Path to CRNA instructor ?

  1. 0 I was just wondering how one became a CRNA instructor at a university. Do you need to get a DNP or will a master's degree suffice?

    It depends upon what class you are thinking about teaching. The program I will start has phd's in their science classes as instructors (physiology, medicinal chem, etc). Otherwise, the other instructors that are CRNAs are either already phd's, dnp/dnap, or are in school now.

    I agree that it depends. Most of the instructors in my program have a Masters with only a couple with a PHD or DNP.

    You can look at the job postings on the AANA website. It has the most listing for CRNA faculty positions that I know of. It is still a very small list, but it will give you an idea of what the programs are seeking for instructors.
