Amy Townsend, MD of Physicians for Patient Protection writes in:
Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists (CRNAs) are working to get the Idaho Board of Nursing (BON) to officially change their name from nurse anesthetist to NURSE ANESTHESIOLOGISTS.
This is a blatant attempt to blur lines between physician and non physician and to deceive the public. The American Association of Nurse Anesthetists (AANA) plans to do this in every single state.
It is important that we all stand up to these assaults on our colleagues in every specialty.
Please help by spreading this information and signing this letter (after modifying it to your satisfaction).
Transparency in healthcare is critical. And this name change is the exact opposite of what healthcare needs.
