As an Air Force O-6 (currently active duty as a PIC C141), I do not appreciate that a nurse (CRNA) may or may not be designated to provide my anesthesia care......anesthesia is the practice of medicine not nursing. CRNA are fine under the direction of anesthesiologists but totally unsafe as "solo" practitioners............yes, I was an advance practice nurse...so. please. nurses (CRNA) pleae spare me the "wannabee anesthesiologist drivel....you are not as safe as anesthesiologists"...suce substitution of midleval nurses as "anesthesia providers" is an insult to the USAF.......................
"What Employment Opportunities Exist for CRNAs?
CRNAs are in demand and therefore have many opportunities for general or specialty practice throughout the United States.
Reflecting the level of responsibility, CRNAs are one of the best paid nursing specialties. The reported average annual salary in 2005 was approximately $160,000."
Last time I checked, working in this country was not a "right."
It used to be if you did a **** poor job, you were fired, and someone more willing and better stepped in to do your work.
Too many people these days have a sense of entitlement. Unions simply add on to that entitlement clause instead of looking at the bigger picture. Everyone is struggling financially right now. We are about to see another major dumping on our economy with gas prices back on the rise.
Just my $0.02
