Travel Nursing Before Applying to CRNA school

Posted

Specializes in ICU. Has 4 years experience.

Hello,

I am looking into Travel Nursing before applying to CRNA school. However, I heard that schools do not prefer travel nurses due to not being "consistent" or not at the same hospital for the one year requirement since travel nurses tend to not get the sickest assignments.

Any CRNAs or SRNAS out there that can give suggestions or advice? Thank you!

If you have done two years in the ICU, you can travel. But then you are then qualified already for CRNA school. Not getting something.

I would like to earn some money before applying to CRNA school so I know I will be financially prepared. However, I just don't know if CRNA schools will accept travelers....

You should talk to the schools. And look for students in the CRNA forum here. If you filled the year of critical care requirement (two years to travel), you should be OK. When you have filled the requirement for applying to school, why not apply and if accepted ask for a deferment?
