Ok this is not something that any of the schools and association want to see an active AA post for the public to see since it only makes the CRNAs happy but it has to be said!
 
The schools are concentrating on putting out higher number of students and students with nothing else on their resume but high GPAs and MCAT/GRE scores instead of putting out graduates that are actually GOOD anesthetists.  Sure i understand that there is a learning curve but when new grads are coming out without being competant in the basics such as laryngoscopy or case management, then it makes the profession as a whole look bad and only makes the CRNA arguement against us stronger.  As a preceptor of many students from the various schools out there i and many others have discussed how it is getting to be rediculous having the young, cocky student that think that because they are book smart that they are going to make good anesthetists just because they can memorize things.
 
Now i've seen CRNA students and residents that are the same way but we are too weak of an organization to allow this.  GROW UP!!  You will be doing a job that you can kill a patient from you over confidence and arrogance.  We don't care if you were a PHD, have your degrees in chemisty or biology or even if you were a doctor in guam...you want to prove yourself here then do the job and do it right! 
 
And as for you program directors...enough of the favoritism with the students, every student needs and deserves the same experience and when someone is falling behind it is YOUR responsibility to get them up to par, even if they have to take extra time!!!
