Welcome Students!

Letter from OANA Student Representative

Dear Fellow SRNAs,

I am pleased to represent you and be a part of the OANA board for the upcoming year. I am currently a Senior student at Newman University studying nurse anesthesia. Lots of exciting things are in store for us this year and I cannot wait to see where our OANA board will lead us. As the student representative, I look forward to learn a great deal from our CRNA leaders and to be a voice for SRNAs in Oklahoma. I hope to encourage other SRNAs to be active in this upcoming year as well as represent you the best I can. Please feel free to contact me with any ideas, questions, or concerns!

Best Regards,

Alexia McWaters BSN, SRNA

While Oklahoma does not currently have a school for Nurse Anesthesia there are several Hospitals and facilities within Oklahoma with residency programs for students from schools in surrounding states.  

We welcome students at all of our educational conferences with a greatly reduced student rate.  Conferences are held bi-annually.  for more information visit the conferences page.
