NAFA and AANA / NBCRNA CE and Recertification Requirements:

Nurse Anesthesiology Faculty Associates (NAFA), a leader in continuing education, is pleased to inform clients that all NAFA events are designed to meet Class A credit requirements. Once NAFA programs are approved by AANA, and so noted on our website, clients will be able to apply their earned CE credits to meet Class A and/or Class B recertification requirements.  Additionally, in planning CE offerings, careful consideration is given to include content congruent with the NBCRNA’s “Core Module” topical areas.

There’s a reason I keep coming back: Great educational content, excellent presenters, and all at a beautiful resort. What more can you ask for?
