At a young age, Brian Lowe found himself undergoing a surgical procedure. Lowe was anxious but recalls the nurse anesthetist’s calming words and presence putting him at ease. He credits that experience with setting him on his path to becoming a CRNA.

In his professional life, Lowe is always seeking ways to provide a similar positive experience to his patients, and, as he embarked on his path to becoming an educator, inspiring his students to do the same.

“I realized through clinical practice, I could change the lives of thousands, but through teaching, I could change the lives of millions by helping to shape the nurse anesthetists of tomorrow,” Lowe explains.

Lowe received his DNP from UB’s School of Nursing. He practices clinically at United Memorial Medical Center in Batavia, New York. He is committed to advocating for CRNAs and the nurse anesthesia profession, and to passing on these values to his students.

“Practicing to the fullest extent of my education and training is of paramount importance to me,” says Lowe. “I am sometimes the only anesthesia provider in the hospital. It is a huge responsibility that keeps me motivated to work harder, to be always at my best. I have an insatiable hunger for knowledge, to shape my practice using the most current evidence.” 

Lowe vows to ignite this same passion in all his students.
