I'm curious about something, and I'd love to hear from you CRNAs out there. I should finish my school's Surgical Tech program next June while awaiting my spot in the ADN program. Reasoning? I'd like to work in a hospital, particularly an OR, so that I can get a real understanding of Life in the OR before I make the final decision to make myself and my education ready to apply to NA school. Working as a Surgical Tech will also allow me more scheduling flexibility to finish my BSN. Here's my question.....
Do you feel this experience will help me in the long run if I do decide to make a run on anesthesia school? Or do you think it will make little to no difference?
Just a side question....any CRNAs apply/attend/complete the program at PHRM in Columbia, SC?
As always, thanks a million for your input!
