Georgia, known as the Peach State, is ranked #16 in total number of CRNA Schools in the United States.  It shares the #16 CRNA School ranking with Maryland, Massachusetts, Arizona, New Jersey as well as several other States.  Nurse anesthetist students in Georgia enjoy very affordable cost of living in the State whether it be in the fast-paced cosmopolitan city of Atlanta or more family-oriented setting in Augusta.

Georgia is included in the RN Compact States agreement that means RN nurses in Georgia are able to move around freely and work within all 33 approved multi-license states.  However, it’s important to note that there is no such APRN Compact for nurse anesthetists yet though this may change in the future.  This is something that is important when people consider CRNA Schools in GA.

Nurse Anesthetist Programs in Georgia

There are two CRNA Schools in Georgia located in the cities of Atlanta and Augusta as shown below:

  1. Emory CRNA, Atlanta (Doctor of Nursing Practice)
  2. Augusta CRNA Program, Augusta (Doctor of Nursing Practice)

Both CRNA programs in GA only offer DNP degrees.  There are no nurse anesthetist schools in Georgia that offer MSN master’s degrees.  The Emory School of Nursing in Georgia is a very prestigious CRNA school and ranked #4 in the nation by US News and World Report.  The school is also ranked #9 for its Doctor of Nursing Practice program.

As of Year End 2020, there are 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.  On the other hand, there are no CRNA programs at all in Montana, Idaho, Wyoming, Nevada, New Mexico, Vermont, New Hampshire, Alaska, and Hawaii.  Oftentimes, the States with more CRNA schools tend to have more CRNA jobs as well.  This generalization applies to CRNA Schools in Georgia as the State ranks #12 in most number of CRNA jobs in the US, which is a great ranking.  This is one rank above South Carolina, which is ranked #13.

CRNA Programs in Georgia Acceptance RateThe average acceptance rate for CRNA schools in Georgia is 13%.  This is much lower than the national CRNA average acceptance rate of 26%.  This acceptance rate is only for Emory CRNA, which accepts 10 students each year in its coveted program.  Unfortunately, the Augusta CRNA Program, does not publicize its class size and 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.
