  1. Can you complete a Chemistry minor at the same time as a BSN?

    You can get a minor if you want. For med school you'll also need to take physics which is not part of nursing. You can always take those classes as electives. You will likely be taking more credits than needed to graduate but if you want to apply to ...
  2. How To Get Shadowing Experience

    Thanks newmail! How'd it go when you called?
  3. How To Get Shadowing Experience

    Does anyone have any tips on how I can shadow a CRNA? I don't know any personally and just started working at a new hospital so my contacts are limited. Is it appropriate to just go to the department and ask? Thanks in advance for any input or advi...
  4. CRNA- ICU experience

    Wow you're quite nasty in tone. Anyways, I'm not sure what is confusing you. Per Albany, they do rank ICUs in order of preference. Per SUNY downstate, they do NOT accept neuro. Not all ICUs are treated equally for all schools. This really isn't compl...
  5. CRNA- ICU experience

    So this is straight from Albany's website: "in order of preference, include the following: Surgical Intensive Care, Post-Open Heart, Coronary Care, Medical Intensive Care, Post-Anesthesia, and Pediatric or Neonatal Intensive Care. Those who have expe...
  6. CRNA- ICU experience

    How can you say this when there are schools that don't accept neuro or say it is last on their list? I work neuro now and am switching because of this. It is very school dependent and yes, to some schools the unit does matter.
  7. CRNA- ICU experience

    It may depend on the school. In the Tristate area we have some schools that don't accept neuro icu experience and others that actually state it is last on the list.
  8. SUNY Downstate CRNA Program

    Too bad. I'm guessing columbia will get even more competitive now!
  9. SUNY Downstate CRNA Program

    I've heard rumors that this school either will close or not get re-accredited. I noticed the school only received two year accreditation, ending in 2017. Does anyone know anything about this or if there was some problem that did not allow the school ...
  10. SUNY Downstate CRNA Program Accreditation

    I've heard rumors that this school either will close or not get re-accredited. I noticed the school only received two year accreditation, ending in 2017. Does anyone know anything about this or if there was some problem that did not allow the school ...
  11. Hmmm. I kinda thought the second one would have to focus on researching reasons why the unit may not be meeting standard, then developing policy, and then implementing. How would you know what indicators need improving without doing some research fir...
  12. compensation poll

    Yes. .73/hr Yes. .77/hr Yes. About .75 per step (super easy to get)
  13. Concept of anesthesia

    I think the poster is just asking for help understanding the question, not asking for the answer. I think the term "concept of anesthesia" is a little awkward. If I were to guess, I'd assume they are asking you to write about what anesthesia means t...
  14. Why or why not CRNA?

    Where are you getting this from? Pay is 150-180 starting as far as I know (on the higher end in rural areas) and all schools I've checked out in metropolitan areas have a 100% employment rate after graduation. COA posts these. Where I work for exam...
  15. Why or why not CRNA?

    To actually answer your question, I can tell you why I choose nursing/CRNA (applying this year). I love biology, physiology, pharmacology and medicine. I love working with patients. Healthcare is just what I'm meant for and have always done. The pay...
