Position Statement:
I have been a member of the AANA for 20 years and have always worked hard to earn the trust and respect of our membership. I have helped advance the practice of nurse anesthesia by serving on various state and AANA committees, as Region 1 director, and as AANA vice president. I firmly believe this experience makes me an excellent candidate to rerun as vice president, so I can continue to lead and address ongoing issues at the national level. Nurse anesthetists have always delivered safe, quality anesthesia care; however, changes in the healthcare system will continue to impact our practice. In order for us to succeed, we need to educate the general public, healthcare administrators and insurance companies of our value to the healthcare team. We also need to interface with elected officials at the state and national levels in an effort to pass legislation favorable to alternative anesthesia team care models, which will help ease the impending healthcare crisis. I have served on the AANA CE Committee for two years. Once the AANA CPC Task Force completed its assessment of the CPC Program, the committee made progress evaluating the evidence and establishing eligibility criteria for recertification and communication with NBCRNA. As a committee member, I played a key role in communicating members' apprehensions and concerns with the AANA Board. I was also appointed from the AANA Board as the first AANA liaison to the NBCRNA board, which helped foster and facilitate communication between the two boards. My stance at this submission is that we need to continue to work together, maintain our relationship with NBCRNA, and not seek alternative re certification entities. With the input of our members, stakeholders and the AANA Board of Directors, I have seen the changes from the initial roll out of the CPC Program. Just recently, the modules for the first CPC cycle have been made voluntary, while the AANA continues to evaluate both the modules and the exam for efficacy. As your vice president, I will continue to plan and explore strategies to increase membership involvement. Both the AANA and COA have instituted changes to educational practice in response to members' concerns. This demonstrates the importance of working in unison to make us a stronger association. To overcome membership apathy and improve overall state board governance, the AANA instituted an organizational assessment in three states. At that time as an executive Board member, I saw the initial success of these assessments. I then worked hard with the Board collaborating to procure the necessary funding to make these assessments available to all state associations. I am happy to report that we have seen an increase in leadership communication and overall healthier governance as a result of this initiative. Many CRNAs, myself included, would like to see us achieve independent practice in every state. I have practiced in a hospital and a surgeon's office where anesthesia was administered solely by a CRNA. I believe CRNAs can succeed in these settings and that we need to encourage autonomous practice. I also contend we need to find common ground so all nurse anesthetists can deliver quality anesthesia care safely, whether we work independently or not. Most importantly, we need all CRNAs to support each other's individual practice goals. As your vice president, I will continue to make every effort to gain access to all areas of anesthesia within our scope of practice. I strongly believe we can achieve our collective goals of maintaining quality, safe anesthesia care. I am seeking this office because I feel I have the requisite background and leadership skills. I assure you, once elected, I will work to advance our practice and to ensure its continued success. Therefore, I am asking for your support in my bid to become your next vice president.
