The Annual Congress of the American Association of Nurse Anesthetists is designed to provide a variety of educational topics that will develop the knowledge and skills of CRNAs, allowing them to achieve maximum effectiveness in their roles as healthcare providers in diverse settings across the nation.
The AANA Professional Development Committee has reviewed program evaluations and other feedback from the AANA membership to identify the issues that affect nurse anesthesia practices. The topics are determined based on overall member surveys, national trends and issues, and gaps in knowledge to further develop the professional practice of CRNAs. The education activities were developed to meet the needs of CRNAs, student registered nurse anesthetists, and other healthcare providers with an interest in the topics.
