NNAW 2013: AANA Staff Learns About CRNAs

To celebrate the 14th annual National Nurse Anesthetists Week, a panel of CRNAs entertained and educated more than 75 AANA staff members during a lunch and learn meeting on January 18, 2013. The CRNAs, who are members of the AANA staff in Park Ridge, Ill., and Washington, D.C., recalled what motivated them to become nurse anesthetists and shared inspirational stories from their diverse careers.
