Last weekend, the Pennsylvania Association of Nurse Anesthetists gathered more than 365 CRNAs and SRNAs for our Spring Symposium at The Hotel Hershey. The spring business meeting and state update offered during the symposium educated our members on the latest news and communications regarding our advocacy and legislative efforts, finances, programs and more. PANA is actively recruiting Ambassadors to take action with us so we can offer one collective voice in Harrisburg and in Washington, D.C. Learn more about how to become a PANA Ambassador today!
