CRNA Certification Exam Review

In the surgical field, a Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist (CRNA) is vital to a successful surgery. A CRNA is an Advanced Practice Registered Nurse (APRN) with a graduate-level education and certified by the American Association of Nurse Anesthetists (AANA). They usually have practiced critical care for one year prior.

Since a CRNA is so educated in the field, when they have a position, it is unlikely they will be replaced by anesthesiologists. Every two years, a CRNA must become recertified, and they require continual education credits depending on the state.

Many nurses that have CRNA certification used the book Anesthesia Secrets by Duke. It provides straight forward Q&A formatting with reviews of a lot of topics. It covers equipment, daily essential information, pharmacology, disorders, and more.

Another book recommended by CRNAs is Anesthesiology Review by Faust. It has a comprehensive coverage of all the necessary topics, and has an easy to use format. It is in-depth in areas required, and is great for a CRNA foundation and review.
