After graduating from the University of Nebraska School of Anesthesia, Steve started a private anesthesia practice in Central Nebraska. The practice began with four hospital contracts covered by two CRNAs. Twenty years later, the practice had grown to six CRNAs covering nine Hospitals.
There was a tremendous need for a modernized dynamic anesthesia practice in these rural areas, and the incorporation of regional anesthesia and a comprehensive pain management practice allowed many of these small hospitals to provide state of the art anesthesia and surgical care.
After 40 years of clinical practice in a high paced broad based practice, additional college education, and extensive involvement in protecting and expanding nurse anesthesia practice through regulatory and legislative participation, Dr. Wooden is now focusing on teaching undergraduate and practicing CRNAs.
