Ep 186: Empowered Women Empower Women

None of us get to where we are without the help and guidance of other people. We rely on mentorship from our peers to lift us up and empower us to accomplish great things. With the input from a few powerful women on this episode, we want to highlight women that have played a key role in helping advance the industry and discuss how we can elevate each other through empowerment.

Check out the timestamps below to help you navigate through the many topics we discussed.

On This Episode:

Women have always been at the heart of the nurse anesthesia profession but we wouldn’t be where we are today if it wasn’t for the mentorship and support that’s been passed along through the years.

On this episode of Beyond the Mask, we’ve brought on two powerful women, Jackie Rowles, MBA, CRNA, ANP-BC, FAAN and Tracy Castleman, CRNA, to join Sharon Pearce, DNP, CRNA, FAANA for a discussion about empowering women. No matter how successful we become, you never get there alone and you often do a better job when you have a strong woman alongside you to provide support and mentorship.

As you get started on the episode, keep an ear out for these topics:

  • The reasons behind this topic and what everyone thinks it means to empower women.
  • How to respond if someone doesn’t appreciate who you are and what you bring to the table.
  • How to have tough conversations for people you care about.
  • The AANA has served to bring many women together.
  • Why mentoring is so important for providing support and giving others opportunity.
  • Each woman shares their best piece of advice.

Ep 226: The Need for More State Nurse Legislators

We talk all the time about the lack of nurse representation in policy-making positions, but that doesn’t make the data any less surprising. Today we’ll have a great discussion with Darlene Curley, EdD, RN, FAAN, about a study she recently completed on state nurse legislators. She’ll share some of the details with us in this episode and we’ll also have a wide-ranging discussion on how CRNAs and other nurses can continue increasing their involvement.

Ep 225: An Inside Look at Lobbying for Your State Association

Both of them have been tremendous assets to our association because of their passion for lobbying. We explored that role to find out what skills it takes, how to utilize a lobbyist, and what you should expect from them.

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.
