Bloomsburg University nurse anesthesia students recently visited the Danville High School to provide an opportunity for the school’s Health Careers Foundation class to have hands-on experience with clinical skills of a certified registered nurse anesthetist (CRNA), also giving them insight into future career possibilities in health care.

Working with BU students, the Danville students participated in skills such as intubation and airway management, and the proper technique for sterile gowning and gloving. In addition to the hands-on demonstration, BU students briefly described the educational process necessary to become a CRNA.

BU collaborates its graduate nurse anesthesia program with Geisinger Health System, led by Brenda Wands, Ph.D., MBA, CRNA, program director, and Debra Minzola, MSN, CRNA, assistant program director.
