I think some are confused at this point. I think some of you truly think I'm a recruiter for BlocHealth or National Anesthesia or some other company. Some think that I'm some fancy dude that is just rolling in bank. I hate to tell you that this is just so far from the truth.
I'm a CRNA. I've been a CRNA since December, 2009. I have made my way through the locums world since 2011 and have been relatively happy. I share my experiences and what I've learned along the way. Yes, I've learned the hard way because honestly half the most out-spoken people just don't know everything and if they say they do... ask yourself if you know everything after being a XYZ of 10-20-30 years.... I'm betting the answer is no. I prefer to state that I'm no lawyer or accountant but this is my experience, as it's the truth. I'm not a financial expert or licensed as such so to give counsel... I can't do that. I can tell you the things I have done or the people I have talked to.
I can tell you what has and hasn't worked for me. That's what this site is about, educating you so you don't make the same mistakes I have or collectively understanding where we are and where we go from here. Giving you options and helping you to be able to figure out decent people to work with. I can't tell you they are all perfect because part of the information is gathered from our peers to make this a more wholistic site. I'm trying to give you all the information and not just one perspective.
So, I'm not a recruiter because I don't call hospitals and get contracts for work. I don't place CRNAs with hospitals or groups. I ask people to say that I referred them to all the agencies (when this site is instrumental in doing so) when they are going to go the agency route as the referral helps me make this site stronger for you and helps support the number of hours put into this resource.
How many have looked at the other links at the bottom of the main page? Anyone see the Store, Financial information that has Accountants and Financial advisers, Mortgage information, and maybe even the Where we go page that has the article by one of our own on RV'ing it across the country? Take a moment to see all there is to offer. Jobs come and go from the job board too.
Any time I discuss with someone I try to make sure I ask.. How can I make this better? What would help you more? So, I'll leave you with my E-mail LocumCRNAs@gmail.com
I did get a request from an undergrad resource wanting to place links to anesthesia schools and feel that first one has to be done with school and should get their practice down before considering locums... so unfortunately, I declined that request. I'm trying to keep this a clean but solid resource. so... How can I help?
