    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
