How Long Does it Takes to Become a CRNA?- To become a CRNA, one must have a four year degree in Nursing and graduate from an accredited school of anesthesia which takes 24 to 28 months, totaling in 6 years and 4 months of schooling.


You need a Bachelor's in Nursing and after working in an ER or ICU setting for 1-3 years you can apply to Graduate school to apply for their Anesthesia program which typically takes 2-3 years to finish. After graduating you take a license exam and become certified.
