In Memoriam

Russell R. Lynn, CRNA, MSN, APN


It is with great sadness that the COA notes the passing of our newest Educator Representative on the COA, Russ Lynn, CRNA, MSN, APN, Program Administrator, University of Pennsylvania School of Nursing Nurse Anesthesia Program.  Russ joined the COA in October.  Though with us for only one meeting, his passion for the nurse anesthesia profession and dedication to nurse anesthesia education were evident.  Prior to his election as a COA Director, Russ served the COA as an onsite reviewer.
During the October COA meeting Russ recorded a brief video recounting his path to becoming a CRNA and educator, and why he wanted to serve on the Council. 
In honor of his memory, we are sharing Russ’s video with you.
