    @Bonnie Bailey, You said that the student is required to find a proctor for the ICCC course. I was wondering what the requirements for the Proctor were. For example, do they have to be a professor? And that is such a great resource. Did they give you any nuggets of advice? And thing they felt they did to stand out? Also, did they mention anything about the family life situation? I am newly married and want to set up realistic expectations for my wife if I get in but honestly, I don't know what to expect. I understand I will be very busy studying but outside of that, I have no idea. All my experience is with the marine corps as a single enlisted NCO. What made everyone want to purse CRNA anyways? For me, I was drawn to the high standards that are held by CRNAs as a profession and their focus on science. Also, anesthesia is fascinating in its self. You could spend a lifetime learning about it. I also am drawn to the independence of a CRNA especially in the military.

    Hey @Bonnie Bailey and @HowdyHowdy great to meet ya'll! The ICCC course is just so convenient! I am in the same boat as HowdyHowdy. I took an Introductory Chemistry course during my prerequisites so it just makes sense. I am planning on applying this cycle and if I am not selected going back and taking all the other chemistry courses. @HowdyHowdy I feel like they will include all of your nursing courses for the BSN GPA. To my understanding in LVN school, you get all the actual "NURSING" course and then the BSN is the research, leadership, and executive topics. Today I got the ETS 3 pack study guide and the "5 lbs" book of study questions. Hopefully, this will be enough to score well. I am worried about the GRE but I feel like with any test if I study enough I can get a fair score. @Bonnie Bailey, what is the criteria for a preceptor just out of curiosity? I emailed the director last week and she said someone with a strong academic record 3.8 or greater should be fine taking a community college course and that those below a 3.8 would benefit taking a graduate course to prove their academic ability. I know from reading past threads that they have seen this course many times lol. Does anyone know anyone who has actually attended the school?

    Also, I was attempting to join the reserves but changed my mind to go for the CRNA programs so most of my packet as far as the Army is complete. I have spoken with my recruiter ALOT about this program so I may be able to answer some questions about what I have learned and about MEPS. Let me know if yall have any questions. I am really excited about this opportunity to network and pursue this program.

    Hey everyone. My name is Ryan. I will be applying for the 2021 cohort. I am a prior service Marine infantryman. I deployed to Afghan in 2012 and Japan 2014. I got out in 2015 and went to Nursing school on my G.I Bill. I've been a nurse for one year at a Level 1 Trauma Center in the ER but I am transferring hopefully to the Trauma ICU this November. For everyone who wants to talk stats here are mine thus far. Experience by commission: 1 year ER and 1 year and 2 Months Trauma ICU. I spoke to the program director and was told that ER experience counts for the Critical Care experience but I know I need ICU knowledge so I am going to make my year in the ICU count. GPA: 3.82. I am currently taking two MSN courses and I will take the Iowa Central Community College Intro to Organic and Biochem. Hopefully, all these will be A's. How was this course? Any advice? Certifications: I have my CEN and TCRN. Plan to take my CCRN around April. I also have TNCC and TCAR. I will take the GRE over winter break. I have 8 weeks to study and take the test. Does anyone have any advice about the test? I am a good test taker but still nervous about it. Any study programs that ya'll used?
