I am thinking of making a career change and was wondering if I fit the profession or not. I am 35 yo right now am accepted into a second degree nursing program, I have a degree in biology/premed, have graduate level science classes, I was originally either going to go to med school or chiropractic and chose chiro school, I attended 9 years ago, went half way through decided not for me, grades 3.3-3.4 and I have been working in pharmaceutical sales for 5 years now. I wanted to go back into healthcare and and many friends who work in the field recommend CRNA, for obvious reasons. I do enjoy science, and am detail oriented, and analytical, I also like to help people, but not to the extent of wiping hind ends all day. Also, could you also enlighten me on the future of the profession, esp. w/ healthcare constantly trying to cut costs? The compensation seems nice, however, when you see a CRNA making 120K, is this a figure before or after malpractice insurance
, also what does malpractice run for CRNA's these days? Any other relavant info would be appreciated.
