Dear fellow CRNA's,
I became an RN at age 26. I'm turning 28 years old this year. I am highly interested in becoming a CRNA. But I have some doubts of going into this specialty because (1) sacrificing an income while studying full-time for the program (2) ability to pass boards, considering I have poor test-taking skills!
(3) current age.
By the time I get 2 years of ICU experience, I will be 30 yrs. old. Upon graduating from a CRNA program, I will be around 33 years old. Do you think I will be too "old" to be a CRNA?
Was hoping to hear from current CRNA's on what kinds of sacrifices were made to get into this specialty and advice on how to successfully graduate from such a rigorous program?
Thank you very much for your time and efforts in helping me out!
