To find out about the USAGPAN military crna school I would go to:
I think the site is being updated right now, because I haven't been able to access it for a few days.
This program is ranked 2nd in the nation and provides unequaled experience as an autonomous CRNA. It does require a military service obligation of 4.5 yrs, which could (probably) include a deployment---where you will get incredible experience.
If I remember correctly, you need to have:
-GRE 1000 or better
-At least 1 yrs experience in Critical care (or ED)
-Gain admission to Northeastern University
-Gain admission to Active Duty Army
-Be accepted by LTHET (the long term health education funding program) (done with active duty application packet)
-As of this month, the word on the street is......you need to be 42 or YOUNGER to apply to Active Duty Nursing. (this just changed......but they may accept age waivers again ---who knows?)
This program has the extra benefit of PAYING you to attend school, and there is NO tuition. I would definitely check it out........it has a 30% attrition rate because it is very rigorous......it has to be. When you are deployed, you will be working long hours with little backup.
I suggest you google the other "Nursing Anesthesia website" forums.........one has a Military anesthesia forum. All your questions could be answered there.
Also check out the military forum on allnurses and search USAGPAN.
