Gastroenterologist here investigating on behalf of family member. Work with CRNAs every day, see the obvious benefits of the career. And since I know you all just love that "room air general" for my prone septic biliary patient, I was hoping to get some help.

She's looking at doing a direct NP program out of undergrad where she gets her nursing degree and her NP in 3 years without intervening clinical experience. Are there any such programs for anesthetists? I tried searching myself but didn't have much luck.
