  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
    • 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 timeframes regarding Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist Recognition?

    Recognition for Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists will be valid for 1-4 years, depending on the National Certification expiration date with NBCRNA. Once your North Carolina Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist Recognition application has been submitted and processed, the North Carolina Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist Recognition certificate will be emailed. Allow 2-4 weeks to process.

  3. How is the update of North Carolina Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist Recognition process handled?

    All Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists 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 North Carolina Board will send the Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist a notice to also update their North Carolina Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist Recognition and to provide their current National Certification number and new expiration date to the Board of Nursing.

    To update a current Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist Recognition, your certification must be within 60 days of expiring.

    A non-refundable administrative charge of $25.00 to cover internal processing costs must be submitted with the completed update of Recognition form.
