On The Cover
Displayed on the cover is an aerial photograph of "Sacred Trust," a 3-acre work of "crop art" by environmental artist Stan Herd of Lawrence, Kan. The work of art, which is located near the Topeka, Kan. Airport, was commissioned by a group of Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists called CPR (CRNAs for PR) to commemorate the 2001 National Nurse Anesthetists Week. The CRNA group, which can be seen gathered in the CRNA's "cap" in the photo, chose this inventive method to promote the profession of nurse anesthesia and convey the idea that "CRNAs are outstanding in their field."
