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.

Testimonials

“I have been attending the NAFA Williamsburg meeting for about 15 years. It always has a focus on the current issues of anesthesia practice. It is impossible to attend the NAFA meeting and not take away new information that is applicable to your particular practice. Networking with colleagues from around the country is a great benefit as well.”
R.. Apps, CRNA

"I have attended several NAFA conferences. They are always extremely organized and offer pertinent sessions that are helpful to nurse anesthetists. The conference is cost effective and the schedule allows for lots of free time to enjoy your destination. That is why I keep coming back!"
A. Brower, CRNA

"This is my third NAFA meeting. Each time the quality of the speakers and evidence based discussions has been amazing. The whole seminar is well organized with pertinent discussions that can guide your practice. Each facility they have held conferences in, either Snowshoe or Hilton Head are first rate - awesome group!"
D. Brock, CRNA
