What does a CRNA do?

Hello! I am a rising junior in high school, and am very interested in going into the medical field. However, I am not sure what I want to be. Currently I am looking into CRNAs. I had surgery 6 months ago for my ACL, and the CRNA that worked with me was very kind and comforting. She has inspired me! medicine college healthcare doctor medical CRNA

CK’s Answer

CRNA (Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists) are responsible for administering anesthesia to patients. These healthcare professionals work independently, regularly serving as the sole anesthetist within a medical practice or healthcare facility. In fact, the advanced training required puts nurse anesthetists on a level similar to physicians, making this specialty quite unique among other nursing careers.

Hi Athena, I work at Medtronic and would offer that there are many other ways to work in the medical device field as well. I didn't plan to end up in the medical field but have now worked at 2 Medical Device companies and love the mission and that my work directly helps people. Such a rewarding experience, good luck!
Thank you for your response! I will look into it. Athena R.
