CRNA ICU Staffing Models

A Critical Solution to a Critical Need

  • CRNAs in ICUs

    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.
