Continuing Education for Anesthesia Professionals

Anesthesiologists and certified registered nurse anesthetists (CRNAs), like most practicing healthcare professionals, are required to obtain a specific number of continuing education credits in order to keep their licenses current. Exact requirements vary by state and by practice role.

In general, CRNAs must complete 40 hours of continuing education every two years in order to maintain their CRNA status, even if the state where they practice does not require continuing education for RNs. Learn more about CRNA requirements by visiting the American Association of Nurse Anesthetists' website.

The continuing medical education requirements of anesthesiologists depend upon the state of practice. An anesthesiologist's years in practice and sub-specialty also play a role in the number of required hours. Visit your state medical board's website for information about specific continuing medical education requirements.
