KU Nurse Anesthesia Education Ann. Fundraiser 2017
The proceeds of this event are used to assist students in funding mission trips, national meetings, and supporting student scholarships. These funds are essential for allowing students to experience these amazing opportunities during their education.
We will have several of the items on display at the event for last-minute decision making. We are so excited to offer many amazing items generously donated by several local businesses that are many of our favorite KC spots.
Even if you are unable to attend the event this year, we would love for you to check out and bid on the auction items.
FYI- If an item is purchased over the retail value, then the amount spent over the retail value is tax deductible. Ex: if $15 is spent on an item that retails for $10, then $5 of that purchase is tax deductible.
About KU Nurse Anesthesia Education
KU offers a comprehensive, 36-month Doctor of Nurse Anesthesia Practice degree in which registered nurses receive extensive education in both the academic and clinical components of nurse anesthesia. Founded in 1966, KU's program has produced a consistently high level of outstanding clinicians, educators and leaders in the nurse anesthesia profession.
The extraordinary academic and clinical resources offered by the University of Kansas Medical Center and The University of Kansas Hospital, along with outstanding clinical affiliate sites, enhance the student's learning opportunities. Graduates will have learned to administer anesthesia to all patient populations in a variety of clinical settings using all current anesthesia techniques. Nurse anesthetists trained here are able to function independently or in a group-practice setting.
As one of only two nurse anesthesia programs in the state of Kansas, KU plays a vital role in ensuring anesthesia care is available across the state, especially in rural areas. Certified registered nurse anesthetists comprise 70% of all anesthesia providers in Kansas and 83 percent of the hospitals in Kansas rely exclusively on CRNAs for anesthesia care.
Nurse anesthesia is one of many academic programs of the KU School of Health Professions and is located on the campus of the KU Medical Center in Kansas City, Kan.
