National CRNA Week is AANA’s annual celebration of anesthesia patient safety and the nation’s 50,000+ CRNAs and student registered nurse anesthetists who safely and cost-effectively provide approximately 43 million anesthetics each year. Known as National Nurse Anesthetists Week as recently as 2014, the new name for this popular event helps patients, hospital administrators, healthcare professionals, policymakers, and others become more familiar with the CRNA credential and the exceptional advanced practice registered nurses who have earned it.
Here in Vermont we are continuing our traditional “Day at the Statehouse” in Montpelier on Tuesday, January 24th. It is our chance to meet and greet the new legislature and spread the word about the great work CRNAs do in Vermont. We would love to have members from around the state join us in Montpelier, and if you can do so, let me know at firstname.lastname@example.org. Also please contact your local senator/representative and let them know the VTANA will be in the card room on the 24th and to stop by and say hello. You can find contact information for your legislator here.
Thank you for your help, and look forward to seeing you on the 24th!
