THE STORY:

Hello kind donor,
My name is Robert Zottarelli. I am a nurse anesthesia student at Downstate Medical Center in Brooklyn, NY. I’m currently in the last year of my program and officially am finished in December 2015 (Hooray!). It took an extreme amount of effort and endless studying to get to this far but I couldn’t be happier with my decision. Being a nurse and caring for people courses through my blood. Practicing anesthesia as a nurse is my passion. As you may not know, because of the rigors of a nurse anesthesia program students are unable to work for duration of school. It is a necessity to eat and breathe our studies every day so we can become a competent and safe practitioner. Because of this our funds tend to be extremely limited which can also limit our opportunities.
Sigma Theta Tau (a national honor society for nursing) has recently chosen me as one of their Rising Stars of Scholarship and Research. They have invited me to present my research poster at their 43rd Biennial Convention that will be held 7-11 November 2015, in Las Vegas, Nevada, USA at the Aria Resort & Casino. My chosen poster presentation is “Effects of Controlled Hypotensive Total Intravenous Anesthesia in Reducing Perioperative Blood Loss in Patients Receiving Tranexamic Acid during Total Hip Arthroplasty.” This is a great honor and am very grateful for the opportunity and the support from my professors and amazing research partner and colleague. However, this opportunity doesn’t come free. The convention itself has a hefty price tag as well as travel costs and the cost to get my poster made. I am determined to raise enough money to cover the costs to attend this prestigious event to honor my school, fellow students, and professors. I also believe that it is important to participate in furthering nurse education and research and to be an example for future students to come.
The student council of nursing at my college has agreed to contribute money toward part of the costs to attend this program in November. While this is greatly appreciated I still need more funds to ensure I get there! That’s why I’m asking you for help. If you can contribute any amount (doesn’t matter how small [or LARGE]) it would benefit a dedicated nurse anesthesia student who is in need (and at the end of his financial rope) to attend an important event that could possibly one day have permanent impact on healthcare and education.
Below you will find a breakdown of actual costs and estimates. I am raising money to reach my goal but any contributions that exceed my goal amount will most certainly go toward other educational functions that I am part of for the remainder of the year (i.e. registration to take my boards, Lobby Day, etc.).
STTI’s Biennial Research Convention registration $339
Cost to print poster approx. $135
Roundtrip flight (NY to LV) approx. $410
Hotel $592
Food $135 (at $45 per day)
Subtotal $1611
(Minus $500 from other contributions)
Total $1111
Thank you so much for your consideration. Please share my link with others you believe may want to support a student nurse anesthetist in need.
With love and appreciate,
Rob
