  2. Using Propofol for conscious sedation
    Legally it's not considered euthanasia as long as it is being given with the intention of making the patient more comfortable, even if it is recognized that giving propofol may hasten the patient's...

    IVs
    Don't stress about it too much. I started anesthesia clinicals with very little IV experience, for the same reason you mentioned (all my ICU patients already had tons of access). When we first...

  4. the SEE exam
    I took the SEE for the first time last fall; I didn't study at all -- just wanted to get it over with and see where I stood. I take it again this fall prior to graduation. To study, I would...

  5. SRNA careplans
    So sorry to hear your instructor is tearing apart your care plans. That sucks! I agree that Jaffe's book is invaluable. I have Roizen's too -- it's great too, but pretty hard to come by. Good...

    I discovered this site: http://www.freewebs.com/ginacareplans/ I downloaded all of the care plans from the Southern Illinois site but I'm not sure how to share them. Hope this helps!

  7. Did You Settle for Nursing?
    I can't tell if the OP is kidding but I think she's serious. This is why the popularity of shows like "Grey's Anatomy" and "House" makes me nuts. People will say "it's just TV," but clearly there...

  8. Medical helicopter crash kills doctor, nurse, pilot
    I think it has to do with fixed wing aircraft being able to glide or something, whereas helicopters drop more quickly? Plus, don't helicopters fly lower, so they might have less time to fix the...

  9. Using same syringes all day
    Are you freakin' kidding me? That's horrifying! What is wrong with people? I had no idea how widespread these dangerous practices were! I remember when I was a nursing student, I stuck myself...

  10. Helpful PDA programs?
    I've heard that the old cellular phones might have interfered, but that today's digital ones don't. I also recall reading something about having to be less than 3 feet from the monitor for there to...

  11. How's everyone's semester going?
    It's so nice to hear how people are doing. I'm especially encouraged to hear of someone losing weight during clinicals, because I (as well as several of my classmates) have gained 5 or 6 pounds this...

    It's so nice to have our own forum! I wanted to help get this forum started. I'm in my first semester of a front-loaded program; it's really flying by! I'm loving my classes and my fellow SRNAs. ...

    Hi Melissa, Someone once said something to me that I thought was quite valuable. This was several years ago when I was trying to decide if I wanted to go to nursing school or to med school. She...

  14. mother dies after refusing blood transfusion
    Some patients will refuse their own blood even if it's given via a cell saver. The way it's been explained to me is that once the blood is not in continuous contact with the body it can't be...

  15. mother dies after refusing blood transfusion
    That was my first thought when I read the biblical passage quoted in one of the news articles. Of course, seventh day adventists are supposed to be vegetarian, but I've met more than a few who don't...

  16. Pet Nurse??
    I would be absolutely furious. Vaccines are not benign, especially in cats. There is a type of cancer in cats that's linked to vaccinations, and although it's rare, it's still a big deal when it's...

  17. Calling yourself a "nurse"
    Megan, I'm so sorry to hear what you've gone through. Just wanted to say that your BSN isn't taken away from you just because you aren't working as an RN. Did you keep your RN license? Were you not...

    OP here. I was just wondering how this thread had devolved into yet another argument. All I wanted to know was if the term "PA anesthetist" is used much, as I'd never heard it before :)

  21. An Answer Will Save Me......
    I guess we're all just a little confused here. Are you an RN in Finland? Do you want to go to CRNA school and work as a CRNA in the US? If so, could you come here and work as an RN, get some...

    I totally agree with ready4crna. I enjoyed the program and don't regret going the ASN, then RN-BSN route even though I could have done a second degree BSN program. You can't beat the price, and the...
