Our organization’s expertise ranges from governmental practice issues, workplace issues, continuing education, public relations, patient advocacy, and other matters related to the promotion of the nurse anesthesia profession. This website is developed and maintained to keep the members and friends of ALANA informed on issues and opportunities of importance in our rapidly changing health care environment.

Our Mission — Advancing quality anesthesia care, serving our members, promoting the nurse anesthesia profession.

Our Vision — To be recognized leaders in anesthesia care, who:

A Letter from Our President

 

To our members, first I thank you for being a member. Next, I ask that you check this website often so that you can stay up-to-date on the latest news that affects your profession. Links to matters of urgency and importance will be posted in the information tab for members on the opening page. Contact information for your Board of Directors is located in the drop down menu along with useful information about your state association meetings. Registration and payment for meetings can be completed online for your convenience. We currently offer great rates to early registers, so please check back with us often.

Your ALA-CRNA PAC tab was added for special events, recurrent donations, and one time donations. We ask that you remember your commitment to PAC any time your credit card information is changed. This is one way to help make sure your voice is heard. If you are not a member we ask you consider joining us. On this web site there is a link to the AANA website where you can begin supporting the association that works so hard to represent CRNAs. Just remember, all of your important ALANA information is just a click away, whether you are on your PC or mobile device.

To our patients, we have added an area just for you! Hopefully you will find our site filled with information that will help you understand what anesthesia is all about and how CRNA’s fit into that role. There is even a place where you can ask an anesthesia professional a question!

To our students or those interested in a career as a nurse anesthetist, we have added an area for you too. Hopefully you will find the answers to many of your questions about your career as a CRNA. This includes the current educational requirements. You are the future of our profession and we will do our best to help you in any way we can.

As your President of the ALANA for the 2018 – 2019 term, it is my pleasure to welcome all to the AlabamaCRNA.org website. If I, or your great Board of Directors, can be of assistance to you, do not hesitate to ask. We are here for you!

Very Respectfully,

Ray Dunn, MNA, CRNA, USN, Ret.

President
