My name is Michael Hartman. As a high school student I had many opportunities to shadow my neighbor who was a CRNA. I decided this was the career path I wanted to pursue and shortly after began nursing school with the end goal of becoming a CRNA. I received my ADN and BSN degrees from Weber State University. I then obtained a Master of Science degree in Nurse Anesthesiology from Mount Marty College and began practicing as a CRNA in 2001. For the past 15 years I have lived and worked in Vernal, Utah. I am currently partnered with 3 other CRNAs in a CRNA only group.
