Hearing and Focus Session on Draft Standards to be Held at Annual Meeting

 

The AANA Education Committee and the Council on Accreditation of Nurse Anesthesia Educational Programs (COA) invite you to participate in the following activities at the 2013 AANA Annual Meeting:

Saturday, Aug.10

The Education Committee will hold a hearing on the second drafts of the Practice Doctorate Standards for Accreditation of Nurse Anesthesia Programs and the Standards for Accreditation of Post-Graduate Fellowships during the Assembly of School Faculty (ASF) from 3:30 p.m. to 4:30 p.m. in the Mirage Events Center C1, the same location as the ASF.

Sunday, Aug. 11

The Education Committee will host a Focus Session on the second drafts of the Practice Doctorate Standards for Accreditation of Nurse Anesthesia Programs and the Standards for Accreditation of Post-Graduate Fellowships from 6 to 7 p.m. in the Trinidad Room of the Mirage Hotel. The open focus session is designed to allow individuals interested in further commenting on or discussing the draft Standards to do so in a smaller setting. Members of the COA’s Standards Revision Task Force as well as the COA will be present.

Please note these events provide the last opportunities for educators to provide oral comments on the draft Standards prior to their adoption by the COA in January 2014.

A limited number of copies of the Standards will be available onsite.  To insure you have copies, you can print your own in advance from the COA’s website at home.coa.us.com.

Please contact the COA at accreditation@coa.us.com or 847-655-1160 with any questions, comments or concerns.
