Kris is a practicing CRNA in Nebraska and the efforts in her home state to get people to show up and be involved was recognized during the assembly. We wanted to hear more about the success she’s had so that others can pick up a thing or two and possibly apply it to their own state.

As I was serving on our board and doing other roles, I just kind of gradually started doing more with the political arena and attending more events. And then our FPD, I just watched her and she was amazing, and so I tried to fill her shoes.

I started listening to this podcast religiously early on in my CRNA journey, a year before applying to CRNA school. The content in this podcast was one of my most helpful resources for getting into my first choice school, Wake Forest! It has also been a huge motivator for getting involved with the AANA now and throughout my career. I highly recommend this podcast to every prospective CRNA I meet.
