CRNA Defined


What is a CRNA?

A Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist is an advanced registered nurse practitioner (ARNP) with a Master's degree who has graduated from an accredited program and passed the National Qualifying Examination. CRNAs administer 60% of the anesthetics given in the USA and practice in a variety of settings including small and large hospitals, general and specialty outpatient surgery centers, offices, obstetric units, and military settings. In rural America, CRNAs provide nearly all of the anesthesia services. CRNAs may work with anesthesiologists (physicians with a residency in anesthesia) in a team practice or may be the solo providers of anesthesia services in a facility or community.
