    'Retrospective studies don't prove anything!' Well I wouldn't go that far-I think we have determined that cigarette smoking is hazardous based on retrospective data. I donít discount that...

  2. CRNA nursing students who are over 40 and dismissed from their programs.
    'Hazing' can be described a lot of ways. I don't consider it hazing if a nurse in the OR has an impatient tone because the patient is taking a long time to wake up. In the students opinion it was...

  3. Wolford College Lawsuit Update
    The accreditation standards require the program director and assistant PD to be CRNAs. Standards required the PD to have control over budget and curriculum. Obviously though, however hires/fires has...

  4. Anesthesia Growth outlook
    Most of my CRNA friends work a lot, and their schedule can prevent them from attending family events on occasion. Depends of what you call work/life balance.

  5. CRNA Schools that dont require..
    Go to CRNA School Search look for programs that are not MSN or DNP programs. There are quite a few MS or DNAP programs that will accept students with your educational background.

  6. Post anesthesia impaired memory
    Also in PACU patients can hear and remember before they appear 'awake'. I had a patient who was sure she had arrested in PACU. The patient had heard nurses talking about another patient (actually the...

  7. Debt vs. Future Income analysis, my realistic financial situation
    You have a good plan. Financially it'll work out and be worth it, especially if you stick with the 5 year repayment. You are saving before you start, are keeping expenses low, and have realistic...

  8. One semester left and I'm scared I'll fail!!
    You are burned out, and/or depressed-if at all possible take a week off. School is long and stressful. Consider seeking out someone to talk with-hopefully in your program administration. I've seen...

  9. CRNA's - can I pick your brains?
    The thing is, it isn't 'shifts'. It's whenever someone needs surgery, someone has to do the anesthetic. I would not plan on having more time with your family than you do now. Maybe you can work...

  10. Should I pursue CRNA or Med School? (Help)
    How long do you think a MS in anesthesia is? How long do you think a DN(A)P is? Seems like an odd reason to look at spending an extra 4-5 years in school.

  11. New Grad Orientation
    I had my own room right away, but it was fine. I'd been to several clinical sites as a student, so it was like a new site. Where I am now, new staff get an in depth tour and orientation to the...

  13. How do CRNAs get treated by MDAs ?
    That is incredibly misleading. There are CRNAs with bachelors degrees, but they are not BSNs. They all have advanced training in anesthesia, and all CRNAs always have.

  14. CRNA's - can I pick your brains?
    1. What made you decide for this route? I was an ICU RN and wanted more-more responsibility, to learn more, to remain in direct patient care 2. A Masters of Science in Nursing Anesthesia is a...

  15. RAnking of CRNA school
    Passing boards is 75% the student, and 25% the program (I just made that up, but that's how it seems to me). If a program picks students who do well on standardized tests, and are motivated, they...

    The clinical rotations for MDs are necessary because they begin the anesthesia residency with no patient care experience. I had 5 years of caring for patients prior to beginning anesthesia. I came...

    It is not difficult to obtain a nursing license in another state (I assume you haven't had any actions against your license in Oregon).

  18. AA student contemplating CRNA track...advice?
    A 'bridge' program is not possible because CRNAs are nurses first, and advanced practice second. And there may not be recognized differences in CRNA and AA functions in an ACT-but that is far from...

  19. From ADN to CRNA
    You must have a BS to enter a MS program-that's universal. For nurse anesthesia you also need critical care experience. It's becoming more difficult to get an RN position in a hospital setting, let...

    Personally I decided after being in the ICU for 4 years. But I think it is common for people to decide on nurse anesthesia prior to attending their nursing program. I saw a poster presentation...

  21. CRNA or DNP?
    In order to become a CRNA you must complete either a MS or DNP/DNAP program. Just like in order to become an RN you must complete either an ADN or BSN or diploma.

  23. Jane Fitch MD, prior CRNA, now Anesthesiologist elected president ASA
    Anesthesia residents don't put in 80 hours a week every week-some weeks-but it's actually a very small number of weeks. I would guess the average is 50 some hours a week for 3 years.

    The US News and World report rankings are highly suspect and most CRNAs don't put any weight in them. The data used to produce the US News rankings is very poor quality. A program administrator has...
