Dr. Heidi Krowchuk (Family and Community Nursing) received new funding from the DHHS Health Resources and Services Administration for the Nurse Anesthesia Traineeship Program. The purpose of this project is to improve access to a diverse workforce of Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists (CRNAs) who can provide expert culturally sensitive anesthesia care to the medically underserved. Qualified baccalaureate prepared registered nurses will be able to matriculate into the three-year Doctor of Nursing Practice(DNP) program of full-time study offered by UNCG and the Raleigh School of Nurse Anesthesia (RSNA). The proposed project will be accomplished by providing traineeships for 104 DNP nurse anesthesia students of the UNCG/RSNA for the 2017-2018 academic year, who will have clinical experiences delivering anesthesia services to diverse groups of medically underserved individuals in more than three urban and 10 rural clinical settings within North Carolina.
