Pain practice

  1. 0 I would like to know if many CRNAs work in pain practices and if they do how would you describe their role?
    I will most likely get a post masters cert in FNP and get both CRNA and FNP certified. After speaking to one of my professors I have developed an interest in chronic pain managemt. Thank you, CRNA's.

    I should add that I'm a SRNA and that I have signed up for my schools pain management rotation instead of trauma. I wanted to make sure this was not a bad decision.

    that sounds interesting. i am interested in being a crna but would like to first get an np masters to strengthen my resume. i have been looking for logic to show being an np does not clash with my goals of being a crna. this might work! time to find someone to shadow!

    Generally speaking, a NP certification will not strengthen your application to CRNA school.

    yeah, thanks for confirming my findings. after looking around im going to take biochem and an advanced pathophys and nail them both. that should be fine, and more applicable.

    Thought this would be a great post-master's option......until I looked at the tuition. I am reading this correctly? 32K+ for a non-board certificate AND I have to arrange my own clinical? WOW and NO. Great concept, bad economics.

    If you look at the DNAP programs or even quite a few of the DNP programs the tuition at this level is going to be 700 and up per semester credit hour. Mine at TWU is approximately 900 per credit hour by the time the fees are added in.

    This program directly relates to pain practice where an NP program is going to give the CRNA student little information and probably no practical pain clinicals that would be applicable to CRNAs wanting to practice interventional pain management. I do agree the program is expensive.

    It seems it is one of a kind-I have been unable to find a similar program elsewhere. Im more specifically interested in learning the interventional part of pain managment-but my school has very limited seats in that rotation. Maybe a DNAP will offer it in the next few years.

    It is doubtful that a DNP or DNAP would offer these type of courses. It is not the educational focus of these programs.

    There are short seminars in pain management i.e. The Jack Neary ones. Workshop Homepage

    They are all relatively expensive.
