AANA member resources for navigating the new CPC Program

CPC Facts

Beginning in 2016, Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists will begin to be recertified under a new process developed by the National Board of Certification and Recertification for Nurse Anesthetists (NBCRNA). The AANA Continuing Education Committee (CEC) has developed all of the resources CRNAs need to understand and meet the requirements of the NBCRNA's new Continued Professional Certification (CPC) program, from websites detailing the specifics and timelines of the new CPC program, to educational resources to meet the new requirements, to tools to help track your progress. Key aspects of the new CPC program include:

  • Class A credits (assessed CE): 60 credits every four year cycle
  • Class B credits (professional development): 40 credits every four year cycle
  • Core Modules: every four years; however, optional for first four year cycle
  • CPC Examination: Every eight years; does not affect certification status until 2032/2033
