Lee Olson attended the Navy’s Nurse Anesthesia Program at George Washington University in 1988 and returned to Georgetown University in 1997 to obtain a Master of Science degree, after which he assumed the role of Clinical Research Coordinator and Instructor in San Diego. From 2003 to 2008, he was the Director of the Navy Nurse Corps Anesthesia Program and held academic appointments at the Graduate Schools of Nursing at both Georgetown University and the Uniformed Services University of the Health Sciences. He was instrumental in creating a full partnership with the Uniformed Services University, integrating the Navy Nurse Corps Anesthesia Program into the University and establishing the basis for the future Doctorate of Nursing Practice program which has now been implemented. He has also published several research articles and contributed to a well-respected nurse anesthesia textbook. His CRNA naval career included deployments on aircraft carriers, as well as missions to Desert Shield/Dessert Storm and the Horn of Africa, providing expeditionary care for joint security stabilization operations and humanitarian assistance. Lee has also assisted department leadership focusing on mentoring leaders; developed use of quality indicators, safety and quality improvements; and implemented electronic medical records systems. Since transitioning from a military career, he has been an independent anesthesia provider in California’s Central Valley providing a variety of services to ambulatory surgical centers and small, but busy, medical centers.
