So many are called, but only a few are chosen! You have finally made the decision to apply to a nurse anesthesia program. Before you start navigating any of the 113 accredited nurse anesthesia programs’ websites and firing up the search engines, you must be proactive in being well acquainted with the most updated Practice Doctorate Standards for Accreditation of Nurse Anesthesia Programs. These proposed changes will determine what doctorate degree will be awarded upon successful completion of a nurse anesthesia program.

How do you become a Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist (CRNA)? In order to be a CRNA, you must graduate from a nurse anesthesia program accredited by the Council of Accreditation of Nurse Anesthesia Educational Programs (COA) and successfully pass the national certification examination administered by the National Board of Certification and Recertification for Nurse Anesthetists (NBCRNA).
