Hello guys,

I 'm in highschool right now and I'm thinking of becoming a nurse anesthetist. I'm going to go to college somewhere here in the Midwest. When I grow up, I really want to help the needy. I want to donate money to charities and travel around the world and help the sick/poor/disabled. I kind of want to do what Angelina Jolie and Brad Pitt are doing. Will becoming a nurse anesthetist help me in doing this? If not, what other career options? I really want a good starting salary and not as many years in school (max would be 7-8 years including undergrad). On a side note, what are some abilities one must have to become a nurse anesthetist?

Thanks! =)
