NBCRNA Associated Organizations

The NBCRNA networks and interacts with various organizations throughout the year on credentialing, certification, and testing-related matters. These relationships provide valuable information-sharing opportunities, as well as visibility of our profession and credential. The NBCRNA regularly works with the American Association of Nurse Anesthetists (AANA), the AANA Foundation, the Council on Accreditation of Nurse Anesthesia Educational Programs  (COA), and the Citizen Advocacy Center (CAC) on joint projects.

We continually work to further strengthen the credential and to build more choice and convenience into a certification process that is based on standards that everyone can trust.
