      Hey guys,
      My name is Jonathan and usually I lurk in the forums to learn from many of the students and veteran CRNAs that post here. I felt it was necessary to post about my experience at the 2014 Mid Year Assembly because of how amazing it was. I was given the incredible opportunity to attend the 2014 MYA with the assistance of the scholarship from Eileen and my nurse anesthesia program at Our Lady of Lourdes Medical Center in South Jersey. I really want to thank Eileen and Mike from the board and making the opportunity possible, as well as my mentors Juan Quintana and Steve Smith who are both immensely knowledgeable in the field, and also my program at OLLMC, as well as the NJANA board who both constantly support me, and my classmates who attended with me. I really want to also thank all the CRNAs and students who took time to talk with me and give me exceptional insight into the field.

      First off, I must say with certainty that this assembly was simply amazing. The knowledge presented regarding political issues, the current trends of the healthcare field, and the business within the field were extremely interesting and enjoyable. Topics that you will not find in any book, but from experience and knowledge of the innovative leaders of our profession are presented to future CRNAs so we can continually progress this field. The unity that is demonstrated from the CRNAs at this meeting is astounding, and I for one am proud to be going into one of the most amazing and progressive fields in healthcare. In addition, having the opportunity to be in Washington D.C. and meet my state’s representatives to talk about my current issues regarding my career was truly a humbling experience that I yearn to continue to do every year at the state and federal level.

      My goal is to constantly be involved and promote the profession to demonstrate that we are such valuable healthcare clinicians especially with the financial environment we are in. The immense amount of effort that goes into this meeting (as well as the push to constantly progress the field) should be seen by all CRNAs and SRNAs, and I highly recommend any CRNA, SRNA, or future CRNA to get involved and try to attend their state and national meetings. I completely understand that to go to these meetings can be difficult with life and work, but I believe it is so vital to just support the association and maintain the unity of the field so we can continually progress and stay strong. Thanks again very much to everyone, I truly appreciate everything that was done for me. It will not go unnoticed.
