    Are we discussing RN's or CRNA's?

    CRNA's. She just said RN's oversaturation was a regional problem not a national one, and if so I wanted to know which regions were not hit then. I was making a point in relation to CRNA oversaturation which she claims is regional also.

    Well, I would go so far as to say that it's a national problem, but that there are some regions that are not oversaturated, rather than the converse. But you are the one who brought up RNs, not I.

    You answered yes to a very direct question, I assumed you knew the answer but I guess not. :P

    And, the "also" in my title is referring to the already know RN oversaturation of course it will be brought up here.

    I know, based on what I've read here, that there are some regions that are not oversaturated. I think that is the exception, rather than the rule, hence my answer in post #12. Now, I suppose people here could just be lying I guess, soI'm no expert. I'm just answering based on what others have stated.

    Maybe you should post your question in the CRNA forum, since we don't seem to be answering satisfactorily.

    Most parts of Virginia are not oversaturated with RNs. I am not talking about metro DC.

    Depends on what are of the country you want to work in.

    I think this whole tangent was because of this misunderstanding. I did not know he meant what "area" of the country I thought he asked me simply what country. lol

    Well, when every other new grad tells ya she is going to work for a year and go to CRNA school...
    Just because they want to doesn't mean they will get accepted. It is one of the most competitive programs to get into. At a university near me, there were over 300 applicants for 7 spots. Many nursing students who say they are going to end up doing CRNA, haven't done their research into what it takes to even get in the program.

    Kind of what I was thinking. The same applies for a BSN. Many want it but at the same time many will not make it. People hear the salary and how many years it takes and get excited.

    And also my state's only CRNA 10 spot program that I mentioned earlier is fulltime, no exceptions.
