I am not looking for a specific response and perhaps everyone will bring something different to the table or perhaps this thread won't gain traction at all.....

What would you tell your former self now being a CRNA or SRNA? What would you tell the former ICU/Critical Nurse that was once you? A word of advice? A tip? Word of encouragement? Anything. Look back, think of where you are, what would you say to that ICU nurse that was once you.

Interest, baby. This better to receive than to pay. Start saving early. Don't be in debt.

Can you elaborate? Do you mean saving for CRNA school COL/tuition to offset the amount of loans? Or paying off your CRNA school debt ASAP upon graduation?
