It is important for all the medical students to know about the top ranked CRNA programs. Without any doubt the nurses are one of the most respected people in the country and this is definitely one of the most caring job in the world. There is no hesitation that anesthesia is amongst the major subjects in the world. Not all the nurses, but only those nurses who have the CRNA degree (certified registered nursing anesthetist) are allowed to provide the anesthesia to the patients in various hospitals while doing the surgery. There are many opportunities for the CRNA anesthetist and the nurses but there is no doubt at all that these CRNA programs deal with lots of competition and they are highly selective as well. According to one of the recent survey, being conducted in the year 2009 by Merritt Hawkins and Associates has concluded that the average salary of a CRNA is around $189,000 per year. Thus, all the medical science students should make sure that they know about all the programs being run by all the colleges in California.
One should start with the Kaiser Permanente, which is definitely one of the most popular nursing schools of California. If anybody wants to take the admission in this college then they will definitely have to make sure that they have the bachelor or the Master of Science degree in nursing from some recognized university or college and they will have to make sure that the grade point average does not go down and is above 32. They will also have to make sure that they have the full time experience in nursing from some adult critical care capacity. One can find around 10 Kaiser Permanente sites being situated in various area of the southern California which are dealing with the critical practice.
