dont be lazy and not comment!
help a girl out!!
What you don't have a hospital or surgery center around you that you can go a personally talk to a CRNA yourself? You want me to spend 20 minutes typing up your homework when all you need to do is just go and talk to a CRNA yourself.
How is that fair to all the other nursing students that actually just come up and ask these questions of us in person, and then go home and type up the answers themselves?
Most of our communication is done through nonverbal cues. Nursing instructors need to start insisting these assignments be done in person not on the internet! You would learn a lot more by actually sitting down and talking to CRNA for 5 minutes rather than having he or she type out a half page of answers to preset questions.
