Examples of ageism can be found in just about any profession but is this something that CRNAs should be concerned about? This episode, with the help of co-host Jackie Rowles, MBA, CRNA, ANP-BC, FAAN and guest Cindy Farina, DNP, CRNA explores how the cultural fixations on youth can not only undermine job satisfaction but can also nudge experienced CRNAs towards premature retirement. We also want to recognize the relevance of late-career CRNAs, their contributions to the nurse anesthesiology profession, and the potential challenges they face.

Former AANA President Jackie Rowles, MBA, CRNA, ANP-BC, FAAN is sitting in for Jeremy today and brings a wealth of experience to the conversation today. Cindy is a practicing CRNA from Detroit and serves as a remote instructor for the Rush University Nurse Anesthesia Program, and she has devoted a lot of her time to exploring the challenges facing CRNAs at every stage of their careers.

Whether you’re a young professional or a seasoned expert, this episode is rich with insights on the value of diversity, respect for experience, and the pursuit of job satisfaction throughout all stages of a CRNA’s career.

 

Here’s some of what we discuss in this episode:

What made Cindy become more aware of ageism in the workplace.

The value of late-career CRNAs and their contributions to the profession.

The factors that drive CRNAs to continue working or make the decision to retire.

The strategies for keeping CRNAs in the workforce.

What can late-career CRNAs do to maintain career satisfaction.

My base of philosophy is we should not be miserable going to work. Yes, it’s hard enough, there’s stress, things we have to manage, but misery does not have to be part of our work lives.

-Cindy Farina, DNP, CRNA

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.
