  1. Hi!

    I saw your post from last year on the USC CRNA 2018 page and had a few questionsif you don't mind. I am to complete biochem prior to March 2020. Did you take this course online and if so where and was it self-paced?

    USC CRNA 2018

    I am taking Conceptual Physics through UC Berkeley Extension. I compiled a list of potential classes that met my needs (had to be online with a flexible timeframe), ran it by the USC staff and got their approval.

    USC CRNA 2018

    Hello everyone, Here are some of my answers and experience. I attended one of the orientation sessions last summer before applying. Dr. Gold and the CRNA department professors are there to give some background about the profession, the program and ...

    Highs and Lows ICU style

    calivianya hit on a very, very good point. ICU is where I see the most futile care and the most narrow-minded statements about the patients' conditions. Every day someone makes a breezy, happy statement about the brass and silverware on the Titanic b...

    My friend is still looking for work

    Yes! Do you notice you are not as eager to talk about a great day at work or your latest success? I had a friend like this. I have had so many wonderful things go on in my life in the past two years but I could not share it with her fully. It felt ...
  8. I agree with the Supreme Court's ruling in spirit. I am not religious and I am pro-contraception, but I generally agree that a family-owned companies should be able to conduct their businesses in a manner congruent with their beliefs. The applicatio...

    New Intern

    Also, please listen when a nurse who deals with a lot of end-of-life issues tells you that a patient may benefit from stopping medical treatment and going into hospice. Everyone makes incorrect calls but, in my experience, it is mostly the doctors wh...

    New Intern

    This, in of itself, is a heartwarming post and thread. Thank you for the taking the time to seek advice! In addition to all that has been said above, please take heed when a nurse says something vague but ominous like "I do not know what is wrong, b...

    Highs and Lows ICU style

    I fit the bill. End of July will mark my first year in ICU, and I have worked in step-down, home health, postpartum, newborn nursery and floated to a bunch of other units. What do you mean by highs and lows? Do you mean emotional highs and lows, fas...

    Try this one. I really, really, really love this. I want you to see it and bask in its glory.

    asn-bsn-medical school

    Perhaps I did myself a disservice by saying I am "plugging away" at a BSN. I can assure you that every step I take in my work and school life is a reward in of itself. Nothing will go to waste even if I do not go to medical school. It has been eight ...
