the up front simple answer is Yes.

But at what price, and how long will it take….wow…could be an expensive way to go and a long row to hoe.

A middle ground position might be Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist (CRNA)


The site of the American Society of Anesthesiologists

You’ll have to go through medical school, just like any other medical specialty. An anesthesiologist is an MD. There’s no route other than medical school.

Nursing and practicing medicine (being a doctor) aren’t interrelated pathways. A doctor isn’t a senior nurse, and a nurse isn’t a junior doctor. Different schools, different degrees, different responsibilities.

If you have a Bachelor’s in Nursing, you can attend grad school and get a Master’s. It usually takes around 3 years for a BSN to become a nurse anesthestist.

If you have an Associate’s in Nursing, you’ll need to get your Bachelor’s first (depending on the school and your degree, 1-3 years).

An anesthesiologist is a doctor so you have to go through medical school. However, you can become a nurse anesthetist with a Masters from an RN.

The other two answers are correct. However your question is not. Read it again. I cannot follow from to and from a m. Sorry but you are going to learn to write better, just to get into college.
