  1. NBCRNA and the AANA... WOW!

    The AANA must set standards for the highest possible practice situations. Whether or not you like it, without the AANA going for direct Medicare reimbursement and settling our right to compete in the marketplace, AANA would have become a subsidiary o...
  2. NBCRNA and the AANA... WOW!

    I am well aware of the credentialing issue that is coming up for an AANA bylaw change. This change is appropriate and is needed so that the CRNA credential stays an integral part of the profession. That can only be done by input from the profession...
  3. From Chemical Engineering to CRNA

    A science background is always a plus for anesthesia. We use both chemistry and engineering every day in our practice, although we may call it something else. I agree with the other comments, find a really sharp CRNA to shadow for a couple days. T...
  4. AANA (NON) membership anyone?

    Maybe the reason why no non-members respond is that there are very few of them who bother with internet sites involving anesthesia. One of the people who I talked to recently reinstated her membership because of wanting to read the Journal and News ...
  5. AANA (NON) membership anyone?

    [quote Bread Angel, If you think the AANA and it's lobbying group are resposible for your work conditions, hours and remuneration....US Department of Labor and market forces have much more resposibility. I don't think you have any idea of how the AA...
  6. AANA (NON) membership anyone?

    Do what you wish. Maybe you would be happier as a junior member of the ASA or even the ANA. I can guarantee that you will be vocal when you (1) lose your job, (2) have your hours cut, (3) have your hours extended, without additional pay or (4) be pa...
  7. Per diem/Part time CRNA positions?

    CRNAs can choose to work in whatever way they please, as long as there is a job for them. The marketplace rules. You seem to be way too obsessed with working part-time, that I suspect that you have no idea what a CRNA does.
  8. Personality traits of CRNAs?

    Some personality traits that I have noticed in CRNAs: --Obsessive compulsive --Patient oriented --Don't suffer fools very well --Must be mechanically oriented (trouble shooting) --Ability to multitask --Firm and in control when it comes to patient s...
  9. Per diem/Part time CRNA positions?

    It is well advised for you to get a lot of experience as a newly graduated CRNA. That experience is going to be at a full service hospital and later on you can move to an ASC. If you are asking these questions because you don't want to work full ...
  10. Advice-posting here too for CRNA's to chime in

    I agree with the other comments and want to add one more. If you like the ER for the adrenalin rush you get, understand that in anesthesia, if you do it right, you shouldn't have many adrenalin rushes. Anesthesia can be boring, but it beats out any...
  11. Advice!

    I love being a CRNA and know that the best decision I made in my life was entering this profession. Read all of the posts here and on other websites. If you do a google search you will find many websites and discussion groups that are very active r...
  12. Day in the life of a CRNA?

    Administering anesthesia is the most fun someone can have and still get paid for it. My days are short-not many cases or very long--lots of OB and/or emergencies. You have a lot of information in your head and have seconds to figure out a difficult...
  13. CRNA jobs in SoCal

    There are two major anesthesia programs in the LA area, Kaiser and USC. They pretty much meet the supply needs of the area.
  14. Tubing tips

    Do don't have much experience, do you?

    The OP needs to spend a lot of time shadowing CRNAs. I love anesthesia and could not imagine doing anything else. There are going to be lots of positions available in the future, as long as you pick your location (not Florida). Regarding surgeons,...
