You can google ‘CRNA schools by state’ and try to find something in your area.
There are many variables. Are you able to keep your child in the home you mortgage and relocate only yourself for school? Is there someone to take of the kid at your current home, or are you a single parent and the child comes with you?
It Seems that most people have to relocate to find a school they qualify for that will also accept them. You may be able to find and be accepted by a local program, but due to the nature of difficulty in being accepted by a university, people often relocate wherever they get accepted. I have heard of one parent relocating for a program while the other parent stays back.
Taking a nine-year-old could be difficult unless you have help living with you that could take care of the child (take to school, functions, Doctor, Feeding meals, etc). Many Programs also require that you relocate for the program and then relocate (sometimes multiple times) to different states during certain semesters to fulfil cases needed to graduate. It’s normal for Programs to contract with hospitals in neighboring states and send students out to practice for 6-12 weeks at a time then come back to main campus. You’ll be moving there and back, so a child in school might have issues with that.
Furthermore, you typically cannot work during the program, so plan to live on savings, inheritance, student loans, grants, credit cards, Sugga momma, or a combination of the aforementioned. I’ll likely sell my home and use the equity to live and not work for a few years. Then I’ll have to mortgage another property when I’m done with the program and making money again. I won’t be able to keep up my mortgage and do not want to risk losing my house all together. I have no kids, so the wife and dog are just gonna get dragged along with me.... wifey is a trooper and supportive so that goes a long way for my situation.
Everybody has a unique situation. I’m sure people in your situation have done it, somewhere, but you’ll likely need some help... I know I would..
