My journey from RN to CRNA

This is a running log of my experience in the process.

  1. Looking back over the last couple years

    Wow, what changes we have seen...

    Jobs tightening up, the website exploding with new members, schools putting out too many students and even more attacks by out detractors with a background of major wins for our profession... and ive been working

    We have seen an iphone app come to fruition as well as a major and minor website upgrade.

  2. Logical fallacies

    One of the most interesting things to me is debate (go figure). So I have spent alot of time learning about debate techniques and how to try and win!

    There are many different debate failures and I thought I would post some of em here, i know I make them often and im sure many others do!

  5. Thinking about a Doctorate...

    I want to do something that will have some beneficial impact both clinically and for my professional future.. so I decided to break them all down here from my own perspective..

    PhD. Well, this is truly a pure research doctorate. It will likely cost more and take longer ...
