Seriously doubt this will be endorsed by the AANA, but...thoughts?

 

The Nurse Anesthesiologist Movement is officially underway! Help support the movement as we take the next steps to ensuring it comes to fruition. The first step will be to rename the AANA the American Association of Nurse Anesthesiologists! In order to get there though we will need funds for PR, marketing, legal expertise, etc. over the next couple months. All donations will go to supporting the Nurse Anesthesiologist Movement, and 100% of any leftover funding (should there be any) will go to the CRNA PAC!

Wow, Offlabel, you surprise me. I would have never taken you for the type to support this new movement. 

Big changes seem to be on the immediate horizon.

I can see a lot of push back on this since anesthesiologist is a protected title

Anesthesiologist is not a protected title. It was such a vague title that the ASA decided to advocate the title be expanded to physician anesthesiologist to help differentiate themselves from nurse anesthetists/anesthesiologists and AAs. The term being advocated by CRNAs is an official change to Certified Registered Nurse Anesthesiologist versus the current Anesthetist ending. The term nurse anesthesiologist is also now officially recognized by the AANA, so yes CRNA can and do use the term nurse anesthesiologist.

So, Bluebolt...I replied to you, but I guess I didn't hit the 'submit reply' button, as my post isn't here. I'll just take a screen shot just in case it happens again ;)

Anyway, what I said was that I was just posting the link for conversation and that I do not support this campaign. And I pointed out that this short sighted effort isn't considering our customers, the surgeons, when it is advanced with such carelessness. I just pointed out that we risk having the surgeons roll their eyes at us behind our backs as we leave the lounge to start their next case.

That's all....sorry to challenge the narrative.

I understand your perspective, Offlabel. I've heard so many convincing viewpoints on both sides of the debate about this hot topic. I'll leave my personal opinion out of it until after my upcoming graduation.

I bet if BladeMDA from SDN saw this post... oh I'd need to get some popcorn for this one!

Student here, no dog in this fight one way or the other.
