Student Wellness

Welcome to the Student Wellness page of the AANA website. My name is Adrienne Chavez and I am an SRNA at the University of Maryland. I am excited to be the student representative for the AANA’s Health and Wellness Committee for the fiscal year 2020. A little about myself: I love being outdoors, traveling, eating, and exercising. Although this program can be overwhelming at times, I believe our health should always remain a top priority.

It’s easy to place our health on the back burner when we have clinical, exams, and research papers to complete, but I challenge you to perform at least one act of self-care a week. Self-care can include activities like exercising, meditating, eating healthier meals, or pulling away from the books for a couple of hours and spending quality time with family. If you’re feeling overwhelmed, please take a look at the numerous resources AANA has listed on www.AANA.com/stress.

Substance use disorder (SUD) can affect anyone. If you or someone you know needs information regarding SUD, please use the AANA Peer Assistance hotline at 800-654-5167. This hotline provides 24/7 confidential live support to all CRNAs and SRNAs concerning SUD. Help is also available at www.AANA.com/gettinghelp.

If you have tips, tricks, or suggestions that you’d like to share, or need additional resources or ideas, please contact us at wellness@AANA.com. I wish you all good health and much success this year!
