This week we discussed staffing and career development. It was interesting to see what some of my classmates had planned for their future careers. Some wanted to become NP’s, I myself have a goal of becoming a CRNA. It was nice to have the opportunity to reflect on our goals and make sure we had a plan for our future. For me, I know it is not as clear as I imagine it at the moment, because my wife and I have plans for a family that I know will delay my ideal time frame. But to me, family is just as important to prioritize.
It was also interesting discussing scheduling trying to create a schedule for the scenario that we were given. I think it was a helpful insight to the complex skill of scheduling. Scheduling is definitely not as clear cut as some may think, and it is impossible to satisfy everyone’s scheduling preferences.
