Maybe, I am just reading all the replies to this thread wrong, but... I do not see any "what the hell" type of attitude in the posts above. Sure the replies were informal, but this is the nature of this board - or in this case the lack of your proper use of capitalization.
As for getting "my feet wet", that alluded to the fact that I would be a CNA. I would not be referring to getting 'my feet wet' if I was going to be an OR Nurse. I have no prior OR experience...how would you suggest I get it? Shadow an OR Nurse is one option perhaps, but I cannot really think of another.
My original posts states that my goal is to become a CRNA. Now don't get me wrong a CRNA is a Nurse who generally works in the OR, but I do think there is a distinction between what most would consider the role of an OR Nurse and what most would consider the role of a CRNA.
Frankly, I found your post pretentious and making way to many assumptions about the replies posted (Projection perhaps?).
Thanks for bringing up the point about having a genuine interest and obtaining the skills necessary to work in the OR and the challenges I will face. Your experience is appreciated.
Of course, I shouldn't ask a question if I don't want to hear the answer...right?
