NBCRNA Gives Gift to Nurse Anesthesia Program in Thomas Healey's Name

A very generous gift was given to the program in memory of Tom Healey. Tom worked with Saint Mary's University on and off for many years. Tom was instrumental in assiting SMU to find a location for the new graduate programs in Minneapolis back in the early 1980's. He was program director for the nurse anesthesia and surgical technology programs and clinical director for the nurse anesthesia program until 2011. Sponsorship for students and faculty to AANA or MANA meetings will be provided. Funds will also be used to secure resources needed to propel an exceptional nurse anesthesia program into the future. Our sincere thanks to everyone at the NBCRNA.
