Take your nursing career to the next level – the highest domain of nursing — and begin a career in the challenging and exciting field of nurse anesthesia. The Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist (CRNA) is a recognized, professional occupation continuing to become more and more important in a competitive, high-tech, and demanding medical field.

Many practice settings are available to the CRNA. Options include working in a team approach by joining a group of physicians and other CRNAs which provide anesthesia in several facilities, working solely with CRNAs in more rural settings, being a solo practitioner, or becoming a locum tenens (traveling) CRNA.
