Just out of curiosity. Does anyone think the CRNA specilty will change within the next 10 years? As in will it require a doctorate? Will there be a shortage/demand (or possibly too many requiring cuts)? Will the schooling extend to a longer period of time? ect...I think some input from some current CRNAs would be beneficial....Thanks
Had a big conversation with a bunch of pre-nursing students regarding this topic. It would be nice to share some input and first hand experiences. Thank you guys.
Quote from RRTtoRN2013
I was informed the new mandate starts in 2015 for NP to have their doctorate.
Yes, it is recommendation for NPs to get their doctorate no later than 2015. It is a requirement for new CRNAs to get their doctorate by 2025. http://www.aana.com/aboutus/Documents/naeducation.pdf
