I'm going to be starting a nurse anesthetist program that starts in May. From what I understand its the medical commuity that is limiting the use of nurse anesthetists. Here in Vegas they are utilized in relatively low risk procedures like EGD, colonoscopies, etc. So until someone can come in an change that, Las Vegas will never have the need to prepare their own anesthetists.
The program is intense, so I haven't seen any distance learning classes. There are some programs that have clincal sites throughout the region. Someone stated that they had to choose clincal sites from a Texas school either in Texan, Florida or California...don't hold me to those exact states. I have a relative who's program in Penn. let him research out a clinical site in his home state to complete the program. That's what I have learned so far.
