    best/most affordable CRNA path for a career change

    Realize you could *never* get accepted into CRNA school and have to have a career as an RN. Your foundation as a CRNA is nursing so if nursing doesn't appeal to you, I'd consider a different career to get you the money you want.

    What makes a good candidate

    2yrs ICU here-first @ Medical/Surgical ICU Level 3 Hospital, second @ Trauma/Neuro ICU Level 1 Trauma Center. Applied to 2 local programs for the first time this year and accepted into one. I think different schools look at certain parts. The school I was accepted at really focused on science courses-mainly chemistry. Since I have BSN and BA Biology/Chemistry, I knew I would have a stronger application there than at the other school which focused on experience (many CVICU nurses were accepted). Research the schools and see where your best chance is. Good luck.

    I have 2.5yrs ICU experience, science GPA of around 3.5. I have a Bachelor of Biology/minor Chemistry and BSN, which fulfilled all the recommended science courses from St Mary's. I think my science background really helped.

    Student Loans

    How much do you *plan* to take out in regards to student loans? Graduate school students can take out $20,500/yr in Federal Unsub Loans and additional in PLUS Loans. My program costs les than the limit for the Unsub Loans per year but I'm trying to figure out living expenses and how I will cover those. What do you expect to pay for tuition/school related and living expenses?

    Current or Past St Mary's of MN Students

    Hello, I'm hoping to reach out to current or past students of St Mary's of MN (twin cities campus) students. I was recently accepted and would love to hear about the day-to-day life while in the program. If you could PM me or we could exchange email addresses, that would be great and appreciated! Thanks!

    For those whose status changed, any news so far? A few have gotten denials without their status changing so curious if you were accepted!
