What does the Shadow Know? Recently I had the chance to interview and conduct a day long orientation to a potential candidate to a Nurse Anesthetist Residency Program.  Good candidates are hard to find ala May West.  Some of you may know the reference.

Money Issues

Thu, 25 Oct 2012 02:23:49 +0000

At last I get my wish.  For several years now I have asked my colleague’s to craft a post on what they think is important for candidates to know before they apply to a school of  nurse anesthesia.  It’s been a hard sell.  To be blunt, I have been so busy working and teaching that […]
