A Multi-Millionaire After A Year – My Treat Tip For the Awesome Nurses Out There

Did you know that……

  • Based on an annual survey of physician’s salaries, medical centers last year offered higher salaries and incentives to specialist nurses than to primary care doctors?
  • According to Meritt Hawkins and Associates (MHA), primary care doctors were offered an average base salary of $173,000 in 2009 vis-à-vis the average base salary of $189,000 for certified nurse anesthetist or CRNAs?
  • MHA’s projections for 2010 showed that CRNAs average base salary ($186,000) will still be higher compared to family physicians ($178,000) ?

*CRNAs are advanced practice nurses who administer anesthesia to patients. A salient difference between CRNAs and anesthesiologist is that “when anesthesia is administered by a nurse anesthetist , it is still recognized as a practice of nursing rather than a practice of medicine”.

So, nurses out there, my relatives and friends  ….I  guess this is a good investment. It appears that there is a pot of gold after undergoing a training for and being certified as CRNA. A paradigm shift in your current field of expertise may be worth considering!

  1. Hello, are you kidding! If I had known earlier I could have prevented the break up with my nurse girlfriend who has been in the field for long. But no, it was okay. I can get another one! Money is not everything….. Great job.

  2. Yes, this is true! Some of my friends in the nursing profession have started to level up and train for this. Thanks for posting this kind of excellent relevant info on the web. Really like your style of writing!
