    Ever meet a nurse and scratched your head and wondered how in the world did they ever pass the NCLEX? Well, ask them what type of school they went to. I bet they don't say online...... I agree...

  5. How difficult is FNP school?
    I think you already know the answer to the question. The evidence is every single NP, I have met who came from the NP community has said the CRNA school is much harder than NP school. I do not think...

  6. How difficult is FNP school?
    The SRNA thread, as is the CRNA thread, is very moderated. They are only as insulting as the moderators will allow. Why don't you ask a moderator to tone down the replies over there? I would be...

  7. How difficult is FNP school?
    as you observed, there are a lot of compulsive, narssacistic egomaniacs in anesthesia. thats because the specialty demands huge assertive balls. I am NOT compulsive. Who told you that?

  8. Do you need hospital experience to function as a NP?
    It does not appear that any hospital experience is required. There are direct entry NP programs. And while TECHNICALLY hospital experience, albeit, not patient care experience, I have seen many an...

  10. Organ Harvesting Anesthesia
    Non brain dead organ donors are those who do NOT meet brain death criteria, BUT are going to be "terminally weaned" from the vent. In other words support will be withdrawn. The patient is taken to...

  11. What Happened To The Nursing Profession?
    I must say, I have to agree with him or her about the lack of critical thinking skills. I lay the blame on the maternalistic manner in which most nurses are taught... and then managed once they...

  12. What gauge IV to use?
    That's all good in the OR, but outside of the OR, there is very limited use of local anesth. for IV insertion by staff RN's. It is an ongoing issue of whether the RN can administer a parenteral (IE:...

  13. This Doesn't Seem Right--Is It Just Me?
    Trivial? I would submit what they are doing is almost worse than physical abuse. To take a group of people, many of which are of a diminished mental capacity, and preach voodoo, complete with chants...

  14. What gauge IV to use?
    With local anesthetic... 1 or 2 % lidocaine with bicarb intra-dermal prior to insertion.... a 14 guage feels exactly like a 23 guage in the hands of a veteran practitioner.

  15. Online nurses prove skeptics wrong
    I am not angry at anyone.. I only stated an ONLINE degree is not comparable to a traditional degree. Try to get into a CRNA program with an online, ab initio, degree. And I was an REMT-P, so I...

  16. Alternative Airway Knowledge
    Cutting the pilot tube as a student will get you a very poor eval and kicked out of the OR to go look up articles. Cutting the pilot tube is darned near malpractice. The pilot tube on...
