CRNAs are highly educated providers with extensive experience
managing critically ill patients.
They are qualified to assess
patients, provide complex critical
care, and make judgments based
on their education, training, licensure, and certification.
Independent or Team-Based
CRNAs are trained and currently practice autonomously and independently across the United States. CRNAs also provide expert services and augment physician intensivists and hospitalists in a team environment to care for critically-ill patients.
