I would like to find out if current CRNAs felt comfortable expressing their career goals of becoming a CRNA when interviewing for ICU positions and/or while working in ICU with managers or co-workers. I'm asking because I currently work on a general surgical floor, and I am preparing to look for opportunities in SICU with the ultimate goal of going to Nurse Anesthesia school. However, I have gotten the sense that it is sometimes not best to share your goals of becoming a CRNA, even with your manager. This feels a little weird to me, because it is probably the first time I have felt that I needed to keep quiet about my career aspirations.
Can some of you share your thoughts and experiences about sharing your career aspirations of becoming a CRNA with co-workers before entering anesthesia school? Thanks.
