New Mexico Association of Nurse Anesthetists (NMANA)


As many of you know, we lost a very special member of our CRNA community recently. Lorrie Bennett was a dedicated CRNA, hard-working NMANA board member and an all-around beautiful human being. In her memory, we have started a scholarship fund to support future NM CRNAs with their education costs. Please click on the link below to donate.

Thank you to our incredible sponsors!

Your support of NMANA helps us continue our work for New Mexico's CRNAs.

New Mexico State University is developing a nurse anesthesiology concentration in their DNP program. NMSU made the decision to launch this program due to the critical need for anesthesia providers in the state, especially in rural health centers and critical access hospitals. To serve the healthcare needs of the state, the curriculum will have a focus on rural health and health disparities in New Mexico.  NMSU has been collaborating with the NMANA and other stakeholders from around the state during the program planning process.

NMSU has launched a $1.25 million fundraising campaign to support program development. Please consider contributing to the development and launch of the first nurse anesthesia program in New Mexico. Every donation will help NMSU move closer to its goal of graduating 25 CRNAs per year.
