Depends on a lot of things... There are online programs that are faster than regular ones. And also cheaper.

hey, Im a prospective nursing student and I was wondering.. How is the Nurse anthesthetist job outlook? I've heard certain things about anesthesists vs. nurses anesthesists. Some people say it is better to be a nurse rather than a physician because your job is more stable.
I've heard that you no longer have to be supervised in the OR. So what is the purpose of an anesthesiologist? It seems like the nurses will soon take over as the years go by. Hospitals would rather pay a nurse's pay for an anesthesiologist's job. Makes sense.

Ya I am actually hearing that BSN might be the requirement for the RN license in the next few years. I am not sure if that is completely true but it is something a nursing director told me.

I have a few friends that work in hospitals, and I myself am a paramedic and RN student. Pretty much the advice I get is just volunteer like crazy. Just go in like it is your real job, get to know people and boom you get hired no problem. That is something most people won't do, and that is why they get beat by people that will do it. It is a pain to get a job right out of school at the moment BSN or no BSN. It's all about that smile and creativity.
