At HSS, we will never stand in the way of fresh and innovative thinking. So when you join us as a nurse anesthetist (CRNA)—an advanced practice nurse (APN)—your ideas and enthusiasm will ensure our medical and nursing practice, and our organization, is constantly growing and improving. You’ll work independently and in collaboration with HSS physicians and surgeons in one of a variety of specialties & subspecialties to analyze each step of the care and treatment process, and develop clear strategies that help our patients achieve optimal healing and recovery.
At HSS, CRNAs provide anesthesia and anesthesia-related care services upon request, assignment, and referral by the patient’s physician/surgeon most often to facilitate diagnostic, therapeutic, and surgical procedures.
Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist (CRNA), Anesthesia
Joined HSS in 2009
HSS was the first place I applied to after graduating from my CRNA Master's degree program. I’d heard great things about how people worked so collaboratively and it’s true. CRNAs work hand-in-hand with top anesthesiologists and surgeons. I’ve had the opportunity to be part of so many incredible procedures, including spine straightening for severe scoliosis on children. From anesthesiologists sharing research findings and relevant journal articles to HSS providing tuition reimbursement for my doctorate, we’re always encouraged to learn and grow. Progression is part of the DNA at HSS, including their provision of resources we need to better ourselves.
Nurse Anesthetist, Anesthesia
Joined HSS in 2012
When I was an engineer, I sat in a cubicle all day staring at a screen. I decided I wanted a career change and now, as a nurse anesthetist at HSS, I have the opportunity to meet new people from across the U.S. and around the world every day. People travel here because of our world-class reputation – and that’s something everyone, from surgeons to assistants, works hard to maintain. We do multiple surgeries in a day and strive for perfection every time. HSS is definitely the right fit for me, not just because of its excellent reputation, but because everyone here is dedicated and seems so gratified by their work.
