I am currently earning my BSN and am anticipating that I will be applying to CRNA school by December 2020. I have a few semesters left before graduating and must maintain 15 credits for my university scholarship
Each semester is only a maximum of 12 credit hours, leaving me with at least 3 credit hours open to fill. I have considered taking on courses towards graduate admissions.
Most schools are requiring General Chemistry (some w/ Lab), which I haven't taken, as I was only required to complete Organic & Biochemistry (one 3 credit course that involved both Orgo and Biochem) for BSN admissions.
Most schools have different requirements than what I have had, and will have, once I graduate. Some of these include Physics, Biology w/ Lab, Chemistry with Lab, Organic Chemistry w/ Lab, Biochemistry w/ lab (the CRNA school most proximal to me requires a minimum of 4 Statistics credits along with 3 credits of courses on research methods). However, other schools requirements align with my degree pretty well and will allow me to not have to take any more classes outside of what I have already taken and will take.
Any suggestions as to what I should do? Did anyone complete their graduate admissions during their undergrad? The small handful of CRNA's that I know on a personal level completed their Nurse Anesthesia Admissions Requirements that were not taken during undergrad while working as RN's after their undergrad.
