On This Episode:

The Fab Four is back together for a great cause as we shine the light on the Our Hearts Your Hands organization that is supporting nurse anesthesia growth globally. Today we want to share the story of two amazing and incredibly dedicated nurse anesthetists in Uganda who need financial support to earn a degree that will be transformational for them and their community. Learn all about the work Our Hearts Your Hands is doing across Africa and how you can be a part of this mission to raise $10,000 for two deserving nurses.

For those that aren’t familiar with our wonderful guests today, Sharon is joined by Jackie Rowles, DNP, CRNA, NSPM-C, FAANA, FAAN, Tracy Castleman, DNP, CRNA, APN-A, FAANA  & Carole Doyscher, CRNA, BSN, MS, APRN. Jackie helped start this organization in 2016 to help nurse anesthetists in mostly middle lower and lower income countries to get education. They’ve provided 21 grants now in eight African countries and continue working to help educate nurse anesthetists so they can bring services to their communities. It’s a wonderful cause and one we hope you’ll consider supporting.

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

  • The changes we’ve seen this organization help facilitate in these communities.
  • The access to quality care is even more important than access to care at all.
  • The amazing story of two nurse anesthetists who received grants in Uganda to help them continue their education.
  • What are the best ways to support this charity?
  • What this would mean for obstetrical care and women’s health in Africa.

We now know that we can’t just talk about access to care. We’ve got to talk about quality care, which is why what we’re doing is so important and why we need everyone to help us educate people that don’t have the money to go to school. They have the brain power, they just need the access.

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.
