    I work anywhere from 45-60 hours per week. One of the facilities I work at requires working one saturday a month so those weeks are closer to 70 hours if I work the full 6 days.

    Most work 40-50 hours a week, as part of our regular job. Many, many, work more by picking up additional time, and call, and shifts. Some really get the bug, and take 24 hour call on weekends at second jobs, as well as what they do for their regular job. Or pick up plastics on the side. Or an OB gig on the side. Or a pain practice on the side. The work ethic of CRNAs is pretty darn impressive, and those that want to work non-stop certainly can, and will be rewarded handsomely for doing so.
