o.k., first of all, I wouldn't worry too much about senior srna's, b/c they are still learning, allbeit, much more comfortable than you are, but still learning. Secondly, I am currently in clinical, and I do have some advice for ya.........First of all, every crna has their particular way of doing things, you need to write it down and keep track, and tell all of your clinical srna friends, so that everyone knows........It seems silly I know, but that is what we do!!! ha ha.....At least when you go to do an emergence with said crna, you know how he/she wants it done, that way you don't get the 10-15 minute lecture on why his/her way is the only way it should be done.................On the other hand, you will learn which crna's are very open to you doing whatever that you want to do..........If you want to use a particular drug, or a particular technique, etc, then be sure that you know these drugs/techniques well and can justify it per patient individuality...........Anywho, you will learn which crna's will allow this, and you will be greatful for their existence!!!More importantly, I find that the OR staff/ not the CRNA's are the hardest to deal with!!! Let me know if anyone else agrees..............There are going to be OR RN's who have seen about a million inductions, etc, and they really and truly believe that they know more about anesthesia than you do!! ( Hey, for all I know, they probably do). But, just don't respond to their comments and focus on the patient.............Surgeons have comments at times as well, but I just tell them, Hey I'm learning today, and I bet like a million years ago you weren't the fastest doctor at suturing now were ya?? Sometimes I get a laugh, sometimes a really ugly look!! I guess just be able to laugh at yourself, b/c you are going to make so many fumbling little mistakes........................
quote=jin00005;2452612]I am going to clinical twice a week during this semester. Sometimes, I meet instructors or senior students who demend pretty excessively on the overall performance. I try to accept all the advices that they give to me, because most of them make me sense for the educational developments to be successful as a SRNA. In someway, It gives me too much stresses which makes me feel unhappy about what I am doing. This is the last semester of didactic section. 4-7th semesters will be all full time clinicals. maybe I will get used to this environments someday in the future.
If there are somebody who been through this earlier than me, please give me some advces how I can be successful and become less stressful in the clinical for the rest of school period.
I know and feel that CRNA school is not easy to go through,But I am trying to think any good things that can motivate me at least. any coments will be appreciated. thanks
