Top 10 Places for a CRNA to Live

No matter whether you’re just getting started in your career or you’re looking to move on to a new opportunity, there are a lot of different places you could choose to live. Luckily, we’ve compiled a list of the best places for a Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist (CRNA) to live. The list includes average salary in each of the top states, the concentration, or location quotient, of the profession in each state, and the difference between the national average salary and the average salary per state. We’ve also included a breakdown of degrees held by Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists across the United States.

Note: The concentration of each specialty is calculated by dividing the local concentration of the industry by the national concentration of the industry. If the location quotient is greater than 1, the industry makes up a larger share of that state’s employment than it does for the entire United States.
