Hi Amaurelys,

In the general the steps are outlined below:

1) obtain a bachelor of science in nursing (BSN) degree
2) become licensed as a registered nurse (RN) - pass NCLEX-RN exam
3) work for a minimum of 1 year in a critical care setting (average work for about 3 years)
4) gain admission into an nurse anesthesia program
5) obtain board certification and licensure (via exams)

The American Association of Nurse Anesthetists has a wealth of information:

Good luck.
