According to https://www.nursepractitionerschools.com/certified-registered-nurse-anesthesia/how-to-become-crna/ you have to get a BSN Degree, complete and pass the NCLEX-RN exam, get accepted to a accredited graduate nurse anesthesia program, get a Doctor of Nursing Practice in Anesthesia (DNAP) Degree, get certification from the National Board of Certification and Recertification for Nurse Anesthetist (NBCRNA), and then get State Nurse Practitioner Licensure.

As for the question is it hard. That totally depends on you. I'd assume for most people it would be very challenging and you might as well become a Dr. and earn way more.

I beleive the hardest part with new mandates is the time in which it takes to get credentials. The total time is about 12years between the BSN (4yrs), MSN (2yrs), the DNAP (4yrs) and with care experience (2 yrs).

The level of difficulty is based on patience and your willingness to ready and study.

However, the reward afterwards is worth it, if it is your passion.
