    So. what EXACTLY is the magic number of hours a week a CRNA should work before you will let them put you to sleep? 8? 12?

    If a crna is already competent, just 8 hours a week can maintain competence. Do you think all surgeons actually perform surgery for 40 hours? Physicians have office hours and see patients. Depending on their specialty and practice size they can do 10 to 40 hours of surgery per week. In small cities it is possible a general surgeon has only one 8 hour scheduled day for surgery. Academics maintain competence with just one shift per week. It is not a matter of hours per week, but personal competence and innate ability. I have coworkers who say it feels awkward to take a few weeks off and to return to work. I have taken a month off and returned to work with absolutely no problem.

    Yes, I work in a large hospital and work with both part time and per diem CRNAs. Some hold 2 per diem jobs at 2 different places.
