The Council on Accreditation of Nurse Anesthesia Educational Programs (COA) the authoritative source on nurse anesthesia programs, is proud to announce its new comprehensive CRNA School Search engine, a database containing the most up-to-date information about each of the nation’s 113 accredited nurse anesthesia programs across the country.
The CRNA School Search functionality provides a wealth of information for those interested in learning more about nurse anesthesia programs. Through this easy to use database, visitors can gain in-depth knowledge regarding tuition costs, admittance requirements, class size, program length, curriculum, and more. The most unique function about this database is that it allows for a side-by-side comparison of up to four programs, eliminating the back-and-forth between school pages to weigh the pros and cons.
“CRNA School Search will benefit potential applicants and programs by providing accurate and up to date information on nurse anesthesia programs.”
Kathy Cook, CRNA, MS, COA Chair
Most importantly, CRNA School Search was created by the COA, which is the sole organization responsible for establishing educational standards for and accrediting nurse anesthesia programs in the United States and its territories. Each accredited nurse anesthesia program must adhere to the standards set forth by the COA, making it the authoritative source on nurse anesthesia programs. The COA would like to express its appreciation to Whilly Ching, CRNA, for the work he did to develop and create the first CRNA school search website and the NBCRNA for its financial assistance in developing this functionality.
