Hello, I am a junior in high school, who has big plans on someday becoming a CRNA.
Can anyone tell me what the process is? From high school graduation and on..
I've been researching, but haven't gotten anywhere..... Thanks!

    Do some paid or volunteer work in a health care setting.

    Apply early (such as Sept.) to multiple (preferably direct entry) nursing schools.

    Take the national RN exam and graduate with a BSN.

    Work as a RN at least two to three years, preferably in a hospital. You might want to choose to work in a metropolitan area where there are some CRNA programs nearby so you don't have to keeping moving between cities.

    Apply for a number of graduate programs.

    Graduate and pass the certification exam.

    Another option: - Anesthesiologist Assistant They are licensed in 17 states and do essentially the same job with the same pay. They must be supervised by an MD whereas a CRNA does not. My daughter entered AA school directly after her undergrad and will finish in 2 yrs. Google - anesthesiologist assistant and look for schools - Emory, Case Western and two I know of. Good luck!
