Asian Americans Encouraged to Be Nurse Anesthetists

Nguoi Viet, Posted: Jun 09, 2008

PARK RIDGE, Ill. The American Association of Nurse Anesthetists (AANA) is encouraging Asian Americans to consider nurse anesthesia as a career option. ''As the minority population continues to grow, a more culturally diverse nurse anesthesia work force would more accurately reflect the population that we serve, while exposing current healthcare providers, and other individuals to a career with a high degree of responsibility, autonomy, and personal satisfaction,'' said AANA President Wanda O. Wilson. Of the 2.9 million registered nurses in the US, 3.7 percent of the nursing workforce is Asian American nurses and about 2.6 percent in the nurse anesthesia workforce.
