Well said, Tenn.WOW! You know I agree completely from what I know of AA's (admittedly not a huge amt) that CRNA's have better education, are better prepared to be safe anesthesia providers. But I guess what really is the most significant thing to me about the bill is the fact that when we as a nursing profession pull together- look what we can acomplish. Asserting ourselves as nurses and our profession of nursing as a unique and necessary part of the healthcare system is vital to keeping nursing strong. In the Louisiana bill, CRNAs are the preferred providers for anesthesia. I think that is AWESOME! It speaks a lot to how much respect is earned once you get thru the hell of CNRA school.
