Our clinical staff consists of Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists (CRNA’s).

All of CAPA’s CRNA’s are certified by American Association of Nurse Anesthetists and are licensed by the North Carolina Board of Nursing. A CRNA is an advanced practice registered nurse who has completed education and clinical requirements to provide anesthesia to patients. Prerequisites to CRNA training include an active RN license, a minimum of one year critical care nursing experience, and a Bachelor of Science degree in nursing. A CRNA has completed 24-36 months of education and clinical practice in an accredited Nurse Anesthesia Program and passed a national certification exam. A CRNA receives a Master of Science degree in nursing specializing in anesthesia upon completion of his or her training program.
