I am currently an undergraduate student at George Mason majoring in Neuroscience. I transferred to there earlier this year from Old Dominion (VA). I will be graduating next Fall and I am interested in becoming a CRNA. My current GPA is a 2.8 and my science GPA is a 3.01. I still have this semester and two more to complete. I am planning to apply to an accelerated nursing program in a year or so upon completion of the nursing prerequisites.
Does anyone have any recommendations as to how I would stand among other applicants? I don’t plan on applying to CRNA school for a few years, but I really want to prepare myself for it. Would my GPA for my first degree be considered, or would the nursing GPA have higher regard when applying for CRNA school?
Thank you very much in advance for any input.

With the glut of CRNA schools, it is not a problem to get into a CRNA school with almost any GPA. Gone are the days of the competitive nature of admission to a Nurse Anesthesia program. I would not worry about a GPA. If you want to get in.. you will… somewhere. It’s no longer about the ” Best and the Brightest”.
