A friend of mine just called me to say he was selected for CRNA School. He was even called by the Chief Executive Nurse of our hospital to congratulate him on his selection. I was so happy for him as I know how important this was for him and his wife.
But after the congratulatory remarks were delivered he was then asked to come in and cover the unit (he currently is on Christmas Leave with his family) because of staffing issues. Is it me or is that a bit tacky?
But then again that's nursing!
But no matter. Congratulations (you know who you are) and way to go!!!
