Nurse anesthesiology educational programs lack the wellness interventions and resources to promote students’ well-being. Nurse anesthesiology education is inherently stressful, and student registered nurse anesthetists (SRNAs) must demonstrate a high level of resilience for successful completion. Because of the coronavirus disease 2019 (COVID-19) pandemic, social unrest from racial protests, and uncertain economic conditions, SRNAs are facing unprecedented levels of stress. Additionally, traditional clinical and didactic training has been drastically interrupted, leading to feelings of anxiety and uneasiness. Much research has demonstrated that high levels of stress and anxiety can lead to burnout and mental health concerns, including fatigue, depression, substance abuse, and suicidal ideation. Nurse anesthesiology educational programs offer ways to promote students’ well-being, through offered wellness interventions and resources.
