 AANA CE Applications


The CE Department is pleased to provide a web-based method to complete and submit AANA CE applications via the AANA CE Portal. This completely online process is the modernization of one that involved electronic PDFs, which are no longer available.  

If you are a company representative (Hospital, State Nurse Anesthetist Association, Accredited Program or other entity) wanting to apply for AANA Prior Approval, please contact continuingeducation@aana.com for your AANA web user credentials if you do not already have them. In your communication, please be sure to include your company name & address, your first and last name and contact phone number. Your inquiry will be addressed within 1 business day.

If you are a CRNA, and you want to complete a Non-Prior Approval Application, you may use your www.aana.com username and password to access the portal and complete and pay for the application fees using a major credit card. For assistance with your web username and password, please contact websupport@aana.com with your First and Last Name and AANA ID number. Your inquiry will be addressed within 1 business day.


AANA is a provider of ANCC credit but not an approver of ANCC credit. We are a provider and approver of AANA CE credit.
