    I'm not understanding why you're going nursing at all if you don't want to be around people...

    I would *highly* suggest more that 1 year of ICU experience. You will be administering anesthesia to patients during surgery. This is not the job for those who are just looking to make $$$.

    Hello All,


    3. I don't mind paying my dues in bedside nursing, but I would be happier in a less social, investigative, research type position.

    AFAIK a CRNA has to deal with at least 5-6, and more often twice or trice more than that, people at any moment. Only one of them is (hopefully) going to be asleep, and the rest commonly represents the worst sample of nuts, crazies or both... and no one leaves the room till the case ends.

    I just wanted to point out that I never said that I don't want to be around people, just in a less social setting. Certainly that's understandable to some degree. Since I'm not familiar with all units and specialties within nursing I can't provide a great example. But, I would assume, while both have the investigative aspect I'm looking for, ED would be extremely "social" and OR would be less. Feel free to correct me if I'm wrong.

    Thanks again everyone.
