Any information/feedback here will be very appreciated.
I want to apply to CRNA school in the next year or two. I would like to get into a California school, but I'm also willing to apply to some out of state schools
. There aren't that many programs on the west coast compared to the number of programs east of the Mississippi.
After graduation, do most CRNA graduates easily find positions? How easy would it be for me to find a job in California if I decided to go to VCU, for example???

So what are the "dead areas" for CRNA's and perhaps more importantly HOW did they evolve (or perhaps they were always that way in the first place)? Are MDA's implementing some largely silent, surrepticious plan to "disenfranchise" CRNA's in one market after the next or is it a matter of long standing practice? Also, you would think that CRNA's would still be utilized in some capacity at least under the supervision of MDA's even in "those" areas. Also, please tell me that these areas don't include Oahu! I also remember from when I was stationed there in the Navy that CRNA's "seemed" to be commonplace (but they could have all been military, I can't remember for sure). I know also that Kaiser in Oahu uses SOME CRNA's, but I don't know anything about the rest of the job market. What's the point in making a good living and doing something you like if you can't live in paradise? How about Nevada, Florida, and Texas?
