2019 Highlights


What your peers say

  • Knowledge is power, and this conference empowered me to know the importance of CRNAs' presence at the Hill to advocate for our profession in the political arena.
  • As a student, it was an amazing opportunity! I felt very welcomed, embraced, encouraged, and empowered by every CRNA I interacted with. It made me excited for the great things to come in my career.
  • You can't truly understand the importance of advocacy unless you are physically there, seeing it in action. CRNAs need to be there!
