Aurora’s Answer

You'll want to enroll in a nursing program. CRNAs require an advanced nursing degree.

Emily’s Answer

You will need to complete your BSN.(bachelors of science in nursing). You could complete your RN in person and then complete your BSN online if finances dictate working.

Hi Aurora, I advice you to focus on science classes such as Biology, Chemistry, and Statistics.
You might have to start with general classes such as Math, Health, and English and that's fine, but when you have electives try to choose science classes.

Justin’s Answer

I had the opportunity to interact with a CRNA when doing my OR time for paramedic school. It seems like people had already said that you need your BSN first, which is true. I am sure you will gain connections in school that will help you on your path. As a specific note, the CRNA told me that he worked in an ICU right out of college. It seems like the CRNA programs usually require years of nursing in some sort of high-level/busy areas. He told me he was an odd case, only having one year of experience as an RN, but it shows that it is possible to obtain quickly. Good luck
