i must be mistaken. i read the requirements for a nurse of anesthesia and it said you had to be a rn in the icu for one year. about two threads before mine people were posting that they had been in icu from about 3-10 years. but why are people waiting so long to go to crna school? why not go after the first year? is it most likely that you will not get into a school with only one year experience as an rn in the icu?
