I really wanted to post somthing.
I just spent the weekend with several TCU students and the director of the program there. This weekend was the states association confrence. TWU had a very lack luster showing. I was dissapointed. TCU had a phenomenal contengency. I had several good conversations with Kay Sanders. Her and her students were very kind to me ( and you know they know who I am.. " the poster of eronious blasphemy")
I came to this relization. Kay is the mother of many, many CRNA's. I think that she alone has done more to fulfill the admonition of the AANA to crank out more CRNA's than any other one person or entity. Did you know that between the two schools now, there will be... well about 170 or so students the year I graduate. giving a needed bolus to the shortage. this is the best way to secure our future jobs. "If we dont feel the stools at the head of the table, someone else will" to this end. it is now my conviction that she is helping to save our profession.
sure you say... "you had to eat crow cuz you came face to face with them".. I can see that point. and I did eat crow but it was because I wanted to. I spent an evening at the deuling piano bar in dallas with those guys since our class didn't show. good times..
this reminds me of something my mom tried to teach me. She used to always say. "It is better to remain silent and thought a fool. than to speak up and remove all doubt" I wonder why she said that to me sooo much
