On the blogs: healthcare haiku, CRNA salaries

On WBUR's CommonHealth, Nancy Turnbull of the Harvard School of Public Health tries her hand at haiku to muse about the state's new healthcare law.

Here's how she starts:

Health reform is hard.
Such a broken system.
We canít fix it all.

So far one response is also in verse. It might be a haiku, too, but it's been a long time since White Coat Notes was in poetry class.

Kevin, M.D.'s link to a Student Doctor Network item about certified registered nurse anesthetists sparked a bit of a spat about training requirements for registered nurses. The SDN post said CRNAs make 224 percent as much as RNs and 156 percent as much as advance practice nurses.
