I am trying to become a crna. This video was a great overview of the profession. Are the requerments to become a crna different if you become a crna via the military, is it quicker?
You will still need a BSN and a minimum of 1 year of experience in a critical care setting before you would be considered for acceptance into a CRNA program through the military. The military has already moved to the DNP, and the program length is about 30 months, full time. You must additionally meet the service requirements and commitments to the US military, and in exchange you will be given free tuition and full time salary (based on rank, I believe) for the duration of your education. CRNAs are highly specialized with extensive knowledge and training, there is no way around the time commitment it will take you to become a CRNA. Best of luck to you.
