Nonprior Approval Applications

AANA and NBCRNA have collaborated to develop a modification for the Non-prior approval process for CRNAs recertifying in 2016 and 2017.
This change will allow CRNAs to submit non-prior approval applications for CE credits for educational programs approved by an accredited provider of continuing education, such as Continuing Medical Education (CME) or Continuing Nursing Education (CNE), along with all requirements as specified in the application directions, one of which is a statement of relevancy to your nurse anesthesia practice.


NEW! Complete Non-Prior Approval Applications entirely ONLINE.  Click here to begin. 


You can request the following applications as PDF forms from the person listed below the information regarding the forms needed, or you can do one of the following:

1. Open the form by double-clicking on the desired PDF link below, fill out online, and send it via email using the yellow submit button located in the lower right hand corner of the form.

2. Download the form to your local computer by right-clicking on the desired PDF link, save it to your computer. Open the file using Adobe Acrobat Reader, fill it out, print it and then send via mail or fax.

3. If you wish to send this downloaded form via email, you must have the full version of Adobe Acrobat, since the file must be saved in your local computer before you can email it.

4. Handwritten applications will not be accepted.

NOTE: You must have the Adobe Acrobat Reader Version 8.0 or higher on your computer in order to view PDF files. If you do not have this free program or your version needs to be upgraded, click on the icon below. Please upgrade to the most recent version of Adobe Acrobat Reader, which you will see on the right side of the downloads page. If you have difficulty launching the PDF in your web browser, please right-click on the link and save the file to your computer. Then open the file through Adobe Acrobat Reader rather than via your browser:


Once you have completed the PDF form, you can email or fax it to the person listed below. You can also print a copy to mail to the AANA CE Department.


Payment Form must accompany all applications. 


With the exception of the Group Nonprior Application, please note that the nonprior approval application fee has increased to $50.  Thank you.
