nurse anesthetist

  1. is nurse anesthetist program/ class started in Canada. If yes, when I decided to work in United States, do I need to study again or is my studies in Canada accepted as well? What would be your advice? What's the minimum working experience required?

    I did not know that there are nurse anesthetists in Canada. I thought all anesthetics were administered by physicians. We always get calls from Canadian physician anesthetists near the end of the year because they are temporarily unemployed because the system is out of money and they are not doing elective surgery. I believe that you would be wise to receive your anesthesia education in the US because I believe that would be where you would have to practice. Please correct me if I am wrong. Don
