Just wanted to tell everyone I am going to chart my progress no matter how small towards my goal of becoming a CRNA. The keyword to see all the posts will be progress. It is my hope, this will help someone else but also allow me a journal of sorts to watch as my knowledge changes.
Today I spoke with the RN in charge of our ICU about transferring there. The thing that might be of interest (to the novice at least.) was that the whole conversation revolved around critical thinking. Why things worked the way they do, why the pt on the vent is hypotensive and etc. This seems to be just what I need to learn to better prepare to be a SRNA
and do well during a admission interview.
Next move will be to actually switch to ICU and the dreaded 12hr night shift.
I will keep you posted. Let me know what you think.
