    Losing my religion

    You were quoting someone talking about Buddhism and then took a crack at Jesus. Why not any other religious figures there? Amazing that even nonbelievers find power in the name Jesus, even if it is to insult or offend.

    Your point is taken but to say Jesus-fy can be offensive to believers.

    I'm sorry but after reading this I have to ask exactly how do they measure these outcomes? If I pray openly for 100 terminal cancer PTs and they all pass away, does that prove that pray made them worse? I have seen articles written before that showed improvement in vital signs with someone praying at the bedside but I'm not sure if it was an actual research article so I won't proclaim it as truth.

    Link to the research article please. I prayed during my boards and surprisingly I relaxed and calmed down.

    What are people's thoughts about someone who wears a cross necklace or a rosary at work?

    What was rude and why was it inappropriate?

    Funny thing is that I live in the south as well and I do not seem be in the same Deep South as you are. It seems more acceptable here to pray and if someone told the surgeon they would rather not then he wouldn't. Not all prayers are said out loud. I can pray all day long for you and you not know. Don't assume someone who prays for their pt is forcing them to hear something they don't want to. I went to a football game in Alabama over the weekend (probably not the Deep South either) and they prayed before the game for the safety o the players. How dare they pray for the safety o the players. Someone should march on them. Sadly they probably won't be able to do this in the next couple of years. The prayer was student led because religious leaders are not allowed to perform this act anymore.

    I didn't say your care was substandard. I have never had someone refuse to treat a pt based on religious beliefs. Some religious beliefs confuse me like: Jehovah witnesses can't take blood transfusions but organs are ok. But I have never refused to take care of them. If someone does then they should be fired and replaced. Same thing for prisoners. I don't know what they did nor do I want to know what they did. Politics is the same thing. I had a pt press me about Obama and didn't like that I didn't believe he was the greatest person who ever lived.

    Don't know why I thought something said there was an article. Apologies for that sentence.

    This whole post stinks of an argument against religion. Baiting people to argue with the OP. There was no article to read, just a personal opinion piece. Trolling is another word that comes to mind. Should you preach to your PTs? No I do not believe so. Can you pray for your PTs? Yes. Do you have to pray for them at home? No. Not all prayers are spoken out loud. I pray for PTs everyday. Pray that they make it through surgery and that I do no harm. Surgeons I work with ask their PTs if they can pray with them before surgery and all of them have said yes when I have worked with him.

    Advice on what path to take!!!

    Big con for you is that there is a good chance you will not be able to attend school in Florida or even work there immediately after graduation. My understanding has been that you should be prepared to go where you need to go to become a CRNA. This means applying to multiple schools around the country. I am not saying it is impossible but it is unlikely to stay all in one area and accomplish school and your first job.

    Help: Tattoo Ideas!!

    It would make sense that a tattoo would not matter if you can't see it. If you can see a huge tattoo on someone at the interview then it can be off-putting. My hospital makes you cover them and if they can't be covered then you will have a problem getting hired. They also have a policy against visible piercings other than one set in the earlobes. It is a professional image not whether the person is a professional. I'm also a military member and I can tell you that no one I know has ever asked for permission to get a tattoo but would get in trouble only if it was visible in uniform or in bad taste. I think your comparison to race is ridiculous. To treat tattoos on the same level as race is a ridiculous comparison.

    Rejection Letters

    Yes as far as I have heard.
  15. I believe they mean last 60 hours. It would be cumulative. The only thing I have heard people say that they separate is the science from nursing. You may want to retake some courses to be more competitive.
