Diversity in Nurse Anesthesia Mentorship Program

The Edge Runner initiative recognizes nurses-designed models of care and interventions that impact cost, improve healthcare quality and enhance consumer satisfaction.  Through its Edge Runner program, the Academy is mobilizing its fellows, health leaders, and partner organizations to recognize nurses who are leading the way with new ideas to transform the health system.

The Immersion Model for Diversifying Nurse Anesthesia Programs is innovative by design and has emerged as a reliable method to challenge bias, close demographic gaps in representation, and increase the racial and ethnic diversity of the nurse anesthesia profession.

For over a decade, the Diversity in Nurse Anesthesia Mentorship Program has mentored 658 nurses of color who matriculated into and graduated from 92 graduate nurse anesthesia programs.  Click here to read more about the Immersion Model for Diversifying Nurse Anesthesia Programs.
