I read the following post on a student doctor's forum:
"Agreed. CRNA's and nurses in general aren't the smartest group of people out there.
The CRNA backlash has already begun. In response to CRNA's push for autonomy, anesthesiologists are supporting AA's and being careful how they train SNRA's. Long-term, both are very bad for the future of CRNA's. CRNA's had it pretty good for a while but a few militant of them became greedy and wanted more. I think most CRNA's will regret what a few have done to their profession.
Once more anesthesia automation enters the OR, I think the point of autonomy will be less and less important because the team model will prevail in that setting.

Im wondering, what does this mean? What are the ramifications to CRNA's based on this post, if what he says is in fact true?
