Requirements And Work Environment

Because an RN needs to be accepted into a school that teaches nurse anesthesia courses, the CRNA, Master’s Degree program requires that you have clinical experience. In most cases you are required to only have one year of work experience as a RN, but because the applications far outnumber the space available at any school the number of years needed in the field grows to 7 seven years in many instances. The quickest way to gain acceptance in a nurse anesthesia program is to work as a surgical nurse or work in acute care.

CRNA’s administer more than half of the anesthesia administered annually. For the same expenditure, for every one anesthesiologist that is educated, eight certified registered nurse anesthetist can be educated. To keep cost from soaring more and more, medical institutions are utilizing the expertise of the CRNA. Because the CRNA salary is one-third of an anesthesiologists and they are able to handle most operations and procedures that required anesthesia. It is likely that this profession will have continued astronomical growth in the future.
