Nurse anesthesia was one of the original advanced practice nursing specialties. A Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist (CRNA) is an RN who, after graduate level education and training, provides anesthesia care for patients undergoing surgical procedures, invasive diagnostic studies or chronic pain management. Nurse anesthetists are employed in a variety of settings such as hospitals, medical centers, outpatient surgery centers, pain clinics and the armed forces. CRNAs enjoy a high level of professional autonomy with an accompanying degree of remuneration.
