CRNA's Getting Yelled At and No Respect?

Posted

Specializes in Ortho and Tele med/surg.

I'm thinking about becoming a CRNA, but after talking to a nurse who said she shadowed a CRNA for day she said she would never choose to become a CRNA. She told me that the surgeons were yelling at the CRNA and they get no respect. Is it true?

Nonsense, been doing it for 25 years. Best decision I ever made besides marrying my wife. Better money, more respect less scut and way less running around. Best job in hospital if not an M.D. Ed

Not where I work. The Army has some highly skilled, high speed CRNAs, they wouldn't put up with that crap for a second.

Yes, there may be tense moments during big complicated cases, and sometimes things are said that may sound pretty brash, but an outright disrespect, never. I feel sorry for any surgeon with the audacity to disrespect any of my guys.

no not true, if they yell explain to them FIRMLY that you will be more then pleased to continue the discussion after the case until then they may not address you unless it is relevent to the case may call mr. or mrs. period.

I have no idea in what alternate universe a CRNA would get yelled at. But, I can tell you it does not happen in my world.. PERIOD. And furthermore, it will not happen to any student I am training.

I would disagree with the poster that said it was the second best job after MD. I would not take a cut in pay to be a pediatrician or GP. I think it is the best job in the hospital.

If someone will base a decision on what career they will choose based on what they saw in one day.. maybe CRNA is not really for them.. it does not sound like they put much thought into that decision.
