There are 120 accredited CRNA Schools in the US! That’s a lot to choose from! The main things you’ll want to look at when choosing a CRNA school are as follows:

- Front Loaded vs. Integrated

Therefore, students accepted to a program January 1, 2022 and thereafter must graduate with a doctorate degree!
