    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.

    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.
