    Congratulations-------------------- BUT YOU'RE NOT DONE!!

    Yes school is done but now you start the really important stuff- providing top-notch, quality anesthesia care to each and every patient, ACTIVELY participating in your state and national organizations--Vote, lobby, be on a committee, express your opinions (but back them up with action), donate to the CRNA-PAC and the AANA Foundation, recruit the next generation into nurse anesthesia---- give back to the profession!!!! My mother (a CRNA 77 years young) is retired from active practice but still doesn't consider herself done giving back!!! Good Luck:kiss

    Nice, I am jealous, but not envying you taking boards.

    19 months to go and counting.

    Congratulations!! Remember that graduation and boards are entry level. Continue to pursue your reading and get active on the state or national level (Mid-year assembly is a good place to start). Our profession is only as good as the people who participate. We are a proud and GREAT profession and have been for over 100 years. It is up to you and your fellow graduates to keep it that way. We have many new threats to our profession and we need active, involved and informed practitioners to defeat them. The 90/10 rule (90% of the work being done by 10% of the people) will no longer work! PLEASE be a part of the solution.

    At least once per year do a SWOT (strengths, weaknesses, opportunities and threats) analysis of your practice and your profession. This will help you see where you are, where you can improve and what is against you.
