Posted

I am a first year nursing student and I have been doing some research on nursing careers and came across CRNA. I'm looking for anyone who can give me some info about being a CRNA in Australia mainly where did you do your study and how was the process to becoming a CRNA and for the rest of you around the world, do you enjoy your career as a CRNA? Thanks in advance guys :)

We moved your thread to the Australia forum for the best response.

We don't have CRNA in Australia.

Nurses can work in anaesthetics in Australia which basically involves assisting the anaesthetist/anaesthesiologist.

If you want to be the one administering the anaesthesia or you were interested in making a decent salary like US CRNAs do, I would suggest pursuing medical school.
