4 year degree preference?

Specialties CRNA


Hello, I am new to this site and new to nursing....in fact, I just started my nursing program this month.

My goal is to become a Nurse Anesthetist, and I was wondering if anyone could tell me if there is preference for acceptance into anesthetism programs given to nurses who received their BSN from a university as opposed to nurses who have undergone an RN to BSN program? The reason I ask is that I am pursuing an ADN at my community college, and I intend to earn my BSN through a bridge program after graduation. I would have liked to have gone to a university for a 4 year program, but I didn't have the funds, plus I wanted to start working as a nurse as soon as possible (I've had to move back home in order to attend the ADN program full time).

I was just wondering if it will matter where and how I obtained my BSN when it comes time to apply to schools for anesthetism programs. Any info. appreciated.

It doesn't matter! That's the same route many of us have taken. Good luck.
