Nurse anesthetists prepare and administer anesthetics to patients during surgeries, births or other medical or dental procedures. They often work with physicians and other members of a team to provide care. Nurse anesthetists are also responsible for managing patients' responses to anesthetics and use a variety of techniques and equipment in their day-to-day jobs. Nurse anesthetist jobs require the ability to manage a high degree of responsibility and work independently.
Nurse anesthetists work in hospitals, surgical care, and other healthcare facilities and are the primary providers of anesthesia care in rural areas.
Nurse anesthetists are required to complete a Master's program in nurse anesthesia and pass a national certification exam.
