    Why is BSN required for CRNA?

    ArmyRntoMD Just this sounds like poor research design 😉.

    Most of the class cheating??

    I want to do a coin flip. Recently I was applying to CRNA school. Someone who cheated the whole time, and got that 4.0, would get an unfair advantage, when the person who didn't cheat could be at a hypothetical disadvantage. When working at a field where lives are in our hands it is essential to know your stuff!

    I apologize for my comment and didn't realize the OP has a chemistry degree. Words for wisdom you will have to shine in other aspects. Having just your AA of nursing will put you ad a disadvantage in the application pool. I would advise to find other ways to shine and highlight yourself.

    Why is BSN required for CRNA?

    I want to start off with wishing you good luck in your journey for CRNA school. Like many other posters I find many issues with your initial statement. First yes BSN is very important and essential to become a successful SRNA student/provider. You may view these classes as useless, but they are the cornerstone of the profession. Those courses that are more then likely viewed as useless for the cornerstone courses are essential such how to critically analyze research, since the profession is built on a plethora of research. In addition, communication and collaboration is the cornerstone to create the best and safest plan of care. I will say attitude is essential to getting into CRNA programs. For every spot there is 10 applicants. If the initial attitude is the uselessness of the Bachelors degree there are 9 other people who will get that spot over you. I hesitantly would advise that is chemistry and science classes are the upmost important aspect of anesthesia you may want to consider Anesthesia Assistant over CRNA. I promise you I mean no malice or cruelness, but another profespctive form someone in the field.

    Millennial Nurses Have Issues

    Ok boomer!!!!! I see you are the issue whoever wrote this article. You are creating a divide that doesn't need to be created. We can also say Boomer nurses are a burden to us. * you don't adapt to technology well burdening us millennial nurses to help you *you steal all the holidays off leaving us younger nurses to work the holidays *you steal all the summer vacations preventing me to have time with my family *You tend to be stagnant in your practice and resist change stagnating nursing care and positive patient outcomes!!!! Glad I am attending graduate school and am out of the bedside 🙂

    Help with new grad RN orientation/Added shifts

    I am sorry this person is having issues and ICU doesn't seem like a good fit for her at this point of her career (not as an absolute but maybe time to get med/surg or step down maybe a better fit). I hope your facility is listening to preceptors unlike the hospital I work at. One person we had was unsuccessful and when preceptors expressed concern about her ability they fired the preceptors. Well she went through all the main preceptors and ultimately ended up on the floor.

    UNE O-Chem Final Exam

    I really hope if they are not curving either they really stepped up the game of their lectures or lowered the standard of what they expect students to do on the final. I used Chads videos and they were super helpful as a supplement.

    Anyone apply to St. Mary's CRNA 2019?

    Sorry Lifelong & Turkeylips I got denied twice before getting accepted. Getting denied truly sucks, but can be a truly humbling experience. You both sound very qualified and sound like great candidates. When I got denied I got suggested to apply to apply again and/or to other schools because your experience, certifications and/or essay may be more appealing to where they are looking for.

    Anyone apply to St. Mary's CRNA 2019?

    I am sorry Turkeylips. Is this the first time you applied? Putting yourself out there and getting denied is a hard process. To put a positive spin you made it through the first round atleast. A great aspect of St. Marys is you can e-mail to get feedback to make your application stronger. Best of luck to you
