    Congrats Craig! I've watched a few on this board go through school and graduate and I'm so elated for all. Now get on with a great life and stay away from the computer until your vacation is over!

    Congratulations upon your passing your board exams.
    It is true that hard work pays off in the end.
    Now, Kevin was just joking about picking on SRNA's. They are already too stressed out, please instead share your knowledge with them.

    Just wanted to offer my congrads. as well. I remember reading some of your Anesthesia blog a while back, and it was fairly informative, esp. for the student considering anesthesia as a career.

    Does this mean you're going to resurrect the blog?

    Congrads again.

    Congratulations, it is well deserved. I am only 9 months through our 28 month program and I can only say I am envious that you are finished. Although I am enjoying my program immensely, the amount of material that we must learn in such a small amount of time seems at times overwhelming. It gives us all comfort when we hear of those who pass their boards. Again, congratulations. Please stay in touch.

    Congratulations on your boards. Now here's a list of things you need to do-1. Start your new job 2. Go to a state meeting and volunteer for a committee 3. Donate to the AANA Foundation to help the students that are following after you. 4. Donate to CRNA-PAC to help fund the fight to preserve practice rights at the federal level. Donate to your state PAC to fund the fight at the state level. 5. Be a clinical and/or didatic instructor as a way of honoring those who taught you. 6. When your AANA dues notice comes- PAY IT! IT's the best bargain for the profession. 7. Spend your CE dollars wisely- use some to support your state orgainzation, some to support schools-don't send it all to the MDs. 8. When you get a ballot (state or national AANA) vote, if you don't know all the candidates find someone who does and listen to them or at least vote the races you know.

    Always remember the Anesthesia Pioneers that fought year after year to get us where we are today. Honor the past, contribute to the present, and build for the future!!!!! Always remember you are part of a profession built on caring for patients and not just working a job!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!
