    How much do you make?

    There is more to CRNA income than just the salary figure. If one is making 170k as independent contractor do the math and see how much you have left after paying all the taxes and purchasing benefits for you and your family. So 170k for 40 hours a week and full benefits is ok. Not otherwise.

    Florida is not the only state that pays low. Check out Arkansas or Tennessee. Most jobs that don't have their salaries posted pay in low 100s.

    I know it first hand. Go ahead and look at the salaries in Florida and major cities. For 40 hour work week they will be in low 100s.

    Good question. Most of the time the salaries posted here are based on more than 40 hour work week. Most CRNAs that make higher salaries work over 40 hours a week and take call. Those who don't make in lower 100s.

    Is it still financially worth it to become CRNA?

    The information I provided is factual. At the 300K job that is advertised you will not make 300K if you only work 40 hours a week and take 6 weeks of vacation.

    There is a lot of variables in CRNA salaries. Those jobs that are posted for 300K come with no benefits, no paid time off, 60 hour work weeks and call shifts included in 300K. Otherwise you are not making anywhere close to 300K.

    I think it depends on the area. The are some areas where psych NPs are in demand and easily make 6 figures. There are some areas where CRNAs start below six figures.

    Psych NP is a good option and I am sure they get a lot of respect. CRNA get respect if working solo but not much respect in team model depending on where they work of course. Psych NPs make comparable salaries to CRNAs I think.

    Length of ICU experience

    It depends on the person. 1-3 years of experience is good in my opinion.

    Tuition should not be the deciding factor when you choose a CRNA program. You should focus on what kind of education and clinical experiences you will be getting. If they let you know in advance where you will be doing your clinicals and if you are ok with that then ASU maybe a good option.

    Be prepared to drive a lot unless you get Jonesboro clinical site which sucks.

    I didn't go because the program cost doubled the year I was accepted. I ended up going to another CRNA program. But now I would recommend you to look at program quality and clinical experience rather that the cost of attendance.

    I did. But decided not to go.

    Local hospital hires hew grad CRNAs at 90K a year. The only way you can make more is if you take call.

    I would stay away from debt nowadays. RN make good salaries. There are some RN specialties out there who make six figures. If you would like to pursue the more education route I would go to a school where you could work and study. That leaves out CRNA school because they don't reimburse you for the labor that you provide for 2 years. Actual learning part of it is maybe 30% the rest is free labor. If you are looking to earn more money I would look into administration, becoming a medical representative, etc. Surgical equipment representatives in OR make as much as CRNA, if not more, and have no debt and did not waste their time in school.

    I am sure you will change your opinion many times while you go through your journey of becoming a CRNA.
