    1st semester expectations

    Those are the two classes I'm happily excited about crushing! I feel like barfing when I think about our clinicals that start at the end of September.

    Is my school the only one?

    Yeah, my program has separated 1-3 credit hour courses for each semester. I'm taking five 2-credit-hour courses in the fall.

    Looking ahead to CRNA Med School

    You should do some research and shadowing in each field. The paths for CRNA and med school are very different. If you're set on med school, you want a major that will include the prerequisite courses, but you also want a degree that'll lead to a job,...
