Adrianna Silva, DNAP, CRNA, ARNP, is a board-certified nurse anesthetist. She began her career as a volunteer in the Emergency Department at Harborview Medical Center in 2009, where she became passionate about Harborview’s mission and unique patient population. In 2011, she was hired on the Burn ICU and Pediatric Trauma Unit as a hospital assistant, where she assisted the nursing staff with patient care and daily dressing changes. She later rotated as a nursing student on the Psychiatric ICU. In 2014, she graduated with honors from the University of Washington with a B.S. in Nursing and a minor in Global Health and later accepted a position in the same ICU where she was first hired.
