Just kidding. You’re a tool if you celebrate this week.

We didn’t give ourselves anything. Those clueless leaders at the ASA forced upon us yet another ridiculous thing we don’t need.

That said, you bet I’ll be sending out emails to nurse/hospital administrators reminding them to recognize our week in similar fashion as they did other nurse weeks. I want my damn gift bag and Yeti cooler.

Are there internal med or surgeon physician weeks? I thought they lumped all physicians in to a single day usually accompanied with a free prison food level lunch from the hospital in a reusable bag that breaks on the way back to your work room...

lol yea i meant the ASA who supposedly represent us all. They've already played into the CRNA propaganda with their redundant Physician Anesthesiologist bs.

Only thing worse than having a "week" is the stupidass redundant "Physician" part of the title of the week

Which is the way it should be for anesthesiologists.

Creating your own week reeks of the inferiority complex and desperation that the anesthesia nurses exhibit.

CRNA here.

What’s the best way to thank the docs I work with and wish them a happy PA week? The CRNAs have a good working relationship with all of them and mutual respect.

Not at all like the toxic relationships I read about on this board.

Definitely call it PA week.

I literally had an online disagreement with a young doc on not calling himself a provider. He insisted he wanted to be inclusive and if I thought I was inherently better then I was the problem.
This is where we are heading.

What a dork. Do I feel that I am better then that other anesthesia "provider", CRNAs? Absolutely not. I know I am.

The bottom of their CRNA week poster already says American Association of Nurse Anesthesiology.

They're already there.
It’s disgusting. Anytime someone asks me about nurse anesthesiologists versus physician anesthesiologists I say, “ anesthesiologists are physicians”. And if they don’t get it I ignore their damn questions.

I would ignore their regular questions as well.
