Nurse anesthetists have been administering anesthesia to patients in the United States for over 150 years, ever since the Civil War.
The credential CRNA (Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist) came into existence in 1956. CRNAs are anesthesia professionals who safely administer more than 40 million anesthetics to patients each year in the United States, according to the American Association of Nurse Anesthetists (AANA) 2017 Practice Profile Survey.
There are a number of ways to support CANA and its activities on behalf of the nurse anesthesia community.
CANA has released a public service announcement about CRNAs — have you seen it? Watch Now!
