I haven't seen a thread on this site about this issue yet and I thought I would ask if anyone has any thoughts? As far as I can understand, this would be a big step forward for CRNAs (everywhere) if this passes the Florida House of Representatives. Perhaps I am naive and incorrect, perhaps not. Do any of the CRNAs on this board have any thoughts or comments about the implications (positive or negative) regarding this legislation?
Here is one anesthesiologist's opinion -which is how I found out about the proposal in the first place. I have not seen or found any retorts or counters to his comments from the CRNA community that are quite as prominent as this doctor's.
With all sincerity, I'm not trying to start a MD.A vs CRNA argument, I'm just somewhat of an outsider looking for opinions on the implications of what this legislation might mean for CRNAs -and not just in Florida.
