Getting my masters in nurse anestetics?

Getting my masters in nurse anestetics? Topic: Hospital case statements
June 19, 2019 / By Darby
Question: i want to become a CRNA when i grow up. In order to go back to school to get it, i have to have at least 1 year in critical care as an RN. They probably wont let me start off in critical care right after i get my BSN so my question is when will i be able to do the 1 year in critical care because I want to move on and complete my masters in anestetics ASAP. Also what are the requirments to getting into nurse anestetics school? Is it tough? How many percent of people get in? What is the starting salary?

Your best bet is to get in a small, or large hospital that has a lot of turnover. What that means is that more people are quitting frequently, opening up more positions in different departments. This means you wait less for getting on the list to critical care. It took my wife 2 years of waiting until she got into the ICU. CRNA is a very demanding and tough degree to do. Chemistry better be like breathing to you, and only about 30-40% get in, mostly because most who apply are not qualified to get in. Most of the time as well, people have to wait a year, and they will get in on the next attempt. This is obviously a job that is in high demand because of the work hours and the pay. Three people in my family are CRNAs and they all hate it, but they are on call 24/7 365, and make more in a year than I will make in a lifetime. Confusing the statement as to why they hate it if they really only work 3 days a week usually and on a case by case basis. Odd. My wife wanted to do CRNA too but went on to be a nurse practitioner instead. She really loves that. Good luck!

You need to hurry up and get into a masters nurse anesthetist program because I was told BY a nurse anesthetist that soon it will be a PhD program! Meaning MORE college required and harder to become soon.

Albina Originally Answered: ER Nurse? ADN vs. BSN?
The difference between the ADN and the BSN is one thing and that one thing is 'nursing theory.' In fact, in my opinion, an ADN gets more clinical experience than a BSN student. Most of the associate degree nursing students I have witnessed go right to the field and get clinical experience as opposed to heavily weighted classroom experience. This is good in general practice but when you want to look into management, promotion, and graduate school a BSN is the better route. While an ADN can certainly be in a managerial position, a BSN will look more favorable and yes they do teach more leadership and managerial skills to a BSN student. A BSN program will dabble into community health, research and nursing leadership while most ADN programs do not. People in my BSN program always hate the “extra busy work we have to do” and would rather cut to the chase of being an RN. We’ll write papers in ethics, leadership, critical thinking, etc on a regular basis. But truthfully, it widens our knowledge and skills but it does not improve our experience. Right out of the gate a typical ADN will have more experience than a BSN. However, after 6-12 months on the job that’s not the case anymore and a BSN will have the education and the experience. Lastly, I would never say a BSN is better than an ADN or vice-versa. I’ll take an ADN 100% of the time if they’re a better person who cares about what they do and knows what they are doing. Sure, a BSN may have more college but you’ll learn more the first year of working than you did in your entire nursing program. More importantly look at these facts: -An ADN was supposed to be a temporary fix to the nursing shortage we have in the U.S. They had a plan to get rid of the program(s) but still have a gap to fill so they have remained. -An ADN is never looked upon more favorably than a BSN, if anything they are sometimes looked down on -You cannot go to graduate school with an ADN -You will receive better pay with a BSN over an ADN (minimal, but still a difference) -An ADN and a BSN take the same NCLEX, an RN is an RN -A BSN simply opens more doors than an ADN -Time and money are also a factor Hope that helps. I say BSN and I’m not saying that because it’s the route I took. I just feel it is a better route. And don’t worry, the nursing instructors will tell you that BSN’s are God’s gift to the world! They will also attempt to make you feel less than dirt too and treat you like a borderline mentally challenged person with little to no life experiences -which makes for fun times in clinical and class! That seems to be the consensus at 5 different nursing programs in the area I’m from. All of us seemed to agree. Godspeed in your endeavors.

Yes the BSN degree prepares you for management but if you plan on never doing that and want to work solely as a RN in the clinical setting with patients...the ADN is the way too go. The BSN will provide you will benefits and make you look for desirable when hiring but it really depends on the nurse manager. Here is a video on with a nurse explaining the difference between an ADN or BSN...she explains it very well: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=n2qAT7BQ...
