SRNAs prepare to embark on new careers

The SRNA class of 2020 is graduating in the midst of a historic pandemic, and their knowledge and skills in patient safety will never be more essential to the healthcare system. Because of COVID-19, we can’t give them the graduation ceremony or celebration they’ve earned, but we congratulate them for their hard work and achievements over the past three years and thank them for their contributions to the Department of Anesthesia and University of Iowa Hospitals & Clinics during their training. We wish them all the best in their new careers.
