Here we go on another AA train. I wonder if the AA boards have the same number of resuring questions about CRNAs?
the AA boards dont because there is not enough of them,,but the MDA boards sure do......in florida there is a fast track bill to license AAs just like there has been every year for along time.....more than likely it will pass eventually. The anesthesia pie is a big one that the MDAs want more of......its not about safety
or access or anything is about money and politics and the battleground is in state and fedral governement and the bullets are dollars and time given to your association.........
two questions I have:
i know the CRNAs have more autonomy but when i look at gasworks under job descriptions it seems the majority of positions say they will be under the direction of an MDA 100% of the time............how would the role of an AA and CRNA differ in this scenario? Honest question that i dont know the answer to
How hard wold it be to make AA a specialization of PA or intergrate AA into PA schools.... i would assume that all that is missing is facilites and educators, big stuff i know, i would guess the MDAs and AMA would be willing to foot some of the bill for this stuff.
I have not gone back to read the various threads on AA's but i would hope that the prevailing opinion of CRNAs is that the "threat" is real.
