James Nelson, MSN, MHA, CRNA

Holding both a Masters in Nurse Anesthesia and a Masters in Healthcare Administration, James is a passionate champion for the people he works with (patients, co-workers, and surgeons) as well as for the process that makes it possible. Serving as Chief Anesthetist at a Portland hospital and managing the anesthesia department of another in the Gorge, Jim’s practical in-the-field experience allows him to effectively streamline the workflow and manage his teams, all while keeping patient health his top priority. When not running between hospitals, he enjoys metalworking and traveling with his family.
