Hi! We have an attorney from Colorado in my accelerated nursing class at Duke this year, so you're not alone.
I am a nontraditional student myself; I left clinical research to enter nursing school.
Contact schools you would be interested in attending and find out what classes they require as prerequisites that you don't already have - chances are it's going to be stuff like anatomy, physiology, chemistry, microbiology - science stuff. Then check out those classes at either a local community college or university. I took mine at a local community college because I could take the classes at night after work.
That's where I would start.
You could also contact your local hospital to find out if they will let pre-nursing students shadow other nurses on the floor - I would call the nursing management office for the hospital and ask to speak to someone in nurse recruitment to find out what the hospital policy is on that. I also highly recommend volunteering at a hospital; there are plenty of patient-focused things for volunteers to do. I worked with Duke Medical Center's Rock-A-Baby program - we would sit with babies and little kids in the Neonatal Intensive Care Unit (NICU) and the Pediatric Intensive Care Unit (PICU), and also go give parents on the pediatric bone marrow transplant unit a break (those kids have to have someone with them 24/7, and usually it's one parent left to stay with the child in the room) to go eat, or run errands, or whatever. You could do this for a couple of hours a week, or just whenever you could. I've also heard of folks volunteering with patient transport or as ER runners. You just want to be sure you can talk about patient exposure in your application; you don't want them to put you to work in the hospital gift shop, or something equally far removed from real patients. When we were given a tour of Duke Med Center by Nursing Recruitment during orientation, I was recognized by the nurse manager giving us the tour because she had seen me/heard my name on the floor. (As a lawyer, I know you know the value of networking, no matter how small the opportunity.)
You could also volunteer at a nursing home. Duke was very big on volunteering, and they were quite pleased when I told them about my time at the medical center. In fact, I was specifically asked about it in my interview.
All the CRNAs I have met while I've been in school have been great; very helpful and always ready to talk about their profession. You could probably ring up their specific office at a local hospital and talk to one directly. Heck, that might even be a way to get a shadowing opportunity.
Good luck to you; keep us posted on your progress and your decisions.
