A Glimpse Of The Past Through The AANA Nurse Anesthetist Collection - Nurses were the first professional group to provide anesthesia services in the US and nurse anesthesia was recognized as the first clinical nurse specialty in the late 1800's after Dr. Crawford Long pioneered the use of ether in surgical procedures. Surgeons saw nurses as the professionals who could give their undivided attention to patient care during surgery. The most famous nurse anesthetist was Alice Magaw who worked at St. Mary's Hospital, which became internationally renown as the Mayo Clinic. Dr. Mayo called Magaw the "mother of anesthesia." Since WWI, nurse anesthetists have been the primary anesthesia providers in combat areas of every war in which the US has been engaged. Among the more notable programs of nurse anesthesia was at Johns Hopkins Hospital. The professional association AANA was founded in 1931 by Agatha Hodgins, and today represents more than 30,000 nurse anesthetists providing a rigid certification and certification programs.The nurses who are members of AANA proudly serve in the medical field. They realize they are part of the overall health picture which is made up of a wide variety of areas and specialties, which are represented here by individual commemorative postage stamps.
