Education by Track

Practice Leadership Track
The purpose of this track is to provide foundational and advanced skills and information that contribute to successful business and facility leadership.

Federal Political Director Track
The Federal Political Director track is intended for AANA Federal Political Directors and anyone interested in learning more about the AANA Federal Advocacy program. This track will teach important skills for building sustaining relationships with federal lawmakers and promoting the nurse anesthesia profession through effective advocacy techniques.

State Government Affairs Track

As CRNAs seek to implement full practice authority in the states, testifying effectively can be the difference between winning and losing. This track will provide a great learning opportunity and interactive, hands-on experience in testifying before legislators and regulators and responding to difficult questions.

State President-Elect Track

The purpose of the State President-Elect track is to enable participants to develop their leadership and governance skills to more effectively serve in an elected position for the board of directors and to provide an opportunity for networking and discussion with other state leaders in similar roles.

State Reimbursement Specialist Track

The State Reimbursement Specialist track is intended for both newly appointed and experienced SRSs and anyone interested in learning more about the SRS program. This track is an educational program devoted to reimbursement issues and professional network development, focusing on Medicare, Medicaid and commercial health plans, and on strategies for monitoring and effectively advocating for appropriate coverage of CRNA services in states.
