So, why do you want to be a CRNA?
I am looking for what people answered to this question and what they are planning to answer. It is kind of like asking why do you want to be a nurse. Aaaaa, I like to take care of people. Really, what would you answer?
I am guessing you are referencing the interview question. Just be honest. They will be able to see if you are sincere or not. My reason was that all of the aspects of my job that i like are in anesthesia + some. More independence, more responsibility, hopefully less mess!
They asked me directly about the money also. I was honest and said I think anyone would be lying if that weren't a factor. I want to have a more secure financial future....etc.
Just think about it and you will find the reasons that you want to do this. I liked critical care nursing, the things that I like are a part of anesthesia (monitoring, titrating, etc)...the things i didn't like are bye-bye.(poop, crazy families, crazy patients, etc) At least they may be crazy, but not for long! Hope this helps.
