Most likely he would make 60 x weeks worked x hourly rate.
Most work 40-50 hours a week, as part of our regular job. Many, many, work more by picking up additional time, and call, and shifts. Some really get the bug, and take 24 hour call on weekends at second jobs, as well as what they do for their regular job. Or pick up plastics on the side. Or an OB gig on the side. Or a pain practice on the side. The work ethic of CRNAs is pretty darn impressive, and those that want to work non-stop certainly can, and will be rewarded handsomely for doing so.
Depends on how high the incision will be, but most of these can easily be done with a high lumbar. Even lower for the Aorto-bi-fem.
Yes. Lots and lots of physics. The responder above very eloquently stated just some of the daily applications using physics.
Seriously, if, if, if you don't think you could score well in physics, you should maybe direct your future to a different specialty.
Switch to an adult ICU for two years, and then apply. Take a grad level science or stats class in the meantime, and do very well. Those will go a long way.
Every application can have one hole in it, but currently yours has two. Both fixable. But since CRNA school is essentially 100% science, shouldn't you find out if that is the problem before you quit your job, move, and pay 20K for your first semester, only to flunk out?
Actually, it was very good advice that was given. School is stressful enough without having the non-stop and unending worries about money. No one ever regretted saving more. Never. No one ever regretted having more meaningful work experience as they transition to their new role. And lastly, depending on what school they attend, no one ever regretted having a safe and reliable, newish car, in good working order. Some students put over 50K miles on their cars during a CRNA program. Car worries, repairs, and poor attendance because of transportation problems do not serve any SRNA very well. Good preparation and acknowledging cold, hard reality, will be far more helpful to a successful SRNA, than just not asking tough questions and living in the state of denial. "Just do it" won't pay the bills, and certainly won't pass the tests.
Usually if a salary is listed, that is the amount for whatever standard shift that place offers. Then, extra work will usually be compensated for in various ways. It is a very wide bell curve of what normal is. Just call and ask
