California Association of Nurse Anesthetists
"The definitive source of leadership, advocacy and education for the CRNAs of California."

CANA Foundation

Our mission is to improve the knowledge and expertise of California Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists (CRNAs) and Student Nurse Anesthetists (SRNAs) in order to improve the health care of people undergoing anesthesia.

The California Association of Nurse Anesthetists Foundation was established in December 2004 as the charitable affiliate of the California Association of Nurse Anesthetists. Our goal is to provide a tax-deductible foundation to receive donations and grants from individuals and other funding sources. We believe that this is a necessary step to help assure the future success of nurse anesthetists and anesthetists in training in the state of California.
