  1. Who should complete the form?

    Beginning July 1, 2003, the North Carolina Board of Nursing initiated the process for verifying certification of nurse anesthetists practicing in North Carolina. The process affects the following groups or individuals:

    • Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists practicing in North Carolina - Click here for more detailed information regarding CRNAs.
    • Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists endorsing as registered nurses into North Carolina
    • Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists licensed by another compact state practicing in North Carolina under the "multi-state privilege to practice terms of the Nurse Licensure Compact".
  2. What information should I know about time frames regarding CRNA recognition?

    Recognition for CRNAs will be valid for 1-4 years, depending on the national certification expiration date with NBCRNA. Once your NC CRNA recognition application has been submitted and processed, the NC CRNA recognition certificate will be emailed. Please allow 2-4 weeks to process.

  3. How is the update of NC CRNA recognition process handled?

    All CRNAs are expected to recertify their NBCRNA national certification on a cycle determined by NBCRNA. Approximately 60 days prior to expiration of the national certification, the NC Board will send the CRNA a notice to also update their NC CRNA recognition and to provide their current national certification number and new expiration date to the Board of Nursing.

    To update a current CRNA recognition, your certification must be within 60 days of expiring.

    A non-refundable administrative charge of $25 to cover internal processing costs must be submitted with the completed update of recognition form.
