  1. Average age of SRNA?

    I'm 26, and I think I'm one of the youngest. But we may have a 25 year old, though I'm not too sure
  2. I guess overall, I feel like it's for me, but soooo not for some of the others who want to do it. Although I don't mind the job I do now, which includes a huge amount of excrement and bodily fluids... I am extremely mathematically and scientifically...
  3. Worst med error - stories?

    Talk about resuscitating a thread from the dead!
  4. Dismised from NAP-- Any chance of getting into another?

  13. Work's reaction when you mention CRNA school

    When I let the cat out of the mouse I still had good assignments, in addition people sent me farewell wishes, good bye emails, and a POTLUCK! Oh, and I was called a traitor more than once per shift Still miss that unit, but I love being unemployed ...
  14. Quickest Route Possible

    Yes it's doable, my experience is very similar to SRNA 2011, but I knew of two people from my old unit that got in with 6 and 8 months experience (at time of acceptance). The one with 8 months worked in public health prior to nursing, no certs, but t...
