If I want to be a CRNA in the military, will the military help train me to become one, or will I need to become a CRNA before joining the military?
Want to know if I need to become a CRNA before joining the military, or if I will be trained by the military to become one
I was in the Army so I'm biased: https://www.goarmy.com/careers-and-jobs/career-match/science-medicine/intensive-care/66f-nurse-anesthetist.html
While in school, you get a stipend, still have to do some military training, then repay your time after you graduate. Good luck!
i think you can do it either way. if you join the military first, try to get what you want in writing before you sign on the dotted line. i knew someone who joined hoping to get a degree in physical therapy. they said yes-they would train him for physical therapy if he joined. then once he was in, they said he had to get some other degree, like nursing. he said he didn't want to be a nurse. they were like too bad. he asked if he could get out of the military then because he only wanted to do physical therapy and that's what he signed up for. they said no, he couldn't leave. he didn't have anything in writing so he never did get the physical therapy degree and was totally pissed. this was some years ago but i saw it first hand.
in fact before you take any job anywhere for the rest of your life, get the job description and pay they said they would give you, the vacation and benefits they promised, in writing before you take the job. it's just a good practice to protect yourself.
