CRNAs: those of you who made it through the grueling process of becoming a CRNA, do you feel it was worth it? I’m asking in terms of quality of life, finance, respect. I am currently 25 y/o working in an MICU at level 1 trauma center downtown Chicago. Seriously considering applying to CRNA schools in Illinois within the next 1-2 years. Thank you in advance for feedback.

I will....have to let you know. I'm in first year, have several left, but I can tell you that i LOVE what I'm learning. And I start clinical later this year so once I get into that, hopefully I love that too.

 

Also, props to offlabel, I about spit out my green tea because of your comment, that was pretty hilarious...😂

I wouldn't have been anything else. The hardest thing I've ever done but also the most rewarding.

That is great, I hope that I feel the same way when I am in your position.

It is a very rewarding career from what I gather, and an amazing time to get in on the profession with the current forecast in healthcare. Lots of room for growth and expansion.

I follow your youtube channel Bluebolt, great content man I hope you get some free time on your hands in the future to update the channel. You must be pretty close to finish at this point.

Yes, an MSN is more than a BSN.  I can't imagine any school not accepting an MSN, which is higher-than BSN
