    My buddy is a CRNA, he only works per diem and buys health insurance out of pocket.

    He makes $100- $120 per hour depending on the hospital is at for the day. He does endo at two hospitals and a free standing outpatient center.

    Instead of asking complete random and subjective data from people on an online forum just go to the website gasworks.com which has the job listings and offered pay for CRNAs. They are current positions that will give you an idea of offered pay for CRNAs in today's market.

    The average annual CRNA salary from last year's AANA's Compensation & Benefits​ survey was 175,000.

    You will never get an accurate or even semi-accurate idea of salaries by asking people on here what they make. You can go to the AANA website and get their annual Compensation and Benefits report and it will give in depth detail of everything you could want to know about CRNA compensation, benefits, workplaces etc.

    Just curious as to why you say CRNA's are doomed from now on?

    You have nearly 50,000 CRNAs in the United States. There are about 10-20 CRNAs max that post on here. It is unrealistic to think you can get a meaningful idea of what CRNAs make by such a low number of CRNAs disclosing what they make.

    And no I am not hiding my salary: I am an O-4 with 15 years active duty. I am taking the 4 year bonus, with certification pay, and my BAH is approximately 2400. Which to most people means absolutely nothing, but is also the only accurate to figure military CRNA pay. Unless you have recently deployed or our living outside the continental US....

    Well, at least the ones in Florida. Can't say it's really surprising. I'd move.
