CRNA Jobs in Texas

The job market for certified registered nurse anesthetists (CRNAs) in Texas is strong, and trends suggest it will stay healthy well into the future.

CRNAs bring anesthesia services to areas and situations that would otherwise do without them. These nurses are in demand in a wide variety of Texas venues, including public health facilities, military bases, prisons, hospitals, ambulatory surgical centers, and outpatient care centers. They can work everywhere from dental clinics to plastic surgery providers and are especially well-suited for many rural healthcare systems because they offer essential services typically unavailable outside larger urban areas.

Qualified to serve 

A CRNA is a registered nurse with special anesthesia training who can administer anesthesia in support of doctors, dentists, and surgeons, and monitor patients as they recover from treatment. A CRNA is a type of advanced practice registered nurse (APRN) who holds a master's degree or doctorate. They are qualified to diagnose and manage medical issues, prescribe medications, and order tests. In the US armed forces, they are the primary anesthesia providers. They are also often the only anesthetists in rural hospitals throughout Texas. Unlike anesthesiologists, they do not hold doctor of medicine (MD) or doctor of osteopathic medicine (DO) degrees.

It can take up to 10 years in total to qualify as a certified registered nurse anesthetist. This includes becoming a registered nurse and experience in that role in a medical intensive care unit (ICU) as well as graduating from an accredited nurse anesthesia program. Following graduation from such a program, a candidate must pass the National Certification Examination for Nurse Anesthetists.
