Hearing and Call for Comments on the Proposed Revisions to the Accreditation Standards

At its January, June, and October 2020 meetings, the Council on Accreditation of Nurse Anesthesia Educational Programs (COA) reviewed proposed revisions to its Standards, policies and procedures from the joint COA/AANA Full Scope of Practice Competency Task Force (FSOPCTF) and the COA’s Standards Revision Subcommittee.  Several of these proposed revisions were previously released to the COA’s community of interest for comment in September 2020.

A recorded hearing in which COA Chief Executive Officer Frank Gerbasi, PhD, CRNA and COA President Laura Bonanno, PhD, DNP, CRNA introduce and provide additional information regarding the proposed revisions is available to watch below.

The COA is seeking feedback from its community of interest regarding these possible changes. Please view the recorded hearing and revision handout and provide comments.
