So I kicked it off with a big C on my first test. I'm keeping the baby during the day and trying to study while mama is at work. In the spring it'll be better since I'll be working. Got a job at a local ICU as an extern and hoping they'll keep me on once I graduate (fingers crossed).
So I get to clinicals the other day and my coach doesn't show. The other charge says, "oh, she's sick today." Great, I thought!!! What do I do now? So I called up the anesthesiologist that I knew there and asked
Just glad to have the first test over with. It was A&P - chemistry, biochem, cell membrane structure and function, enzyme kinetics, organelles, and genetics.
Didn't get to study as much as I should have (had so much going on that weekend with my son's homecoming activities, not to mention my natural tendency toward procrastination!). Woke up Sunday morning (test was Monday) panicking that I had not yet even looked over my notes. Spent ALL DAY Sunday up to nearly midnight studying.
I just figured out that I want to be a CRNA. I'm 16 years old, and im already obsessed with the field. I have my plan ready. But I am still a little confused, can anyone give me the steps, and all the exams i have to take to become a CRNA please, it would really help. I know you guys might think that im too young, but this is my passion. I hope i can get some great advice and meet new people. Also i want to track my progress and will i be able to be a CRNA 10 years from now.
So much to learn and get used to when you are a brand new CRNA both clinically and just functionally in a new job... it is unreal.
The things that come to mind immediately.
- Where the F* is everything?
- Who can i trust to help?
- What is the 'system' of things here?
- How do i do that paperwork again?
- What surgeons are good/bad etc
So much to try and get up to speed on that isnt even vaguely clinical yet very important.
So its Friday. I've got one really busy weekend in front of me. Night out with friends tonight. Soccer tourney for my son tomorrow plus a Truck show in the afternoon. The class ahead of me is hosting an informal get together for us newbies Sun brings a noon picnic for the "official" meet and greet for the new students to meet the faculty.
(side note: the invite said "in the past we have had 100 percent attendance by incoming students. I look forward to continuing this tradition."...I
