Information about CRNA’s:
What is a CRNA (Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist)??
Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists (CRNA) are licensed registered nurses (RNs) who undergo extensive graduate level education and training, become nationally certified by exam after graduation, and then provide services similar to an anesthesiologist. CRNAs practice in all 50 states and administer approximately 32 million anesthetics to patients in the United States each year.
Nurse anesthetists administer anesthesia to patients to keep them safe, comfortable, and pain free during surgery and other procedures. They stay with their patients from the moment they go to sleep until the time they wake up, monitoring their every heartbeat and breath, and adjusting their anesthesia as needed.
