    Depends on the school. Most master's programs are 24-30 months. Most doctorate programs are 36 months. A list of all schools can be found here: CRNA School Search The search results include program length in months. Hope this helps!

    It took me four semesters to do prereqs. I would look at the website and see what they require. Things may have changed since I went. I didn't need a recommendation letter or volunteer experience when I applied.

    UNR did not have an examination to enroll in the nursing program. You should be able to apply after doing the core curriculum and prerequisites. I couldn't find anything about an entrance exam on their website when I looked.

    Jobs in Reno:
