  12. My journey to become a SRNA.
    I agree it doesn't hurt but once you get into school you will find out how little intubating means. Managing the airway as a whole is the most important. I did over 1,000 cases and intubated 500 or...

  17. Poll: Your Badges
    If you saw it in an article then that should answer your question. I sign my name on a daily basis and only put CRNA after my name. Badges would probably be based on hospital policy.
