NBCRNA / CPC Overview 2018-04-19T08:21:49+00:00

Beginning August 1, 2016, CRNAs will begin a new recertification process developed by the National Board of Certification and Recertification for Nurse Anesthetists (NBCRNA). Med City Anesthesia Seminars is committed to providing CRNAs with what is needed to fulfill these new requirements. The Continued Professional Certification (CPC) Program consists of four components required each four-year cycle:

Class A Requirements
Class A continuing education credits are prior approved, assessed CE. CRNAs are required to have 60 Class A assessed credits during each four-year CPC cycle. Class A credits not applied toward the Class A requirement can be applied toward the Class B requirement.

Class B Requirements
Class B credits do not require prior approval or an assessment. CRNAs are required to have 40 Class B credits during each four-year CPC cycle. Class A credits can be applied toward the Class B requirement and can be used to fulfill the entire Class B requirement.

Core Modules
Completion of four core modules will be required during each four-year CPC cycle. Modules are optional during the first four-year CPC cycle (see recertification cycle timeline below). Core modules are prior approved, assessed CE and provide Class A credit. Each of the four modules (Airway Management Technique, Applied Clinical Pharmacology, Human Physiology and Pathophysiology, and Anesthesia Equipment and Technology) will include a formal assessment to complete (e.g. multiple-choice questions).
