Shannon’s Answer

the short answer, imho, is yes. if you need more money than this (unless you have 10 kids or something), maybe you might examine your priorities & lifestyle. but that's just me.
the long answer is: you would be well served by learning to find answers. asking a crowd of strangers, even though well educated, is a crapshoot. learn how to do google searches, for example. learn how to phrase questions to get the best results. learn where else to find information - this question is easily answered like Kathy demonstrated above.
healthcare is an industry where initiative is very important. you need to impress people who are teaching you, especially the doctors. when you have a question, look for the answer first. then go to a doctor & say 'i was wondering about ___. i looked at __ journal which said ___. would you tell me why/how?' you are in charge of your education. the more you try this, the more doctors will want to teach you.

Hi Zakir,
A resource I like to research salaries is Glassdoor. According to their site, Certified Nurse Anesthetist make, on average, $90-$130/hour. That can range and change depending on years of experience and location.
The health care industry is a great one to look into.
I hope this helps!

Kathy’s Answer

Not sure what "enough" is for you, but you can Google "annual salary nurse anesthetist" to find a salary range. Benefits are always a plus, too.

Corky’s Answer

According to recent polls, the highest paying career path in nursing is nurse anesthesia. Median salaries are well over $160k yearly. The real question is “what is enough for you”. Money/salary is an important factor but should never be the only factor in choosing a career path. Without passion and a true sense of purpose in your chosen field money will soon take a backseat to lack of job satisfaction.
