From Diploma to Doctoral Entry: The Evolution of Nurse Anesthesia Education (Part 1)

On This Episode:

Today we welcome back Nancy Bruton-Maree, CRNA, and Sandy Ouellette, CRNA to take a detailed look at the evolution of education in the nurse anesthetist profession. We’ll cover everything over two episodes and we’ll begin with the challenges faced by nurse anesthetists, the formation of the National Association of Nurse Anesthetists, and the significant contributions of pioneers like Agatha Hodgins, Gertrude Fife, and Helen Lamb.

This episode is a testament to the dedication and perseverance of nurse anesthetists throughout history. It serves as a reminder of the importance of education, advocacy, and unity in advancing the profession and ensuring the highest level of patient care.

 

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

  • What led to the formation of the National Association of Nurse Anesthetists (NANA), now known as the AANA.
  • The legal battles and opposition facing nurse anesthetists in the early 20th century.
  • The shift in educational advancements that have shaped the profession.
  • We’ll look back on some of the key figures in nurse anesthesia history and the role they played.
  • The importance of maintaining high educational standards and the role of accreditation in our profession.

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.
