Jason A. Duprat, Entrepreneur, Healthcare Practitioner and Host of the Healthcare Entrepreneur Academy podcast speaks with Alesia Quante, CRNA, career coach and educator for aspiring 1099 CRNAs. Alesia talks about her entrepreneurial journey from living on a sailboat and working as a travel nurse to pursuing her career as a CRNA and launching her online course. She highlights the pros of being a 1099 and the associated opportunities and freedom it provides. 



  • The opportunity to become a 1099 CRNA allows flexibility while creating and managing your practice.
  • As a 1099 CRNA, you're dipping your feet into entrepreneurship. You're in charge of managing your schedule, billing, taxes, healthcare benefits and setting up your business as an LLC or an S corp.   
  • The flexibility in this field is what makes it great. As an independent contractor, you can open an HSA which gives you power over your income.
  • There's a big learning curve when you transition from a W2 to a 1099 CRNA, however, the return on investment is astounding.
  • For example, you can deduct health insurance premiums from your gross income. You can also deduct car payments. 
  • Alesia started her 1099 CRNA Freedom Masterclass to help nurses interested in  transitioning into a 1099. 
  • Alesia was a student in Jason's Course Creator Academy beta program. She highlights the benefit of the course, including the key components and tools she needed to take her own online beta courses to greater heights. 
  • Your first online course isn't going to be perfect. Take the feedback and use it to improve the next one. The most important thing is to provide value to your students.
  • Evergreen courses allow you to generate sales passively. Students can enroll 24/7/365 so you have a consistent revenue stream. .  
  • Alesia shares her passion for reaching out to aspiring 1099 CRNAs and empowering them to start their own business.
  • Alesia advice is to move ahead, keep breathing and take it step by step. 
  • She also believes self branding is self affirmation It provides an inner smile so take time to celebrate yourself!



  1. A 1099 CRNA is an independent contractor and a business owner. It allows you to have freedom while still practicing as a CRNA. You can obtain multiple state licenses and  practice wherever you want, giving you power over your income.
  2. Transitioning from a W2 to 1099 CRNA has a learning curve. As an independent contractor, you need to learn the ropes, including billing, managing your business and setting up HSAs. Find a mentor who can help you shorten the learning curve. 
  3. Creating online courses isn't a walk in the park. You need to learn how to make your courses, funnel interested students and monetize the course. You should acquire the proper tools and find a mentor. 



“(On being a CRNA) Having your own benefits is what gives you mobility from job to job.”

 – Alesia Quante


“The power (of creating courses) is incredible and it's so much fun to talk to people about what you're really passionate about.” – Alesia Quante
