Built by Nurse Anesthetists, for Nurse Anesthetists.

When we set out to create a trusted online collaboration platform specifically for the likes of Nurse Anesthetists, we wanted to be sure that it met the highest expectations. With input from active Nurse Anesthetists, we were able to launch CRNA Connect in 2013.

From clinical to retirement.

Our goal is to provide a dynamic area for students and nurse anesthetists alike to leverage the power of social media and gain useful knowledge into their field. We’re ready to make a positive impact!

Unlock the power of collaboration with our verification process.

What sets us apart from the competition is our unique verification process. You can rest assured that users within CRNA Connect are all verified by their student or state licensing credentials. See for yourself, get started here.
