I am so glad I found this site. I will probably be posting on it for the next two years. I am a RN who has always aspired to be in anesthesia. I have two family members that are crnas. I am working on my BSN now, half way through. I have been an ER rn for three years (in two level III hospitals) and next week will be starting in the CV-ICU at a major university hospital, (YIKES!). I am excited but intimidated at the same time, the first patient I saw while shadowing had a VAD! WOW! . I plan on starting to submit applications to anesthesia programs in the summer of May 2010 to start the following year. I am keeping that hush hush at my new job. So this site will give me some place to talk about it. Hello everyone.
