Wisconsin Association of Nurse Anesthetists

Registered Principal Details

Business Or Interest:
CRNA's are advanced-practice nurses certified to administer anesthesia.

Lobbying Interests:
CRNA's are advanced-practice nurses certified to administer anesthesia in settings ranging from medical offices to hospital surgical units. In Wisconsin we also have authority to independently prescribe medication used within the scope of our practice. We believe the practice of anesthesia is a recognized specialty within both the nursing and medical professions. As a group we are interested in maintaining this setting by Wisconsin rules and regulations in health and health financing, along with insurance and tort reform.
