Research has shown that support persons of graduate students may experience stress similar to their students via a crossover effect. Previous surveys of support persons of Student Registered Nurse Anesthetists (SRNAs) have shown a need for preventative interventions to mitigate their stress. An orientation seminar was developed for the primary support persons of SRNAs beginning a small Midwestern Doctor of Nurse Anesthesia Practice (DNAP) program. All support persons were invited to complete a stress survey after the orientation seminar regardless of attendance. Overall, all support persons who attended the orientation seminar reported it as helpful. No support persons of 1st year SRNAs reported overall stress levels as moderate/high. First year SRNAs were surveyed regarding their stress levels, with results consistent with previous years’ surveys.
