Thank you all for all your suggestions and opinions, I really appreciate it. As of today I'm leaning towards the CRNA option just because of the amount of years it will save me. I just hope that I'm making the right choice and I dont end up regretting my decision when I'm older. Do you guys feel like there will still be a market for CRNA's in the near and distint future? And if so do you think it will still be as lucrative as it is today?
I'm sure this topic has come up numerous times before. I currently work in CTICU and I'm hoping to apply and get into a CRNA school. Lately, however, I have been considering changing things altogether and applying to med school. It would probably take me at least 10 to 12 years to finish everything because I still dont have all the pre-reqs necessary to sit for the MCATS. The problem is that even if I do the whole med school thing I feel like I would still want to do anesthesia anyway. So my question is this than, Is there a point to go through med school just to do anesthesia when I can go through CRNA school to do the same thing? Also, for those currently practicing CRNAs how autonomous are you? Do you still have to answer to the anesthesiologist at the end of the day? Are you only allowed to perform B&B cases or can you take on the more complex cases, and if so how does one get trained to specialize for the complex cases if there arent any CRNA fellowships? If you had the choice to do it over again would you still go the CRNA route or would you do MDA? Thank you in advance.
Thank you to all of you who replied. I really appreciate it.
Has anybody applied to the North Shore-LIJ critical care fellowship? If so, how did you apply because I'm having trouble applying online because there are no postings. Just wondering how I can start the process. Thanks for your time, I would really appreciate any help.
@I see you RN- Hey I'm gonna be graduating in December 2010 and I've been looking for nurse fellowship programs in critical care. Which hospital do you work for that has this type of program. Thanks in advance.
Does anybody know if there are any nursing externships/internships available at any hospital in the New York City area for the winter break?
