The Core Modules provide a way for nurse anesthetists to stay informed about current literature and evidence-based knowledge. Recognized CPC Program Core Module providers will be listed on this page as the Core Modules become available. The NBCRNA does not produce Core Modules.

Interested in developing Core Modules? View the recognition specifications.

NOTE: One Core Module from each of the four content areas is required in each 4-year CPC cycle. Core Module credits also cross-count as Class A credits, since they are both prior-approved and include an assessment. Beginning in 2020/2021—whenever the CRNA's second 4-year CPC cycle begins (for all CRNAs initially certified prior to 8/1/2016)--the Core Modules will become a required component of the CPC Program.
