Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists

Nurse anesthetists have been providing anesthesia care to patients in the United States for more than 150 years. CRNAS are anesthesia professionals who safely administer more than 49 million anesthetics to patients each year in the U.S., according to the American Association of Nurse Anesthetists (AANA) 2019 Member Profile Survey. CRNAs are the primary providers of anesthesia care in rural America, enabling healthcare facilities in these medically underserved areas to offer obstetrical, 外科手术, pain management and trauma stabilization services.

As advanced practice registered nurses, CRNAs practice with a high degree of autonomy and professional respect. They carry a heavy load of responsibility and are compensated accordingly. In addition, the cost efficiency of CRNAs helps control escalating healthcare costs. For more facts and resources about nurse anesthesia, visit aana.com.
