Well, I have 2 job offers at the moment and wondering what you guys think would be the better option as far as experience for CRNA school. I have 2 years general ICU experience at this time.
University does lots of transplants (kidney/liver) and with that comes lots of CRRT. Outside of that, they get lots of pulmonary cases
The Leve 2 Trauma ICU is a larger facility (twice that of the University) and does the obvious trauma. They get a mix of car wrecks, to high and low level falls, etc.
Both seem to have advantages and disadvantages as far as benefits, location, etc. The two are really a wash as far as those things. Im trying to find where I will get the best experience when I decide to further my education. CRNA school has been a big motivation to me and a big reason I got into nursing. The biggest hold back was simply the not working for 2 years, pulling loans, etc. After a few smart moves, we landed with some great land equity. If we are able to sell in the next year or two, we will have a paid off house and have enough cash to pay off all schooling cash, and I believe live on. The fiance will continue working. Relieving the financial stress will allow for my original dream to possibly come true. Thus, Im looking for the best experience to accomplish getting into school.
