NAFA and AANA / NBCRNA CE and Recertification Requirements:
Nurse Anesthesiology Faculty Associates (NAFA), a leader in continuing education, is pleased to inform clients that all NAFA events are designed to meet AANA Class A and Class B credit requirements. Once NAFA programs are approved by AANA, and so noted on our website, clients will be able to apply their earned CE credits to meet Class A and/or Class B recertification requirements. Additionally, in planning CE offerings, careful consideration is given to include content congruent with the NBCRNA's "Core Module" topical areas. While core modules are not required for CRNA recertification at this time, NAFA has chosen to include this content to best prepare CRNAs for future requirements.
