If it helps, I put him through his schooling before I went back, where I worked and he just went to school.  Its building a future together and supporting each other.

DreameRN,

I'm an accelerated BSN student right and now want to pursue CRNA. I'm curious to know, what were your stats like for CNA school? (GPA, experience, etc) and a little more personal, how are you managing the program in terms of living and finances. That's probably mine, and others, biggest concerns. Any insight is highly appreciated and congrats!

Mattk853,

There are plenty of threads devoted to “stats” for CRNA school. I created this thread asking CURRENT CRNA’s and SRNA’s about their opinions on the field. Please do not thread hijack.

And BTW don’t you think you’re placing the cart in front of the horse here? Focus on passing the NCLEX and then establishing yourself in a high acuity ICU dude. Both of which are not guaranteed feats.

Man, happy Monday, go back to sleep and try waking up on the right side of the bed. I was trying to look for stats but had no luck so thought i'd reach out to others who JUST RECENTLY applied. Things change when there's threads from 4 years ago. 

It's not placing a cart in front of the horse when you're planning your future. It's how you set up for success. I kindly had a response from someone who is willing to give insight. Don't be an internet troll. Best of luck with your successes with that kind of attitude. lol

Mattk853,

 

Surely I am trying to educate you on allnurses etiquette Matt. This is a thread that I created as a question to other active CRNA posters on allnurses. Feel free to create your own thread to gather your own information. Please do not simply post impertinent questions on an already active thread disrupting the topic and flow of my original post(get it?).

We as nurses do not get much sleep, prepare to be chronically tired when you officially become an RN:) But I will heed your advice to get some sleep after these 3 12’s in the micu and then my 8 hour shift at my per diem gig Matt.

Best of luck to you on your endeavors to pass your accelerated BSN program and then passing your NCLEX. Welcome to allnurses Matt.

well, we hardly ever hear of CRNA's leaving the profession or hating their jobs. Compare that to the reality of ICU nursing and high turnover, and that says a lot. It will be worth it.
