Alaska, known as the Last Frontier, is located in the northwest extremity of the West Coast of the United States.  Although the #1 largest State in the US by size, Alaska is the least populated State with the least number of universities as well.  With that in mind, it should come to no surprise that there are no CRNA Schools in Alaska.  The largest universities in the State, the University of Alaska and Alaska Pacific University, do not offer nurse anesthetist programs.  The Council on Accreditation of Nurse Anesthesia Educational Programs, which accredits nurse anesthesia programs within the US, is very strict and they have not approved any CRNA programs in Alaska as of 2021.

There are currently 122 CRNA schools in the United States and 2.4 CRNA schools in each State on average.  To compare, there are 13 CRNA schools in Pennsylvania and 9 CRNA schools in Florida.  In addition, North Carolina and Tennessee both have 6 CRNA schools.  Other States which are similar to Alaska and do not have CRNA schools include Nevada, Idaho, Wyoming, Vermont, New Mexico, New Hampshire, Montana, and Hawaii.  There are also not many nurse anesthetists professionals who are living and working in the State of Alaska.

CRNA Programs in Alaska Acceptance Rate

In general, the easiest CRNA schools to get into by State are generally in the States with more CRNA schools.  For example, the average acceptance rate for CRNA schools in Florida is 30% with 9 CRNA Schools.  This compares with an acceptance rate of 13% for CRNA schools in Georgia and 24% in South Carolina, which only have 2 CRNA schools.  Because there are no CRNA Schools in Alaska, this would not apply.
