CRNA is years away, however, I would like to ask...those who are CRNAs currently, and those who are chastising (sp?) Andrea for her post or her motivations...if CRNAs made $20,000 a year, instead of $100,000+ - would you have been as drawn initially? As some have said, money should never be the ONLY motivation for a career, but it is always something that should be considered and will most likely be a motivator.
    Yes,, I would do this job EVEN if I was paid what I made as an ICU nurse. Period It is the best job in nursing. For the record, 100K is a bit low in most locations for a new grad.

    I'm curious too! I am a 1st year NS student but have been doing extensive research in CRNA. Let's see how well I do 5-8 years from this posting date!
