Reentry/Refresher Program

Effective August 1, 2016, the NBCRNA Refresher Program has Transitioned to the Reentry Program.

In alignment with the August 1, 2016 implementation of the Continued Professional Certification (CPC) Program, the NBCRNA has transitioned its Refresher Program to a new Reentry Program. Applications for the Refresher Program will no longer be accepted. If you are already in the Refresher Program, you will complete the applicable Refresher Program requirements.

 NEW: NBCRNA Refresher Program Transitioning to Reentry Program


The new Reentry Program is offered to those nurse anesthetists who have had a lapse in their certification and/or their license or authority to practice nurse anesthesia for four or more years and who wish to reestablish their eligibility for certification and reenter the nurse anesthesia practice. The Reentry Program provides the opportunity for a nurse anesthetist to obtain current knowledge and skills necessary for safe nurse anesthesia practice and enables the nurse anesthetist to become CPC compliant and restore his/her eligibility for certification.
