"I have attended the Hilton Head Island conference for 11 years. I continue to attend because of the beautiful location, first rate facilities, and quality speakers. These three reasons for returning are a testimony to NAFA and the professional and serious way they view the delivery of continuing education to CRNA's. As credentialing changes, I am sure NAFA will remain at the forefront in providing CRNA continuing education training."
B. Maize, CRNA

NAFA crna education seminar

"The NAFA Annual Anesthesia Seminar at Hilton Head provides current anesthesia research and evidence regarding best anesthesia practice in a timely fashion. Their respect for attendees knowledge needs is based on attention to prior year’s evaluations. The sessions provide multiple learning opportunities regarding not only recent practice updates but also optimal performance and safety concerns regarding patient care. A few days on Hilton Head creates the ambience of being among the island locals rather than a tourist.."
J. Jasienski, DNP, CRNA

"It has been a delight to participate in the 27th annual NAFA seminar held at Hilton Head South Carolina. The topics were current and useful in my practice. In addition, the speakers were easy to follow and open to questions throughout our course. Hilton Head in May is a wonderful place to visit."
