Alumni Information and Events Overview

Welcome KU Nurse Anesthesia Alums!

alumni snapshots

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: the establishment of a scholarship sponsored by alumni, donations for financial support of student travel to AANA and KANA conferences, 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.

I hope you will visit this site frequently to learn about alumni news and current program events. We sponsor an alumni lunch at the annual spring KU Anesthesiology Symposium, and the attendance has grown each year. We also host a fun tailgate party on the Hill every football season for alumni, students and faculty. Updates to these and other events are posted regularly to this page.

For those of you using social media, please check out the KU Nurse Anesthesia Facebook page. We hope you'll join this interactive forum – it's another way to maintain connections with the University of Kansas and your former classmates.

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