Contest to Launch During National Nurse Anesthetist Week, Winner to be Announced February 24
In celebration of National Nurse Anesthetists Week, Somnia Anesthesia will once again recognize an outstanding Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist (CRNA) in its third annual CRNA of the Year contest, the company announced. An anesthesia practice management company serving hospitals, ambulatory surgery centers, and office based practices nationwide, Somnia will be accepting nominations of CRNAs from throughout the country beginning January 20 through February 20 at midnight.
CRNAs can be nominated using our online survey by a fellow CRNA, physician, or other healthcare professional. The winner, who will be selected by a panel of senior-level healthcare clinicians and administrators, will be announced on February 24 and will receive an iPad mini.
The previous two winners Holly Robins, CRNA, MS, MBA (2012), and Dorothea Connolly, CRNA (2013) were both very accomplished and well respected within their facilities and amongst their patients. Ms. Robins, manager of nurse anesthesia at Yale-New Haven Hospital, New Haven, CT, shifted focus from herself to the profession at-large. “It is a privilege to be a nurse anesthetist, and I consider myself fortunate to be able to work in such a dynamic profession.”
