Diversity Now T-Shirt Contest.png

Now more than ever is the time to stand for diversity in the field of nurse anesthesia.  We need more diverse CRNAs, more diverse nurse anesthesia faculty,  program directors, and more diverse clinical preceptors.

It is a measured fact that diversity positively affects student and patient outcomes. While we have moved the needle some, the current state of affairs has shown us that so much more needs to be done now, not later. This is the mission of the Diversity in Nurse Anesthesia Mentorship Program.

“A picture can say a thousand words.”
 If you stand with us, please purchase one of our t-shirts from now through the end of August and send us a picture wearing the shirt to diversitycrna4u@gmail.com. Your photo submission will be entered into our Diversity Now, Not Later Contest.

In September, DNAMP will select 10 winners to be showcased in the October Issue of the Diversity CRNA Member’s Only Newsletter. Winners will receive a one-year complimentary membership and free registration to an online Diversity CRNA Zoom Event of their choice.* To purchase one of our fundraising t-shirts, please click here.
