Wisconsin Healthcare Careers

Certified registered nurse anesthetist (CRNA)

Certified registered nurse anesthetists (CRNAs) administer anesthesia and provide care before, during and after surgical, therapeutic, diagnostic and obstetrical procedures. They also provide pain management and some emergency services.

The median annual pay is $230,270 per year in Wisconsin, and it is expected that the need for this position will increase by 38% (much faster than average) in the next 10 years.

A master's degree is required to become a certified registered nurse anesthetist.

Most CRNAs work full time. In physicians’ offices, CRNAs typically work during normal business hours. In hospitals and other healthcare facilities, they may work in shifts—including nights, weekends and holidays—to provide round-the-clock patient care. Some also may need to be on call.

You may be a good fit for this opportunity if you excel in communication skills, critical-thinking skills, compassion, attention to detail, interpersonal skills, leadership skills and resourcefulness.
