Hello all,

I am hoping for everyone's sincere input on this one...

I really want to be a CRNA. I am worried though that my grades are not good enough though. Although, I am trying to everything I can to offset them... besides repeating my undergraduate work I guess...

I have been working in both the M/S and CVICU at Johns Hopkins for 2.5 year now (since graduating from nursing school), our ICU's are very high acuity with Heart Transplants, Total Artificial Hearts, VADs, CRRT, IABPs, SWANs and vasopressors galore, etc... THE BAD NEWS IS my state school undergrad GPA is 3.1... since then I have worked my tail off... I am a CCRN... I have taken 4 graduate level Nursing courses... A's in all of them to prove I can work hard... I have taught new grads, experienced nurses, and helped open new floors...

So... what are my chances of getting in? I haven't taken the GRE exam yet... Anyone recommend a prep course? What else can I do to increase my odds?

I will be able to obtain very strong letters of recommendation and I think that I would interview well and would make a great CRNA, but I am afraid that with my low GPA, my application I will be quickly skipped over...

Really what can I do? I appreciate any and all input!!

Thanks,

J
