Meet your CE requirements as a CRNA or clinical administrator

All of Nurse Anesthesiology Faculty Associates’ online CE offerings meet Class A and Class B credit requirements. Successful completion of NAFA offerings will be reported to the AANA and appear on your CE dashboard. Additionally, in planning CE offerings, we give careful consideration to include content congruent with the NBCRNA’s “Core Module” topical areas. And we do it all within your department budget.


Over 40 years of Quality, Value and Service to the nurse anesthesia specialty.
NAFA Now is the online continuing education arm of Nurse Anesthesiology Faculty Associates. Since 1977, VCU and NAFA have led the nation in nurse anesthesia education – for students, career CRNAs, and advanced practitioners and faculty.

NAFA was founded in 1977 in conjunction with the historic move of incorporating nurse anesthesia education into the framework of formal graduate education. In 1979, VCU became the first program in the nation to award a Master of Science in Nurse Anesthesiology, and less than three decades later became the first in the U.S. to develop and implement the Doctor of Nurse Anesthesia Practice. Continuing education serves as our third focus of a “triangle” devoted to nurse anesthesia education.
