... just did my first shadow day with some CRNAs at UCLA. I've been reading all about it here on the forums, but to actually experience it first-hand was fun, interesting, and intense. I'm setting myself up for another shadow day with a different CRNA so I can see different perspectives and such, but I really enjoyed my first exposure to anesthesia practice. I still have a year or so to prepare for my applications, but I'm motivated and excited!
