    Any non physician anesthetists, whether individually or corporately, one day realize they don't need to have their hand held by a doctor to do anesthesia. CRNA's knew that very early on and AA's are beginning to realize this now. One day there will be such a thing as a "militant AA" as far as anesthesiologists are concerned, if that entity doesn't already exist.

    The difference is that AA's practice at the pleasure of their state's board of medicine and can be dealt a lethal blow over a weekend. CRNA's are credentialed completely independently of any physician organization and as such are free to pursue or not pursue varying degrees of "independence" as they see fit.

    Take away? AA's need to play nice, regardless of the skill and experience they bring to the table. CRNA's don't.
    The problem with AAs being militant and wanting to break free is that they can not do this without going back to school and switching professions. They literally cannot practice independent of a anesthesiologist.

    I believe he stated that 72k was after taxes on his RN job.

    Thanks itrust. I appreciate your post. People are saying "google it, google it" but there's just such a wide range of numbers I don't know which one to believe. I apologize in advance if I offended anyone, it's just that the salaries are not clearly stated anywhere.
    Truthfully that is because there is wide range of pay depending on where you work. Some places are more desirable and pay less and some less desirable places pay more. Practice varies from hospital to hospital. Some people work under a W-2 and some a 1099. Two hospitals in the same city can pay drastically different amounts.

    I could not get into American school because I came to USA one year ago when I was already a medical doctor.Why you could not get into that even if you are American citizen?lol
    Some of us never were interested in medical school. Regardless I wouldn't pass insults back and forth. One person insulted you and you decided to make fun of the intelligence level of nurses as a whole. Since you are so smart I guess you don't need anymore answers from us lowly nurses.

    Correct. There's nothing wrong with the term nurse but I would never leave out the credentials of a CRNA.

    I would also also add that having a great GPA and experience is only part of the puzzle. If you don't interview well then they could care less about who you are or were. You could also get through most of your CRNA program and be removed. Some programs will remove poor performers and people with poor attitudes. Many people have been released after making it most of the way through.
