hello everyone. I am new to the board and currently thinking of pursing nurse anesthesia as a career change. I am asking about the relationships between CRNA and anesthesiologists. I am all over the AANA website and it tells me lots of wonderful autonomy they have but then I wanted the other side of the coin and went to the ASA website and there were lots of gripes by anesthesiologists about their responsibilites being reduced, not wanting to teach SRNA
's and lots of other sour grapes sounding comments. So how is it in the field???
If someone can relay their experiences with the anesthesiologists, what "supervision" really constitutes, call for CRNA but not anesthesiologists. . .everything you can to let me know what kind of environment (friendly or hostile) it is out there.
the pride of july!!!
