  8. How useful is ICU exp when you are finally a CRNA
    I am very thankful for my 4 years of ICU experience whenever I care for an ICU patient in the OR. Granted most anesthetics aren't on ICU patients, but when the patient is an ICU patient, I don't know...

  11. Internal (facility) issue and questions
    The name tag might seem like a small issue, but it's not. Name tags are a method of informing the public of the qualifications of those providing care. I would not wear a name tag stating RN when I...

  12. Wolford College Lawsuit Update
    Hospital based CRNA certificate programs were the norm, but they were 'run' by CRNAs. In the 1940-60's when there were the largest numbers of these programs there were no anesthesiologists in many of...

  13. Wolford College Lawsuit Update
    I wonder if the anesthesiologists will keep the program open if they can't use the students to replace staff. They also are now required by the COA to achieve regional accreditation in the next...

  16. Why do anesthesiologists make more than CRNAs?

  17. MDA/CRNA infighting
