    At first I thought, you’ve got to be kidding! She talks way too much! I did make myself listen just to give an appropriate comment.
    I’ve been a nurse for 39 years and I did enjoy listening and thinking about the IV fluids. I don’t think you should talk so much about going to CRNA school. I can understand that you are excited though..
    Was hoping I could recommend your podcast to students where I am a clinical instructor, but I think it is too lengthy. Good luck in your new adventure in CRNA school.
