February 2020 – Happy CRNA Week
Celebrating CRNA Week!!!
This is Dr. Tedrick Vernon DNP CRNA (Graduate, Duke University Nurse Anesthesia Program) in the operating room at the head of the bed prepared to deliver anesthesia.
Celebrating #CRNAWeek to a friend and colleague whom I had the pleasure of witnessing her professional and educational growth
It’s #CRNAWeek Mentoring Moment with Dr. Gregory Guerrier, DNP, CRNA (Graduate, University of Southern Mississippi DNP Nurse Anesthesia Program)
As per Dr. Guerrier:
This year will be my first CRNA week I can officially celebrate as a CRNA! For Mentor Monday I want to give a special shoutout to my mentor @jwii__ . I met Captain James Winters II, DNP, CRNA at a Diversity CRNA conference in April 2016. Little did I know, January 2017 Captain Winters would be my roommate for my first year of CRNA school. Even though he was busy studying for boards and preparing to defend his DNP project, he spent that year mentoring me, quizzing me, and guiding me to ensure I was ready to enter the clinical world.
So I just want to say thank you to Dr. Lena Gould, EdD, CRNA, FAAN @lenagould for creating Diversity CRNA and for connecting me with Captain Winters. I attribute a lot of my success to them.
