How recent does my ICU experience need to be
Good question. Could you send me an email with this question - I will ask our education consultants.
Can you list a few pros and cons of your jobs? Also how many hours per week do you usual work?
Yes and be honest 😆
Is it possible to work more part time when you are starting a family?
I have come across a number of part time CRNAs - there is such a shortage that the hospitals are mostly willing to hire part time employees.
How did you prepare for starting CRNA school after being out of didactic course work since undergraduate?
Besides intubation and managing sedation, what are your other responsibilities? Is it typical for you to have to insert central lines?
I’m just posting the PPT again in case anyone came in late.
Do you ever miss working in the ICU?
What made you decide to go the CRNA route vs. becoming a critical care NP?
How many patients do you manage on a typical shift?
If we have worked OR for 5 years, do we still need to shadow a CRNA?
Other than a lack of experience with adult disease processes and pharmacology, what are the challenges that a nurse with picu/nicu experience might face in school? Will we be considered for the program and will we be able to survive without adult experience?
Thank you Angela and Andrew for sharing your experiences. A question related to admission—Will you give any admission preference to prior NMSU School of Nursing graduates ? In terms of the program, will there be any clinical experience within specific subspecialities (ie cardiac, ob, trauma)
I'm not sure if this was already asked, unfortunately I got out of work and just joined. I know most school take only ICU experience. Is this the case for this school? or does cath lab count towards the required experience. If it is only ICU experience that is counted for the requirement for NMSU CRNA school how many years is the requirement.
Do you typically have backup support in the OR for difficult airways?
How would you classify a “large hospital”? For example: Las Cruces ICU’s Vs El Paso ICU’s
