Many ask what the differences are between Anesthesiologists and CRNAs.  Anesthesiologists in the United States complete a four year undergraduate college degree that includes satisfying pre-med requirements. Like other medical doctors, anesthesiologist must follow undergraduate education with four years of medical school. After medical school, a physician specializing in anesthesiology complete a 4 year anesthesiology residency program. They are then eligible to sit for the American Board of Anesthesiology exam.

Nurse anesthetists, the first healthcare providers dedicated to the specialty of anesthesia, have their roots in the 1800’s when nurses first gave anesthesia to wounded soldiers on the battlefields of the Civil War. Today, CRNAs’ are master’s prepared advanced practice nurses who enjoy a high degree of autonomy and professional respect.  CRNAs provide anesthetics to patients in every practice setting and for every type of surgery and procedure. They are the sole anesthesia providers in nearly all rural hospitals.
