CRNAs conducting research

  1. In addition to the clinical aspect of nurse anesthesia, do people with CRNA training ever do anesthesia research? Or is this a field basically for the M.D.s and Ph.Ds?
    If anyone knows of any CRNA that does research, did they need any additional degrees besides the masters in nurse anesthesia?

    i dont think you have to have other degrees. the military crnas do tons of research. the key to research alot of times is the cost of running a project, the accessability of a study population and manpower to run all the statistical analysis, collect data, interpret data etc.
