We need to RISE ABOVE.


Research to validate and strengthen the nurse anesthesia profession is a requirement. The AANA Foundation is embarking on the Campaign to RISE Above to fund additional research studies to advance the profession and patient safety. The campaign aims to surpass $1 million in funding for Health Services Research.  This research will inform healthcare policy affecting patient care processes and patient/provider interactions. Ultimately, the research will educate the spectrum of health care stakeholders about the value and quality that CRNAs bring to their patients.

Without this research, proving the value of CRNAs is difficult. We welcome you to join us as we RISE Above to further advance and protect your practice and your future.

Continuing education and research is vital to enhance our career and ensure quality and safety. Volunteering time and money is a requirement because we all must take ownership to advance our profession.
— Monica Jones, Steering Committee Co-Chair
