Quote from jonRNMD
think about it this way: to be a CRNA would require 6 years post secondary education....while an Anesthesiologist would require 12 years post secondary education.....
if PRIDE is your thing, then i guess its better for you to take up an additional 6 years of education.....just my 2 cents
PRIDE?? so i guess i won't get any PRIDE as a crna.. and as for the education, yea, it APPEARS longer, but take into consideration those of us that might have a master's degree already, prior to getting rn and crna. now, that would equate to, oh, say 6-7 yrs of post sec. educ, plus 6 yrs nursing/crna post sec. educ.
to me, looks like that adds up to just about the same.
md's have to have a four yr before med school. could be english, engineering, humanities, etc... so, what's the difference?
granted med school is different than crna, and yea, md's get more clinical hours, but crna is specialized for those two yrs. of educ. and clinical.
so, i can assure you, i will take MUCH PRIDE when i finish.
