Welcome KU Nurse Anesthesia Alums!

Alumni, current students, and our faculty are working hard to foster increased involvement in the KU Nurse Anesthesia program. There are several goals that we would like to achieve: increased support for the establishment of a scholarship sponsored by alumni, donations for financial support of student travel to AANA and KANA conferences, mission trips and increased participation of alumni at our events. Please support our efforts by giving back to the program, and assist our current and future SRNAs with your time and monetary gifts.

Please keep in touch with us and send any professional accomplishments to the department so we may share them with others!
