Job Shadow CRNA?

Published

I am a nursing student in the Dallas Fort Worth Area and am interested in jobshadowing a CRNA. I would like to shadow a female CRNA in a private practice, if possible. Does anyone have advice about the best way to do this? Thank you for your time!

If your in school you could try somthing like your schools student services office (that's what it's called at my school). They should be able to help. Or contact your counsler and ask them about shaddowing oppertunities that might be available and who to contact. This is what I did. Another idea is to contact the big hospitals in your area, like level 1 trauma centers. They have the designation "Level 1" in part because the take on a larger community education presence than other hospitals do. Hope this helps. I don't know what to do about the private practice or female CRNAs. I guess you could contact them too but there might be liability issues they might be more concerned about. To be honest I see where your comming from assuming your female, but I felt incredably privlaged to be able to see anything at all CRNA related and then I got lucky. Good luck to you.
