Okay ya'll for two seconds I need a break from Irma talk so let's talk about prep for... CRNA school. IT'S NEVER TOO EARLY. START NOW. DON'T WAIT.

Specifically the question I get asked a lot is about shadowing. Overall I did about 110 hours. Now do you need this many? I now know the answer is no... But did it hurt me? Not a bit. •

In my first semester of nursing school I met the chief of anesthesiology for a local hospital (Dr. Zimmet absolutely coolest guy ever!) I was told by my instructor no one would ever allow a nursing student in the OR! Well being told "no" never killed anyone so when I met him I asked and he said he would be honored to have me in his ORs to observe... score! Btw I met him by volunteering to give HS students their physicals so get off your ass because you do actually have to put yourself out there and network or this will not happen. I did 100 hours over 2 summers while in school still. I then did an additional 10 hours with a CRNA at the hospital where I work... again an opportunity through networking that proved a to be a very important 10 hours! More on that another day --> maybe tomorrow!? #dnp #crna #srna #doctorate #anesthesia #nurseanesthetist #shadowing #operatingroom #sleepytime #workforit #networking #itsnevertooearly #startnow #dontbeafraid #dreambig #dreamsdocometrue

Sand on sand on sand... 35 bags total!  Not much studying today going on today. I'm going to try and get some in this afternoon. I'm super bummed about not getting to the gym today but on the other hand I did make 35 bags of sand (with the help of @smk8987 ) so that's counts for something right? I told my husband "while I'm at work I need you to protect my books and laptop" 😂🤓🙅🏼📖💻 #sandbags #myhandshurt #workingthehurricane #teamA #dnp #crna #srna #nurseanesthetist #anesthesia #doctorate #hurricaneirma #study #hardtofocus #eyeontheprize #floridalife

When you actually spend your entire night working on a group project concept map for acute myocardial infarction to prep for the hurricane 😑 💔😩💨🌊💦🌫#hurricaneprep #hurricaneirma #dnp #crna #srna #nurseanesthesia #anesthesia #doctorate #cancelschoolplease #pushbackduedates #concetmap #myocardialinfarction #heartattack #brokenheart
Trying to continue studying trough the chaos of hurricane preparations is nearly impossible. I have to keep reminding myself this will pass soon enough and we will deal with the consequences but I can't let it let me lose my focus. Every day is a day closer to graduation (though so far away my countdown app won't even let me put it in) but I don't want to do anything to set that back. Many group projects coming up I will try to do my parts the next 2 days. We are being called in to work Sunday at 6am and need to be prepared to stay until an all clear is given. #dnp #crna #srna #anesthesia #nurseanesthetist #doctorate #hurricaneirma #focus #dontlosefocus #thistooshallpass

Treadmill views as I walk and read - this way of studying definitely works for me! When I am at home I can't help but just want to take a nap... ironic for someone who didn't take ONE nap as a kid (sorry mom!) 🤷🏼‍♀️

I had the idea of pursuing a career in anesthesia since I was 16 I just didn't know what path life would take me on to get there. I was in my final year of a Bachelors in Biology from the University of  Florida (Go Gators! 🐊) when I decided nursing was what I wanted to do... better late than never right? I finished my degree at UF and went to a community college to get my ADN. I chose that route vs. an accelerated BSN program because well let's be honest I didn't want to write an essay. Also because of a new relationship (which turned in to my husband so that worked out 👸💍), even tougher acceptance rates, having to pay rent vs. I was living somewhere rent free, and a cheaper tuition. While I was a student I networked, met the chief of anesthesiology at a local hospital, and shadowed for 100 hours over 2 summers. I graduated with honors and had an ICU job before I even graduated. I got my BSN online and applied to CRNA school. At the time of acceptance in to CRNA school I had been a critical care nurse for 2 years at a trauma hospital. #crna #srna #anesthesia #treadmill #study #adn #bsn #lifedecisions #everythinghappensforareason #icu #nurse #doctorate #dnp

Why be moody when you can shake your booty!? I took Friday night and Saturday off from studying. Back to the grind Sunday afternoon and today... my head is spinning with genetics and infections 😭

Tomorrow we will talk about some of the preparation I did to get in to CRNA school 💁🏼👌🏼 #mondayfeels #shakeyourbooty #moody #dnp #srna #crna

Some days you will ask yourself "what have I gotten myself in to?" My pathophysiology book just got delivered... the FedEx guy needed a separate truck just for it 😂😭 #patho #pathophysiology #whyisitsobig #dnp #crna #srna #studytime #samesizeas3otherbooks #wherestheforklift
Alright you guys, we need to talk about this right here because there is a lot going on.... First of all I NEED to study... who remembers patho from like 5 years ago? Not this girl! I got this book to help me simplify things and remind myself of the basics 📓✏️ Second, I WANT to be healthy but the piece of cake I had this weekend was not part of the game plan. (Okay, fine I had 4 pieces of cake. If you are judging me you can leave now ✌🏼)...I had to try one of each flavor then have my favorite twice 🤷🏼‍♀️🍰🍰🍰🍰 Third, I LIKE to eat... a lot. Some compare my appetite to that of a teenage boy. 
Lastly, I started falling asleep within 15minutes of reading at home which is slightly counterproductive to studying 😴

When you put those things together you end up where I am today... walking on the treadmill while studying. There are no days off as a CRNA student. I try to maximize my studying during the week because if possible I'd like to enjoy my weekends with family and friends. Also, I am still working one day per week and those days are pretty much useless for school.

I've been asked by SO MANY people about my road to CRNA school, application process, and life as a CRNA student. The best way to answer those questions is to take you along on the journey with me! Since today was day 1 of classes I figured I might as well start today... I've created this instagram account dedicated to life in the day of a SRNA! Side note: I started classes early which is why it says Spring 2018 but I am starting now #SRNA #CRNA #nolife #dnp #threeandahalfyears #doctorate #anesthesia #co2020 #firstdayofschool #firstsemester
