    Right but for instance my state has only one CRNA program that admits only 10 people a year. And some states don't have one at all...

    The US is a very large country. Care to narrow it down to maybe a region?

    Do many of the hospitals in your state hire CRNAs, though? THere could be a reason why there aren't many programs in your particular state.

    the RN oversaturation is a regional thing?

    Yes. And as you indicated, there are probably some areas in the US that graduate very few CRNAs, and other areas in the US that have many CRNA programs and graduate thousands at a time, thus contributing to a regional oversaturation problem.
