    Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists (CRNAs) belong to one of the most in-demand Advanced Practice specialties in the field. As such, they are also the highest-paid nurses.  In fact, the latest Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS) reports the average income of a nurse anesthetist to be $169,450 per year, with some CRNAs earning over $252,000 per year in Montana.

    Top earning states for CRNAs include:

    • Montana
    • Wyoming
    • California
    • Oregon 
    • Iowa

    States with the highest number of working CRNAs include:

    • Texas
    • Ohio
    • Pennsylvania
    • North Carolina
    • Tennessee 

    There are currently 42,620 registered CRNAs in the United States with a projected rise of 31% from 2016-2026. By 2026, the BLS predicates there will be 48,600 CRNAs. 

    If you’re a registered nurse and thinking about entering this lucrative specialty, there are currently two different education paths you may follow: Masters of Science In Nursing (MSN) or Doctorate of Nursing Practice (DNP).

    Programs require nurses to have their Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN) degree before applying to the graduate-level program.  With many of the foundational academic courses available online, getting started on this exciting career path may be easier than you think.

    Requirements For Application 

    Regardless of which path you decide to take, there are several requirements that CRNA programs require from their applicants. It is important to have the needed requirements as schools will reject the application. These include:

    • Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN)
    • Registered Nurse License (RN)
    • Critical Care/ICU Experience
      • Cardiac Catheterization Lab, Long Term Acute Care Hospital, Neonatal Intensive Care Unit, Post Anesthesia Care Unit do NOT count towards ICU experience
    • GPA of 3.0 or higher (Each school has a different minimum requirement but 3.0 is the lowest accepted GPA)
    • Life Support Certifications (BLS, ACLS, PALS)
    • Resume
    • Combined minimum GRE of 300 or better
    • Test of English as a Foreign Language (TOEFL) if applicable
    • Shadow experience of a CRNA and an accompanying essay
    • Nursing Certifications (CCRN, RNC)
    • Personal Essay and Interview

    Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) Degrees

    Master’s programs typically run between 27 - 30 months and consist of two phases: academic foundation which can be completed online in some cases and extensive clinical experience. Most programs require completion of around 64 credits.

    Didactic classes include:

    • Advanced Physiology
    • Advanced Pharmacology
    • Advanced Clinical Assessment & Diagnostic Reasoning
    • Chemistry & Physics
    • Basic Principles of Nurse Anesthesia
    • Advanced Principles of Nurse Anesthesia
    • Biostatistics
    • Best nursing practices
    • Healthcare ethics
    • Technology use in advanced nursing practice

    It’s important to note that the Council on Accreditation of Nurse Anesthesia Education (COA) is transitioning to new requirements for entry into practice. By January 1, 2022, all Nurse Anesthesia programs must be doctoral degrees in order to maintain accreditation. Despite this deadline, the Council has extended the deadline to 2025 in order for CRNA programs to develop the proper curriculum that adheres to all national standards. Since MSN programs take over 2 years to complete, 2019 cohorts will likely be the last MSN-educated CRNAs in the field. 

    Show Me MSN Programs

    Programs are continuing to transition to awarding doctoral degrees. As of July 15, 2019, there are 92 nurse anesthesia programs approved by the COA to offer entry-level doctoral degrees and 25 programs approved to offer post-master’s doctoral degree completion programs. Currently, there are 29 programs that remain to be approved to award doctoral degrees.

    Doctoral Degrees In Nurse Anesthesia

    There are two common types of doctoral degrees for aspiring CRNAs: the Doctorate of Nurse Practice (DNP) and the Doctorate of Nursing Anesthesia Practice (DNAP). Most doctoral-level degrees require around 100 credits and take about 36 months to complete. 

    The main difference between these two degrees is that some institutions do not recognize the DNAP as a terminal degree - meaning they don’t consider it the highest degree in the field. A DNP is considered a terminal degree for any advanced practice nursing field. 

    The American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) accredited DNP programs while the Nurse Anesthetists Council for Accreditation (NACA) approves DNAP programs, which are specially designed for nurse anesthetist students.

    This primarily affects those who wish to obtain a university faculty position, as this may have a bearing on tenure eligibility. If you’re seeking to use your doctorate for practice, however, this shouldn’t hinder your career prospects.

    CRNA Program Tuition

    Nursing programs differ in how they charge/display costs for tuition. Some universities choose to display costs by credit, some by semester, and others by course.

    As a general rule, public schools offer lower tuition rates than private ones. It’s also important to note that in-state resident tuition is often much less than for out-of-state residents.

    To get started, here’s a list of COA accredited, programs for nurse anesthesia. Program costs reflect in-state tuition for the 2018-2019 academic year. They also do not reflect miscellaneous fees including books, technology fees, lab fees, and other miscellaneous costs.

    It is important to note, that there are programs that offer CRNA classes but are NOT accredited by the COA. These programs will not allow students to sit for their certifications and therefore be unable to practice.
