a mobile healthcare clinic and am on the unit based council participating in new protocols and research for unit and patient improvement. Any advice? I was denied two interviews specifically for my GPA which I knew going in would be a problem. I got married, worked full time night shift as a tech, had a baby, and divorced all in my undergrad but without skipping a beat in nursing school to get my bachelors. Should i I take more science classes? Math classes? My concern is I can retake as many undergrad classes but I can’t re-do four years and come out with a 3.8 GPA.
