what it takes to be a CNA

  1. Hey guys, I just finished my first semester in nursing school and was looking to try to get a job at the hospital. I was wondering what the requirements are for a CRNA. I know alot of my classmates have gotten jobs and say they are CRNA's, but don't you have to take a test or something to be certified for the job? I need all the input I can get! Thanks yall

    there is a big difference between CRNA's- nurse anesthetists, and CNA's- nursing assistant. I think you mean CNA's. That completely varies by state. Ask your school of nursing or go on the board of nursing website for your state
