I am currently a nursing student and will be graduating next summer in August 2008 with an AS in nursing.. my ultimate goal is to become a crna. I plan to graduate with my AS in nursing and obtain my RN license, do the RN-BSN 2 1/2 yrs online program while working as a RN and at the same time get my ICU experience in.. hopefully I will have ATLEAST 2 years of ICU experience by the time I get done with my BSN.. and then will apply to a CRNA program.. I have the next 4-5 years planned out to a tee..
and hopefully everything will follow through as planned.
well, my intial question/concern is this..
I have been doing extensive research up until now and something that's still vague to me is exactly what mathematics courses are needed to be completed prior to getting accepted into a crna program. I would like to make sure I am in the right path as far as required prereqs. Granted, I do know that every program have there own set of standards and requirments.. but surely there are BASIC mathematics prereqs needed/required for ALL crna programs right??
Regarding some of the ADVANCED science courses that are needed/covered in BSN AND CRNA Programs, such as organic chem and physics (if that is even required), do these science courses require certain levels of math to be completed?
I guess you can tell I am a little confused about the science and mathematics part.
I'm just concerned that the BSN program I will be taking in the near future will not include certain math or science classes needed for CRNA programs.. and you know how a lot of science and math classes are foundational.. requiring each be completed before being able to move on/advance to the next higher course.. I would hate to find out, at the end of my BSN, that I am missing something.
If somebody would kindly give me a general overview of the mathematics and science courses that will be covered in a BSN AND CRNA program.. that would be GREAT!! If somebody could help me I would greatly appreciate it!! Thanks in advance!!
