Pressures and stress of being a CRNA

  1. 0
    I've been an RN for 9 years and in critical care (CCU) for 3. I also have my BSN and am considering a carer as a CRNA.

    I'd like to get some idea of the pressures and stress of being a CRNA, especially as they compare to critical care nursing. How would you characterize the types of stress/pressure and how are they like or different from the stress/pressures of critical care nursing?

    I realize this is highly subjective, but I'd like to at least get a sampling of feelings.

    I'm still in my first year so I can't really tell you what it'll be like in the OR. The stress I face now is learning the information. There's a lot to know! I highly suggest you shadow a CRNA. Spend a day or two with them in the OR. You'll get to see it all first hand. And, it'll look good on your c.v. when you do apply for schools.
