    She wasn't venting. Venting is saying, wow my day sucked today bc this happened....She was putting down nursing as a profession...saying it's not respected and the worst job anyone could have and actually going out of her way saying that her mission in life is to stop people from going into nursing. That's messed up on so many levels and downright insulting!

    [quote=carolmaccas66;5726805]OK, now it's MY TURN to rant uncontrollably!

    Holy shiz. That was one long depressing bashing message about nurses and their profession. How long have you been a nurse?

    No offense, but I hope people do not listen to all of that bc it is not true at all. I LOVE my career as a nurse and I hope more people go into nursing because it is a very good career choice. YEs there are some cons, but there are cons to everything. My sis and I are both nurses and we love our many other people we know and are friends with are not fond of their jobs or hate their jobs...they have non-nursing jobs.

    Nursing is a very respected profession.

    Nice. I wish I got into the ICU right after I graduated. I spent almost 3 years on a medical/tele floor.

    There are NO online CRNA programs. The ones in new england/mid atlantic areas are 28-36 months....Some SRNAs do over 500-1,000 O.R. cases and a TON of clinicals hourse dealing with real patients and real anesthetics. So much training, and they make it seem so small and miniscule.

    Hahaha. It just sucks that people will read that and BELIEVE it. They also make it seem like, the 4 years someone is in Medical school...that they are studying and practicing anesthesia for those 4 years. Such crap.

    They also have the nerve, and hugely false information, that nurse anesthesia school is ONLINE!!!

    Quote from I_See_You_RN
    No more pee?? you will live by pee. During big operations it will be your job to climb under the OR table making sure not to contaminate anything and MEASURE PEE! intake and output will be critical. You need to know their perfusion status, you need to know their total output,.. are you overloading them, do they have comoridities which would make this even more dangerous (chf), are they in acute renal failure? does it appear that their GFR is sufficient enough to handle the dose of medications that you are giving them? Not all cases will have central lines and CVP and arterial line measurements,.. even long ones. So appreciate pee and get ready to be infering a lot of information about the patient just from their pee.

    I think he/she was probably referring more pee, meaning no more cleaning up pts inc of urine and stool

    Has anyone seen the grossly misinformed website called "Doctor by your side" ????

    Website is a complete joke. I was just looking at it and the misrepresentation of MDA's vs. CRNA's is pretty disgusting. It's sad that this is an actual website for the public...another area for people to be misinformed and then form wrong opinions about CRNAs.

    So you got 4 year in pre-med, and then did an accelerated BSN??? how could you get a BSN and be in CRNA school at 24? did you finish your BS in pre-med in a year? i'm so confused. Did you go to college when you were 16?

    Hey guys. I was hoping I could get some CRNA's opinions on this matter.

    Do you find that the CRNA's tend to do the "easier cases"....i.e. ENT and ortho, and then the MDA will do the more difficult cases, i.e. cardiac or complicated GI??

    Is this true, or not true?? Can someone explain all of this to me ?

    Thanks so much

    Hey guys, Just wondering what you all perceive to the average age of SRNA at your schools. I'm 27 and started in the ICU 3 months ago, so prob won't be in school for CRNA until i'm 30? If i get in
