We pose the question to guests all the time about how to get more CRNAs involved on the advocacy side of the profession, but today’s guest is taking a hands-on approach to instilling that mindset at the educational level. Dr. Kristie Hoch has taken her passion for advocacy and applied it to the nurse anesthesiology program at the University of Arizona. Together with co-host Tracy Castleman, DNP, CRNA, APN-A, FAANA, we will hear all about her training process and why she thinks this leadership training will pay off in all aspects of their careers.
For those that don’t know Kristie Hoch, DNP, CRNA, MS, RRT, she iss the program administrator for the University of Arizona’s DNP-Nurse Anesthesiology program. We had her on a few years ago to talk about anesthesia school, and we’re excited to have her back to learn more about another aspect of that training.
Kristie points to her experience in nurse anesthesia school that ignited her fire to get involved and credits some incredible mentors for helping her begin that journey. Now she’s brought everything full circle by becoming a mentor to her students and helping ignite their fire for advocacy.
Here’s some of what we discuss in this episode:
- Why she thinks we should call our students residents.
- Where her passion and fire for getting involved began.
- When she starts incorporating leadership and advocacy into her students’ training?
- CRNAs are already leaders by making it through school and being a part of this profession.
- The different ways they integrate this training.

I honestly believe that at some point, one of my residents will be president of the AANA. That’s how much I push them to do this stuff.
