    What you say is true however I am speaking to averages. It seems that the average for CRNA's with a few years of experience is within the 120 to 150K range.

    I may not have any business posting this but I would like to just ask a question. From my research into what kind of nurse I ultimately want to be I have found that CRNA's have more independence and are not required to be supervised by an MDA. However NP's are supervised by MD's. Could this be the main reason for the pay difference. It seems to me that if I were a hospital hiring, that it would make more sence to hire 2 CRNA's over 1 MDA. And the job expectations are equal. Does that make sence.......its late...lol

    Actually in most areas CRNA's are in a sense supervised by MDA's. At least right now it seems that only in rural areas where MDA's would not go are there CRNA's on their own. It may be like that in bigger cities some as well but I just mainly see it in the rural areas
