preparing for that first job....

  1. Wondering what advice CRNAs have about that first job...
    My clincals are at a level 1 trauma center, should I stay at a large facility to avoid loosing new skills (i.e. heads, hearts, trauma, OB, peds) or go to a small(er) hospital? What are potential questions that I should make sure I have answers to? What about salary vs hourly pay?
    I have about a year left of school and funds are dwindling. Currently I am a 'free agent' (meaning i have no stipend as yet), anyone know of availability of funds in NC or FL?
    thanks!

    Go for volume, 2B

    Lots of cases, lots of acuity; after the first year or two, you'll be ready to go anywhere and tackle whatever.

    (Graduation is actually only the true beginning of your education in anesthesia.)

    It all depends on where you are going? What kind of practices are you going to?
