  1. RAnking of CRNA school
    In my area there seems to be a bias against NA's who were trained at schools in the Southeast. They have a reputation of not being well trained, in particular for independent practice. Schools...

  2. Anesthesia Growth outlook
    I would be careful using numbers from those buffoons over at BLS. Those are the idiots who are still claiming a nursing shortage.

  3. Anesthesia Growth outlook
    There seems to be PLENTY of NP jobs out there. Search USAjobs for NP jobs. I would say that the number of jobs available argues against saturation. On the other hand the relatively low pay being...

  4. How's this looking?
    You appear to be an outstanding candidate. I wish everybody would realize that getting into NA school is EASY! The standards are low for getting in. If you apply to 3-5 schools you are sure to get...

  5. Advice from CRNAs out there??
    I see no evidence of that at all. I am regularly contacted by head hunters and recruiters. All of the health systems here in the upper mid west seem to always have openings. My students all have jobs...

  8. Advice from CRNAs out there??
    If you are qualified NA school is very easy to get into. Pretty much everyone I know who wanted to got in. Good GPA, 3.0 or better, a degree, and 2-3 years of high quality ICU experience should do...

  9. Contemplating CRNA
    ICU experience is mandatory for CRNA. My school required basic chemistry within 5 years. I took it at a local community college. I also STRONGLY recommend you take a basic physics class. I...

  13. How I had multiple offers as a New Grad RN in a saturated Market
    I will second this. When I hear "Magnet" I write that hospital off as a potential employer. Among my friends and colleagues, all experienced ICU & ER nurses, many of whom have now gone on to CRNA...

  14. How do CRNAs get treated by MDAs ?

  16. Why are you a CRNA?
    There are three things I really love about anesthesia. First is the autonomy. I work as the sole anesthesia provider when I am working. I am not supervised in any way. I AM the anesthesia...

  17. IS MICU/SICU too much for New Grad?
    Any good ICU training program for new grads is going to strat them off on a busy med-surg floor with a preceptor. For a few months anyway. I would question any program that didn't.

  18. Do CRNA schools care where you got your BSN?
    This! I got my BSN through WGU and was accepted at 3 of the 4 school I applied to. You have to realize that: A) NA school is very easy to get into. B) Nobody cares where you got your degree....

  20. IS MICU/SICU too much for New Grad?
    So there are lots and lots of people out there who are not up on their EBP and believe that new grads must work their way up to ICU. It's not true. Evidence has shown that new grads can excel in ICU,...

  25. How much do you make?
    $90K? I Made considerably more as an ICU RN. I am amazed CRNAs are willing to work for $90K. I was offered $90K to cover another CRNA's baby leave for 3 months work.
