DNP CRNA Nurse Anesthesia at ____ University, Florida

Updated: 7 days ago

I hope to be selected to the DNP Program in Nurse Anesthesia at the University of XXXX (UNF). I graduated from UXX´s Accelerated Nursing Program 2.5 years ago, studying under and coming to very much admire many of the UXX professors. I am especially pleased by the fact that the current director of the School of Nursing has written me a letter of recommendation. I have already completed two of the five classes taken in the first semester of the Nurse Anesthesia Program at UXX; and I am presently taking a third. Originally from Africa and making the USA my permanent home, I am grateful to America and my community in Florida for the many opportunities that have been made available to me. I hope to give back to my society during the many years ahead that I look forward to practicing nursing in Jacksonville, Florida – especially through my attention to the underserved members of my community on a voluntary basis. I also look forward to going on medical missions in support of surgeons, particularly following natural disasters.

In April of 2016, I attended the Diversity CRNA Information Session and Airway Simulation Lab at the University of Tennessee at Chattanooga. Dr. John Bing, the president of Diversity in the Nurse Anesthesia Mentorship program (DNAMP), went into detail about the role of a nurse anesthetist. He gave us comprehensive information about the admission and interview process, rigors of the program, clinical expectations, didactic courses, balancing family and finances, etc. A mock interview took place, which highlighted what programs were looking for in potential candidates. In the simulation lab, I learned and practiced how to intubate a mannequin with a fiber-optic scope and how to insert epidurals and central lines. At the end I was myself hooked.

I spent two unforgettable days shadowing Dr. XXXX (CRNA) at Mayo Clinic in Jacksonville; and six most successful weeks shadowing XXXX (CRNA) at Memorial Hospital in Jacksonville. i adore every aspect: assessment, monitoring, and intervention as necessary to keep our patients as safe and comfortable as possible - always with an eye to maximizing favorable outcomes. I am certified in three different nursing specialties: critical care, emergency nursing, and trauma nursing. As a critical care nurse for the past 2.5 years, I have managed mostly patients with advanced disease processes: hemodynamically unstable patients with multiple comorbidities, septic shock, respiratory distress syndrome, post code patients requiring therapeutic hypothermia, respiratory failure patients requiring ECMO, volatile renal failure patients requiring CRRT, gunshot wounds that require massive blood transfusion, unstable post-op liver transplant patients, and patients recovering from high-risk surgeries leaving them ventilator dependent, sedated, on vasoactive therapy with pulmonary artery catheters, intra-aortic balloon pumps, and impellas. I am most grateful for the honor of simply having sat in class alongside CRNA students for ¨Principles of Anesthesia I¨ with Dr. Cushenbery, Dr. Shores’ lectures on diffusion and osmosis, Advanced Pathophysiology with Dr. Robinson, and Public Policy Implications and Health Informatics with Dr. McCarthy.

Thank you.
