In brief: Residency

Is a term reserved for the specialty training of physicians who have completed their medical training and have earned the their degree as a medical doctor. Crnas are nurses trained in anethesia and have no specialty training other than that.

In brief: No residency

Crna do not participate in a residency program. To become a crna, a registered nurse must attended an accredited 2 year program.
