Now, before I get blown up with comments saying "it's not about money, but patient care". I get that. No need to tell me over and over. I heard CRNAs mainly get hired in rural areas, which kind of scares me. I would simply like... Read More

    I don't mind. Any info I get off this thread is useful to me, even if it's not dealing with the original salary question.
    How dare you change the subject of changing the subject. Do you understand etiquette? These boards are full of subject changers!

    I guess they're asking the OP? I know rural settings are in higher demand as opposed to big cities. I live in texas and don't plan on moving out of state anytime soon.

    Obviously there are other factors that would go into your decision. For example Houston looks great with this calculation, but has the highest average commute times, whereas NYC has a high cost of living but you could walk to work if you plan right.

    The website Numbeo - The biggest Internet Database about Cost of Living, Housing Indicators and many other informations about cities and countries! Has a TON of good information in deciding what city is best for you.

    How do I find all CRNA practices that are taking on partners like you have found?

    Everything you said sounds great as a prospective SRNA but check some of your spelling. After nearly 7 years of college it's hard to accept.

    Wow I was considering applying to this institution before I read it was ran by anesthesiologists. It's a shame that their program openly uses students to staff their needs instead of learning as a student. It's also dangerous considering you are still a student and require a preceptor who is fully liscensed.
    Seriously?

    Seems to vary GREATLY by state. Currently, 17 states are "opt-out" - meaning CRNAs can practice without an MD supervising. In these states (especially in the rural areas), CRNA salaries can easily top $200 K. However, in saturated states or states in which AAs exsist as competition, the salary can be as low as $100 - 110K. In Florida and Georgia, the current starting salary median for CRNAs (non-opt out mind you) is $120 - $130 K with a mid-career average of $160 K. Florida, in particular is very saturated (however the population is growing so jobs are still available). I hope this helps!

    Opt-out has to do with billing Medicare. You can still work independently in non opt-out states.
