    USC keck will probably have an opening. Also USC has a CRNA program. Kaiser will be difficult to get into.

    BART "bay area rapid transit" provides cheap and fast transportation all around the SF area. I personally went from San Jose to San Francisco for $6 and in under 45 minutes.
    You were on Cal Train...just trying to clear up any confusion for those reading.
    Bart only goes as far south as SFO.

    End up loving it?

    I'm strongly considering CRNA school for many reasons but primarily the salary. My opinion toward anesthesia right now is that it's not a passion or anything, I don't love it, I don't hate it, I'm very content/neutral toward it. This is holding back my decision to move forward because the schooling is so intense. Is there anyone that initially felt the same way as me but ended up falling in love with it? Anyone feel the same as me and regret pursuing CRNA?
    I think you would have a tough time trying to do a program that you have zero passion for. If you are highly motivated by money and if that is all the motivation you need go, for it. I am motivated by money but, can't do something I have zero passion for at this time.

    Turn on some Motley Crue "Doctor feel good"

    Quote from ThrowawayAccount
    I disagree. You mean to tell me that patient care is NOT affected when the ambulance doesn't return to service because the ED Dr. is giving the paramedic a BJ in the physician parking lot?! And yes, that's what is happening. How would you like to be the RN blamed for a mistake the Dr. makes because she's not focused on her job? Have an affair, get your jollies, I don't care. But do it on the clock? NO! Be professional!
    The clock is not always running. Breaktime they can do what they want. It is not professional to be doing that inside the facility or on the grounds, but it's their break. You can't speculate that they are actually on companies time.

    Quote from meanmaryjean
    I don't disagree that it is unprofessional. But it seems from your first post that you've reported them both - what do you expect further digging and prying and consternation is going to accomplish? And how exactly are YOU privy to their personal email exchanges?

    Let it go- it is NONE of your business. honestly
    I was wondering the same thing about the emails.
    OP-Did you hop on the MD's computer while she was at break and go through her personal emails? That is what it sounds like to me.

    Ultimately it is none of your business, why even bother mixing yourself up in a messy situation.
    OP- you sound bitter, like you have it out for the paramedic and doctor. Its her marriage, What goes around comes around.

    OP- you also have no idea what kind of marriage arrangement that doctor has with her husband. Traditional marriage is on its way out in America. Do not cause someone to lose their job.
    Like your username throw your way out their business.

    Quote from not.done.yet
    $38/hr is not common base pay in DFW for a three year nurse. More like low $20s to just over $30. UTSW may pay better, not sure, but you would not get anywhere near that anywhere else really.
    Baylor will put you at high 29. Methodist will put you at mid 30's. At Methodist if you do float pool full-time it's 42 for days, nights 46.

    There was a travel nurse on TV last year that bought a tiny home to move around the USA. It was on HGTV. Try to catch the episode to give you all insight on the pros and cons and what to consider when purchasing such home. You possible could look her up on the internet. google search tiny home "travel nurse tiny home hgtv". Moving the home was very costly.

    Plus you avoid family dynamics, hall buddies not wanting to help, being tripled in the ICU, constant favoritism assignments, I can go on and on.

    Why would you choose OR?
    Because OR nurses have an easier time finding a job either perm or travel. If you ever travel you will be paid, given max stipends, given the royal treatment for strike work etc. Just get yourself some CVOR along with general OR and you are set. I am currently experienced unemployed RN when 100+ applications in.

    What is your speciality? ICU, OR, Cath lab or L&D i so, you got royally screwed. If it was Med surg, dialysis, rehab, or home health you did probably slightly below average.

    STAY AT YOUR STAFF JOB. The industry has turned for the worst especially for ICU RN's. The pay is not good at all if you are currently benefited making 42 an hour. Keep that job. When traveling as an ICU RN you are looked upon as the you can do it all nurse. Meaning you are Step down, tele, med surg, then ICU last.

    I should have a new staff job by next week.

    Wait until the market changes.

    I know I am going to get attacked by the OR twins...in 3.2.1
