I was thinking about becoming a nurse anesthtist and honestly I have asked a couple of people and really have not gotten a clear answer on how long it may take, What would be a good school to look into.......... Is there anyone out there that is a nurse anesthetist? If so what steps do I have to take? How long does it take from start to finish? What is a good school to look into. I am a mother of a six year old Do you think this is something I should get myself into. Can anyone help?
