Overview

Join NAFA in a beautiful New England atmosphere of seaside-styled hotels from the late 1800s, where Disney's Yacht & Beach Club Resorts welcome guests into a nautical world of hardwood floors, brass fittings and luxurious accommodations. Relax along Stormalong Bay’s, a 3-acre lake, where you can enjoy water slides emerging from the life-size replica of a wrecked ship, lagoons, a slow river to float along in inner tubes and a sand-bottom pool.

By staying at a Disney resort, NAFA registrants will enjoy theme park tickets at convention rates, extended theme park hours, free transportation within all of Walt Disney World and complimentary service to and from the airport aboard Disney’s Magical Express.

Please note that schedules, times and venues are subject to change.

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.
