This collection of true narratives reflects the dynamism and diversity of nurses, who provide the first vital line of patient care. Here, nurses remember their first “sticks,” first births, and first deaths, and reflect on what gets them though long, demanding shifts, and keeps them in the profession. The stories reveal many voices from nurses at different stages of their careers: One nurse-in-training longs to be trusted with more “important” procedures, while another questions her ability to care for nursing home residents. An efficient young emergency room nurse finds his life and career irrevocably changed by a car accident. A nurse practitioner wonders whether she has violated professional boundaries in her care for a homeless man with AIDS, and a home care case manager is the sole attendee at a funeral for one of her patients. What connects these stories is the passion and strength of the writers, who struggle against burnout and bureaucracy to serve their patients with skill, empathy, and strength.

If you've made it into CRNA school or are considering applying, you probably know how difficult it will be getting from orientation day to graduation day. As a successful graduate of nurse anesthesia school, I will provide some insight into what it takes to go from a student to a CRNA. Some of these things I learned while I was in school, while others I picked up on after I started working as a nurse anesthetist. It was not an easy road for me, and it won't be for you either. But I hope you can learn from my mistakes and perhaps some of the bumps along the way will be a little smaller. The aim of this book is not to teach you anesthesia itself. Rather, it is to teach you how to survive while learning the art of anesthesia.
