Question about crna/np school

Hi all, I am about to start a nursing program. I was formerly a pre med student, and I remember how a fairly strong emphasis was placed on volunteer hours and extracurriculars to boost a med school application significantly . Can the same be said about applications for crna or np school? And to the same extent or not?

Not really, no. For CRNA and some NP specialties (NNP, PMHNP, ACNP) work experience as a RN is pretty much the most important thing. And for some NP programs, you just send in your application (which is really just writing a check) and, viola, you're an NP.

I agree with others above, I don't think much attention is paid to volunteering or extra-curricular activities. For NP and CRNA programs, type and number of years of RN experience are paramount.
