Daneilio Absalom


Accepted into Excela School of Anesthesia/Saint Vincent College

“Four years ago, I left a progressive career in the Hotel Industry to become a CRNA. I attended nursing school at Johns Hopkins and worked in various ICUs. I set goals and pursue them relentlessly. 

Day in and day out, I worked religiously and did whatever I needed to ensure I was the ideal candidate for CRNA school. I had the fantastic opportunity to attend the Diversity CRNA Mentorship Conference at VCU last fall, and that experience reinforced my desire to become a CRNA. 

Today, I can proudly attest that I am a product of outstanding mentorship and guidance. There’s a saying, “It takes a village to raise a child,” so it’s fair to say that the Diversity CRNA Mentorship Program is our village with countless mentors helping and guiding minorities like me to realize and attain our dreams of becoming a CRNA.”
