**UPDATE August 20, 2020
To ensure the safety of program administrators, faculty, students, COA onsite reviewers, and other individuals involved in the onsite review process, the COA has determined that it will postpone all onsite visits previously scheduled for Spring 2020 (with accreditation decisions previously scheduled for the October 2020 COA meeting) and Fall 2020 (with accreditation decisions previously scheduled for the May 2021 COA meeting). COA staff will continue to communicate with the impacted programs regarding the rescheduling of these reviews and decisions. In the meantime, please note that the COA will extend the period of accreditation of any programs that have experienced a change in scheduled visit and decision dates as a result of the COVID-19 crisis.
Programs Seeking Accreditation
The following nurse anesthesia educational programs will undergo onsite accreditation visits. This list is provided as public notification for purposes of third party presentation.
Please direct all comments to the Chief Executive Officer, Council on Accreditation of Nurse Anesthesia Educational Programs.

However, third parties wishing to present an oral or written statement must notify the Council at least 60 days prior to the COA meeting at which the program will be reviewed. To view the Council’s meeting dates please refer to the Upcoming Meeting Dates page.
