And if I choose to become (someday) a CRNA then the goal will be from the beginning to eventually go into research to:
perfect the art,
contribute to the process,
and make the job easier........
for me personally, my background in Engineering coupled with being a Nurse will prove to be very fruitful whatever I decide to do, just gotta decide. You have all been very helpful, again thanks.
