Park Ridge, Illinois – James S. Furstein, CRNA, DNAP, MSN, a Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist (CRNA), received the 30th Annual Alice Magaw Outstanding Clinical Anesthesia Practitioner Award during the American Association of Nurse Anesthetists (AANA) Nurse Anesthesia Annual Congress, August 29-September 1, 2015 in Salt Lake City, Utah.
 
The Alice Magaw Outstanding Clinical Anesthesia Practitioner Award was established in 1986 to recognize the accomplishments of CRNAs who are involved in direct patient care. The recipient of the award receives recognition by peers as a person who has made an important contribution to the advancement of nurse anesthesia practice.
 
A CRNA, educator, researcher, author, presenter, and respected clinician, Furstein sets high standards for himself and his students by example. “At Cincinnati Children’s Hospital Medical Center, Jamie is irreplaceable,” says colleague Judy Audas, CRNA, DNAP, MSN. “He is a remarkable clinician who has mastered both the art and the science of pediatric anesthesia.”
 
An expert on ultrasound-guided regional anesthesia, Furstein developed the University of Cincinnati Nurse Anesthesia Program’s curriculum on this technique and teaches it to the program’s student registered nurse anesthetists. He is also involved in six active research projects in various stages of development.
 
“I never envisioned being named the recipient of such a prestigious award at this point in my career,” says Furstein. “I am deeply grateful to all who nominated me and to those who selected me for this award.”
 
The AANA congratulates James Furstein, CRNA, DNAP, MSN, on being the 2015 Alice Magaw Award winner for Outstanding Clinical Anesthesia Practitioner.
