Laura’s Answer

Hello! Both anesthesiologists and registered nurses will work actively in hospital settings, assisting patients before, during and after medical operations. An anesthesiologist is a medical doctor and would have a medical degree that specializes an anesthesiology. "Registered nurses" is a broad category of nurses who have completed a degree in nursing science. Within registered nurses, there are registered nurses who are nurse anesthetists who also work within anesthesiology, helping an anesthesiologist during medical procedures.

Renea’s Answer

An anesthesiologist is a specialist in anesthesia. No doubt does clinicals. A registered nurse is a person who has trained to be a nurse after studying and doing clinicals and has learned about the 12 body systems in depth. Some nurses have at least a Bachelor's degree and have finished college. Others have just been to a school that offers just the nursing program but they have both graduated and fulfilled a set number of credit hours. The nurse anesthetist is a person with probably a master's degree in nursing. You should look at the programs of the schools you would like to attend and see what courses will be offered and what is required under (the RN or the MSRNA (Master of Science Registered Nurse Anesthetist) to make sure that when you finish you can start your career as a RN or a Nurse anesthetist. You do not want to have spent a lot of time in school and do not have the skills or requirements to get the job. Also when you finish your studies there will be a test you will have to take in order to get registered in your chosen profession.

Marie’s Answer

Hi! Registered Nurses and Anesthesiologist are very different.

A Registered Nurse (RN) is a health-care professional who has graduated from a nursing program and is licensed by a country, state, or other government authorized body. Their role is to provide care to individuals, families, and communities. They can work in various settings and can specialize in a variety of fields of practice. One of these specializations includes Nurse Anesthesist.

An Anesthesiologist is a doctor who specializes in administering anesthesia during surgical procedures. They can also provide a wide variety of services.

Hope this helps with your question!

Sue’s Answer

I would add that RN is a registered nurse. Usually a 4 year degree
Maybe you are asking about CRNA. Certified registered nurse anesthetist. 4 year nursing degree, 2 years working in ICU or ER and another at least 2 years of school.
Good luck!
