On This Episode:

Randy Moore, DNP, MBA, CRNA, left his role as the AANA CEO about a year ago to take over as Chief Anesthetist Officer at NorthStar Anesthesia. It was a little surprising because it seemed like a great long-term position, but the reasons for his departure make sense when you hear him explain his vision moving forward.

Now at NorthStar, Randy has the goal of giving CRNAs the best possible employment in every market they serve and he brings the leadership experience and the passion to get that done. That’s why we’ve invited our friend and colleague onto the show to catch up on this huge career change. On this episode, he’ll talk about the transition into this new role as CAO, his goals for CRNAs in the workforce, and the biggest challenges he faced at the AANA.

Here are some of the things you’ll learn on this show:

  • What attracted him to this new position at NorthStar. (3:06)
  • What pushed him to move from the OR to a leadership career track. (9:10)
  • The characteristics that high-performing executives possess. (12:51)
  • Some of the reasons behind the decision to leave the AANA. (17:19)
  • How he would structure the AANA CEO position to allow for more balance between work and time spent with the board. (25:18)

“We just have to pay attention that normalization of deviance is going to occur. Don’t make the shortcuts. Don’t put the pressure on other people because we are going to get it….Sometimes you have to take that step back and take a breath.”

-Randy Cornelius, DNP, ARNP, 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.
