Way cool. Normal saline is 0.9%...same amount as in the ocean. Sounds fascinating.
I am starting at KPSA this fall. PM me. I can answer your questions.
$75 cash.... without question...
I worked full time nights shifts for five years through my undergrad education so I wouldn't ever be chained to a giant ball of debt. I would contemplate shooting myself if I had a couple hundred grand tied up in a nursing degree. Those nights shifts were absolutely worth it now.
You should get a Nurse Tech job in an ICU. That will get your foot into the door for a possible job out of school. Anesthesia tech may help, but not as much as an ICU technician. I got into Kaiser with 4 years of ICU/ER tech work and a year of ICU RN work.
^ they may make the same as a CRNA working in the same ACT practice, but rest assured, they make far less than a CRNA in private practice....
^^^^That is absolutely correct.
It all depends on where you want to live. the fact that there are over 212 active job listings (that doesn't include the 300 recruitment agency listings) on gas work means that there is work out there. You have to be willing to work anywhere in the country. Sunny Florida is absolutely engorged with CRNAs because of the mills that are pumping people out. The western and central parts of the U.S. are fine. I even have a job offer when I finish in my home state of Utah with a small private practice.
Same to you! Way to go! Excited to meet ya.
Jake!! I got my acceptance letter today too!!! SO EXCITED!!! I've been wanted to say that for the last 6 years!!! Hey, did you interview on the 13?... I wonder if I met you there??!
I just turned 24 and I'm starting at Kaiser this fall! SO excited and ready!
Just recieved my acceptance letter... WOOOOOOO!
Nope. Based on years past they usually send out notifications in the next week our so.
^^ very well said... The stress of being an icu nurse is nothing compared to being a crna.
They said they were looking for someone who can work with others. In the past there have been people that were far too type A who screamed and yelled at others on a whim. Not really appropriate in an OR.
