New Resource for Doctoral Students: Research Topics

In response to requests by the CRNA community, the NBCRNA Evaluation and Research Advisory Committee (ERAC) has developed a list of Research Topics related to CRNA continuing education, certification, and recertification. These topics are intended to serve as a resource for anesthesia students and practicing CRNAs who are seeking a Doctorate in Philosophy (PhD), Nursing (DNP), or Nurse Anesthesia Practice (DNAP).

Project Focus: SRNA DualEnroll

SRNA DualEnroll

SRNA DualEnroll is a joint project between the NBCRNA and AANA rolled out in 2018. This website allows nurse anesthesia programs to enroll students with AANA and NBCRNA at the same time—on one site and with one login to streamline the enrollment process!  


Video: Working Together to Support Students and CRNAs

The NBCRNA, AANA, COA, and AANA Foundation have worked together on a series of videos for student registered nurse anesthetists to help describe each organization’s function. These videos will also help students better understand how they can interact with each organization as they progress through their training and career. The organizations work together to support nurse anesthetists throughout their career. See More at our Youtube channel!
