20 Good Books to Read for Nurse Anesthesia

Nurse anesthetists administer anesthesia to patients and work with other healthcare professionals, including surgeons and anesthesiologists. Before they administer anesthesia, nurse anesthetists perform patient evaluations to determine how much and what type of anesthesia to use, considering any prior health conditions during their evaluations. Nurse anesthetists must complete specific training and certification in the discipline to work in clinics, hospitals, and private practices. (www.nursepractitionerschools.com)

You must be legally licensed in your state to work as a nurse anesthetist, which requires having at least a master’s degree and earning national certification. But to enter into a master’s program, you must first be a registered nurse (RN) with a Bachelor of Science in Nursing (BSN). You’ll also need to complete at least 1 year of experience in an acute care setting such as an ICU or ER, though you might need more depending on the acceptance requirements of your school.
