Mark McGraw, winner of the MIRIAM POWELL scholarship, has been interested in pursuing a career as a nurse anesthetist since he got his BSN from the University of Delaware. After college he entered the critical care nurse internship program at Christiana Care Health System and upon completion of his internship went to work in the emergency and trauma program where he has constant exposure to multiple patient types, complaints and illnesses. In 2007 he was recruited to join the mobile intensive care transport team, transferring the ‘sickest of sick’ to the facility for management by many of the specialties available at Christiana. He is the sole care provider for these critically ill patients outside the confines of a hospital during transport.
