CRNAs Making More Than Some MD's

  1. 4/18/02

    Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists are garnering
    salaries higher than some physicians, according to a survey
    released this month by Allied Consulting, a Dallas-based
    health care staffing firm. The survey shows that CRNA
    salary offers are reaching $180,000 annually.

    We all work to pay the rent, but I still go by the old adage, "Money can't buy happiness". Yes,it can ease many burdens...but what does the $180,000 cost them? Their family time, student loans, no free time? If you truly want to be a MD or CRNA or anything, GO FOR IT, but at least like what you do.
