The good, the bad, and the ugly.

  1. I am curious as to any horror stories of being a CRNA? I am considering going back to school for this but I would like to know the good and the bad. Is there anyone that is currently a CRNA that is not happy? And if you are happy what do you enjoy about it?

    The OR is a horrible work environment: cold, no natural light, toxins include methacrylate, anesthetic gases, XRay, CT scans, Fluoroscopy, and toxic people including surgeons, anesthesiologists, and malcontents (not me?)

    Class2011- LOL - I ditto that!
    But the good... when you bond with your fellow nurses and Doctors, it becomes your second family. (At least where I worked as a staff RN).
