  1. How about the requirements?

    Interesting topic here.

    As many know, the AANA says on the website "one year of acute care experience". While this is defined by ER, PACU, ICU, Flight Nursing, the AANA (in its wisdom) allowed for flexibility so that every applicant could be evaluated based ont heir experience and merits.

  5. So Why CRNA and not MD/DO

    Well... interesting story.

    I am an A type personality. It seems i cannot settle with "soldier" I always want to be the general and that is what attracted me to the Physician profession. Im sure alot of you feel the same.

    In anycase, after much discussion with many physician friends (most of which said they wouldnt do it again) I decided that before i could make a decision i had to have the options. So i did the med pre reqs and got in.

    I turned it down for ...
