I want to be a CRNA soooo bad I can't STAND it. In the same boat. My school required microbiology or chemistry. I chose microbiology. Also, my science GPA is 2.5 gasp. So, pretty much any science class will help at this point. 2.982 nursing, 3.4 overall. In college I was on the board of directors for NSNA and worked part-time three jobs to graduate loan free. And, planned a wedding/got married while being involved in just about EVERY club and organization. At the time, as long as I passed nursing school I was happy. Did not know at the time the excitement of the OR; or the challenge and fun of watching over people during procedures. I took Barry university Intro to anesthesia class. It has been good. CCRN-CSC certified. Working in one of the largest ICU's in country/good reputation for 4yrs now. I am a leader on the unit (precept, involved in other things, trained on everything- transplant, ECMO, TAH, LVAD, RVAD, PEDS. Shadowed 17hrs so far AND LOVED IT!!! Just got to hope for the best with the grades thing. I'm planning to take the organic Chem I with lab through UNE and go from there. I read some blogs that said the UNE intro chem classes are just as hard as the organic chem class (which is graded on a curve) They told me I can take it without meeting the pre-reqs since I'm just taking the one class. Figure at this point I have nothing to lose and since I will only be taking the one class ( I have always been one for risk within reason)I think I'm going to take that organic Chem I class. Then--- Apply and see how badly they rip me to shreds for my past. cry, cry. Anyway, BACK TO STUDYING. Good luck with your adventure!!!!
