Hear from the inaugural Certificant-Elected Director
Pamela Chambers, DNP, EJD, MSN, CRNA
"My time as a member of the Board of Directors of the NBCRNA has been enlightening, engaging, and just plain fun. I expected to learn and contribute; I’ve done both. It has been extremely enlightening to learn of the complex operations required to develop and administer the testing processes for certification and maintenance of certification. Additionally, the vast amount of knowledge present in one room discussing all matters to run a complicated national organization is just beyond amazing to the uninitiated. I’ve made lifelong friends and developed relationships with other CRNAs who feel as strongly as I do that we can never be satisfied with mediocrity. I now am comfortable advocating for my profession and managing all manner of intricate operations required for fiduciaries in today’s professional business environment. I am grateful for the opportunity to serve in this capacity and I am ready to tackle the next chapter in continued patient and provider advocacy."
