Hear from Our Nurses

Out of all the area hospitals, VCU Health is where I felt the most supported. Our CRNA team is amazing. There is a huge variety. If you don’t know something, one of your CRNA peers will know – as we see any type of patient and aliments.

– Ashley Stigall, CRNA in Anesthesiology

I wanted to be at VCU Health because it is a level-one trauma center. You are able to see a little bit of everything. I enjoy helping people who are at their worst part of their lives, and make a difference.

– Lauren Metzger, RN at ICU

I wanted to be somewhere that had everything in-house. There is nowhere else to send patients. I did clinical training around different areas within Richmond, and VCU Health was so impressive. As a level-one trauma center, we have so many opportunities. We even help prepare the commonwealth if there is an Ebola outbreak.
