Florida Association of Nurse Anesthetists (FANA)

Founded in 1936, The Florida Association of Nurse Anesthetists (FANA) represents over 3,800 Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists (CRNAs) in Florida.  FANA advocates for our patients and members in legislative and governmental affairs and serves as a resource for CRNAs, the nursing and medical professions, hospitals, health care facilities, and others interested in anesthesia care.

CRNAs are specialty trained and educated professionals who have been providing surgical anesthesia and pain management services in a variety of clinical settings for more than 150 years. 

CRNAs provide comprehensive anesthesia care to patients before, during, and after surgical and obstetrical procedures and are the primary anesthesia professionals in rural and medically underserved areas. CRNAs practice in every setting in which anesthesia is administered, including traditional hospital and obstetrical surgical suites, interventional pain managements, critical care units, and ambulatory surgical centers.
