CRNA vs. MD Paper

  1. Hi All,

    I'll be finished with my BSN in a month and my last class involves writing a position paper. Since CRNA is my eventual goal I decided to write about acceptance of the CRNA vs. MD. I know there have been posts about this topic but I can't seem to find it. So if any of you have any input about this topic (pros and cons) that would be wonderful.

    Aren't most of those studentdoc discussions emotional, personal and often hostile? I'm not sure that is the best source for an objective look at the issue.

    I know has good descriptions of CRNA practice. I'm sure the ASA website has similar position statements. I think those would be more helpful to you.

    Watchful Care by Bankert is a great source on the history of the evolution of nurse anesthesia practice. It is a book, but selected readings out of it would be useful, if this is a paper of any length and/or substance.

    Advanced practice nursing, an integrated approach, by Ann Hamric is a great textbook that probably covers this.
