NBCRNA Focus on Research

The NBCRNA understands that research and technologies will continue to impact your CRNA practice in various ways over the coming years. Through the work of the NBCRNA Evaluation and Research Advisory Committee (ERAC), the NBCRNA is leveraging today's technologies and research to continue to develop the evaluation of the current NBCRNA credentialing programs, and investigation of the question: What is the best way to assess knowledge and competence over time in CRNA practice?

 To focus on this, the ERAC and five subsequent subcommittees, comprised of subject-matter experts, have been established and are working on various research projects and initiatives. Visit the other pages in this Research section to find out more about the studies, resources and activities of the NBCRNA.
