    Anyone know of any bridge programs for those who already have completed Master's in Nursing w/ FNP cert track who are interested in Anesthesia?

    Hey emed... still have it, in fact it just got up to where we originally planned which is why I'm looking around at my options in case something goes haywire. If I can find a quick way from MSN/FNP to CRNA that would possibly be the most efficient way I know to replace my current income as I'm in the $$$ range of your CRNA buddy now.

    Just goto the AANA website, and research each individual school. Email the director or call them direct. YOu will find much more precise info if you approach it that way. Programs differ, some grant MSN, some MS. I suppose if you attend a MSN program you may be awarded credit for some research and theory nuring mumbo jumbo courses that are required for MSN. THe MS programs are usually not as lienent with these issues and require you to enter the program go full time and complete on schedule. Like I said just research the program and contact the director to find out whats up.
