Question about anesthesiologists?

  1. To go into anesthesiology does a person have to go thru a nursing program first. My God-child wants to be go into anesthesiology and I was curious if any of you know about it.

    An anesthesiologist is an MD. A CRNA is a nurse and yes you have to complete nursing school first.

    Thanks I thought that's how it went but I wanted to just be sure. He wants to be a CRNA not an MD.

    2magnoliatrees,

    Visit the Nurse Anesthetist board here on this site. There's a lot of great information there. And you can also visit www.aana.com that's the Association of Nurse Anesthetists.
