Hi guys,

I am pursuing a career to become a nurse anesthetist. I just wanted to get your opinions and thoughts about doctorate vs. master's degree in nurse anesthesia. Many nurse anesthesia schools are transitioning to doctorate program from master's. Starting 2025, doctoral degree is a requirement for the CRNAs. I am not planning to become a nurse educator or school faculty. I am solely planning on practicing in the OR for a long term goal. Who knows thou... I might change my plan. I can always decide to go back to school for doctoral, if I do change my mind. Would you go for doctorate degree or master? What is the benefit of having a doctorate degree? Do you get paid more? Will employers prefer doctorate degree more than master? I'd really appreciate any input and thought. Thank you for reading my post.
