    By the way, Intra-aortic...

    I just found out from AACN that there are only 129 (including you and me) nurses nationwide that hold both the CMC and CSC credentials simultaneously... something to be proud of for sure...

    Congrats!

    Hey Xigris... Are you able to maintain CCRN-CMC-CSC through your clinical hours as a CRNA? I see on the AACN website nurse anesthesia was counted... but I know a lot of CRNAs let their CCRN and subspecialties lapse because maybe they didn't know better... I had intended to keep mine as a CRNA but when I come up for renewal I'll have already qualified for my first three year round after anesthesia school... I'm planning ahead already for the renewal after... The hospital I plan to work after anesthesia school has CRNA Cardiovascular team...

    Yes, I am. I am still directly involved in critical care education. I spend some of my free time doing lectures and hemodynamics training. That if I have enough free time left. DNAP is harder than I thought with a full time job.
    CV anesthesia is challenging and I am enjoying it. Good luck. Where you going for anesthesia school?

    I just passed CMC a couple of weeks ago. I thought it was harder than CCRN personally. I barely squeaked by but whatever. I used the Med-Ed program and Pass CCRN, the med ed was okay, kind of helpful but not over the top. I'm now the 3rd CMC in my state!
