  5. 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.

  6. How much do you make?
    Respectfully disagree. For me providing anesthesia is far, far less stressful than being an SICU RN. For one thing the vast majority of my patients now are pretty healthy, when I worked in the SICU I...

  10. Teachers fueling the "my degree is better than your degree" problem
    Until recently the ADN-RN to BSN route had a huge advantage over the strait BSN route. Previous to about 2008 the only advantage of the strait BSN route was the whole "college experience". For young...

    The Epi was in a liter bag!!!!? You didn't know the concentration of the medication you gave in a code? How did you document how much you gave on the code sheet?

  18. Are CRNA's facing an oversaturation also?
    Judging by the high volume of job offeres my classmates and I recieved prior to graduation I would say no. I had my pick of dozens of job offers in my state and hundreds if I was willing to relocate.

    Call the nursing supervisor to expidite the transfer to ICU so this patient can be under the care of an intensivist and not a new ER physician.
