For more than a decade, the shortage of trained nurses and physicians in the United States has caused concern among health care leaders, as well as patients and their families. The health care industry has made considerable progress in addressing the issue, but many hospitals and health care systems are still struggling to maintain adequate staffing levels. During this same period, the surgical landscape has been changing, and nurse anesthetist programs have grown substantially to try to meet demand.

Crtified registered nurse anesthetists (CRNAs) have many reasons to be pleased about their job prospects, both now and in the future. According to the U.S. Department of Labor’s 2006-07 Occupational Outlook Handbook published by the Bureau of Labor Statistics, job opportunities for registered nurses in all specialties are expected to be “excellent” in the next few years, with employment rates growing much faster than the average for all occupations through 2014.

The Handbook also predicts that advanced practice nurses, including CRNAs, will be in high demand, particularly in medically underserved areas such as inner cities and rural areas.
