I am a nursing student aspiring to become a CRNA one day. I was reading about the history of the profession and came across this question :

If nurse anesthetists were the first to provide anesthesia in the US, why do they have to be supervised in some states???

Thank you guys!! Im trying to decide between crna and np. I'm torn between the two because I also like learning about diseases and how to manage and treat them but anesthesia is also appealing
