    CRNA vs AA?

    The problem with AAs being militant and wanting to break free is that they can not do this without going back to school and switching professions. They literally cannot practice independent of a anesthesiologist.

    MH may be a good scenario to work through. Many of us have done tons of code drills and real codes.

    Future looks bleak for CRNAs

    With the political nature of this comment you will catch heat from most every CRNA you will meet unless they just don't care about their livelihood. In the CRNA world you will see us compare ourselves to them all the time. Another thing to remember when discussing CRNA school.

    Correct. There's nothing wrong with the term nurse but I would never leave out the credentials of a CRNA. I would also also add that having a great GPA and experience is only part of the puzzle. If you don't interview well then they could care less about who you are or were. You could also get through most of your CRNA program and be removed. Some programs will remove poor performers and people with poor attitudes. Many people have been released after making it most of the way through.

    Make sure not to say things like this if you do get an interview and find yourself in a position to get into school. You may also need to humble your physician roots while working as a nurse. It may be a bitter pill to swallow if a physician tells you how to proceed while treating a patient and you do not agree.

    That's the volunteer experience Before CRNA

    For what reason? To stand out? Shadow a CRNA with free time. Find out what you are getting into.

    High School GPA?

    I may have raised it to 2.75 by graduation. Didn't matter.

    There's are now studies pointing to the fact that many CRNAs will retire in the next 10 plus years.

    ADN vs. BSN - patient mortality rates

    I have meet diploma nurses and LPNs I wouldn't trust with a corpse. I have also met some of the smartest nurses who are diploma nurses, ADNs, LPNs and BSNs. Not everyone with a degree is the greatest nurse that ever lived. Also, the hospitals are pushing for higher degrees on their nurses. It's not the universities mandating this but I understand at the end of the day it's about money. I will also point out that many hospitals will pay their nurses tuition to get their BSN.

    Route Guidance for BSN/RN wanting CRNA

    I agree with the above advice. Also, if VCU is your goal then you will need to probably raise your GPA. Call or meet with their program director and ask what will have more weight. You may need to enroll into a MSN program and raise your GOA. You can get into a school with a 3.0 but I believe that VCU is highly ranked school and will have a higher average from the students they decide to take.

    People being spiteful about grades?

    Pick one or study less.
