  1. Hi,

    I saw your post in the NYU ABSN Spring 2021 group about not attending NYU for an accelerated program. I was just wondering if you had heard anything about concordias program?

      I had one friend that went there but she never told me much. Pace is very good. Mount saint vincent is not the best program also but it is affordable my friend is there and it is better than NYU. PACE IS AMAZING BECAUSE IT IS 3 semesters 20k each. My teacher from NYU sent her son there, that says a lot LOL. NYU gets people on their names. Jobs don't care about that, connections and networking is what matters. NYU graduates huge cohorts of 250 plus kids every semester they care less about the student and more about the money

    CRNA GPA

    @SICUMurse123 @Defibn' I got in A in pharm and really was the only nursing class besides pysch that I really enjoyed studying. I took Chem before I knew what I wanted to do for my original degree and honestly if I retook it again feel like I would do way better. I just cant see myself doing 3 years in the ICU and starting CRNA school at 29 finishing at 32 it was hard for me to work during this accelerated program that I am in and I can't imagine doing that for 3 more years of no work what so ever. All the CRNA's at my job tell me its worth the sacrifice but to be honest my accelerated program was a bit pricy so I really need to see and pay stub to see if its actually worth the sacrifice. There's nothing wrong with being a OR nurse but I can't also see myself staying at the same pay and same job for more than 4 years. When it comes to being extremely successful nothing comes easy and I am aware of that. I think I just need to here of more nursing of different routes of success whether being an NP or CEO of a hospita/ administrator than just CRNA because I feel like thats the only pitch they give nurses on the highest they can ever be pay wise

    CRNA GPA

    Hey I am in accelerated program at NYU heading into my last semester looking to finish with an 3.7 BSN GPA. However in my first degree I semi took school seriously finishing with a 3.44 GPA with an A plus in Anatomy and Phys 1 B in Anatomy and Phys 2 B- in Micro Bio and a C in Chemistry 1. The thing with CRNA school is that is competitive and to be honest if it didn't exist I would be an Operating room nurse without a question. I don't feel like its worth the gamble of being an ICU nurse (which I don't really want to do) to become a CRNA. I work in the operating room already as nursing assistant and I get told everyday by management, CRNA, perfusionist, nurses etc to do CRNA. It's not my nursing school GPA I am worried about being that I even got A's in both patho and pharm its my undergrad GPA. Personally I can only see myself as a ICU nurse for a year if I was to do CRNA, which probably won't happen because I would need to retake a couple of undergrad science courses. I am in need of advice, is my GPA good as stands? Or am I looking at 2-3 years in the ICU in order to get into CRNA school?
