More about CRNAs
Nurse anesthetists have a long and colorful history. According to the American Association of Nurse Anesthetists (AANA), nurse anesthetists were the first healthcare providers dedicated to the specialty of anesthesia. As far back as the 1800s, nurses gave anesthesia to wounded soldiers on Civil War battlefields.
Today, CRNAs, according to the AANA, administer more than 34 million anesthetics in the United States each year and practice in many settings. Some of these settings include: hospital surgical suites, ERs and EDs, delivery rooms and ambulatory surgical centers as well as dentist, podiatrist and ophthalmologist offices, plastic surgery centers, with pain management specialists, in the U.S. military and VA facilities as well as in Public Health capacities. In rural areas of the U.S., CRNAs are often the primary providers of anesthesia.
