Semester Hours: 2

This course will explore the advanced professional role of the nurse anesthetist through the lens of diversity, safety, wellness, and self-care.  The focus of the course will be on providing foundational materials for specialized areas of advanced nursing practice in anesthesia as related to the AANA Standards of Practice. An overview of the profession of nurse anesthesia including scope and setting of practice, professionalism, professional organizations history, and current issues within the field will be analyzed.  The student will be able to recognize personal and professional risk factors (such as workplace and personal stress as well as recognizing the occupational risk for substance use disorder) and learn self-care concepts to address these in a manner that promotes a balanced and fulfilling personal and professional life for the CRNA. Healthy coping skills and resiliency strategies will be introduced as methods to reduce stress and maintain a healthy work-life balance. The goal of the course is to address resiliency while increasing cultural sensitivity and knowledge of culturally diverse populations to promote optimal health outcomes across the life span.
