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.

This applies to CRNA jobs in Ohio as well – Ohio is #3 in the US in terms of most number of nurse anesthetist jobs.
CRNA Programs in Ohio Acceptance Rate
The average acceptance rate for CRNA programs in Ohio is 27%. This is very similar compared to the national CRNA average acceptance rate of 26%. 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.
