CRNA faculty appointed to AANA Committee

Nurse anesthesia assistant director, Michelle Canale, MSN, was recently appointed to the American Association of Nurse Anesthetists (AANA) Education Committee.

 Canale, who is a CRNA assistant professor for USF Nursing, was selected by the AANA Board of Directors to inform and influence all aspects of the organization. She will hold the position for one year.

AANA represents more than 50,000 CRNAs and student registered nurse anesthetists nationwide to help influence CRNA education and practice standards and guidelines. The Education Committee plays a major role at AANA – impacting more than 115 nurse anesthesia programs in the country.

“I’m incredibly fortunate to work with a great team of nurse anesthesia educators, and play a role in the history profession and education of future nurse anesthetists,” said Canale.

Besides her leadership and faculty roles at USF Nursing, she also practices CRNA part-time at Sarasota Memorial Hospital. Canale joined USF in 2014.
