Accreditation Statement

These programs have been prior approved by the American Association of Nurse Anethetists for Class A CE credits.

Effective May 1, 2013, the AANA does not award CME credits for BLS certification or recertification courses. This change was made in response to a revision by the American Nurses Credentialing Centers (ANCC) with the goal of providing quality educational offerings that provide CRNAs supplemental courses that meet their level of licensure.

Credit can only be obtained once per 3 year period.
