AANA Foundation

Student Advocate Program

AANA Foundation Student Advocates serve as a liaison between the Foundation and each student’s respective nurse anesthesia program. Student Advocates share information about the Foundation with their student colleagues including general information, dates and deadlines for Foundation events, scholarships, and awards. The Student Advocate program is designed to provide students with a mutually-beneficial relationship in which the AANA Foundation delivers mentoring, networking, and professional development opportunities. The program provides students with many opportunities for professional growth and development, and serves as a mechanism to increase awareness among students regarding the valuable work conducted by the AANA Foundation that “advances the science of anesthesia through education and research.” If you have questions or would like to learn more about the program, please contact Luanne Irvin at lirvin@aana.com or (847) 655-1173.

If your nurse anesthesia program does not have a Student Advocate and you would like to apply, please complete and submit an application. The Spring Application deadline is March 31 and the Fall Application deadline is October 31.
