The CarolinaEast Medical Center Anesthesia team works in a fast-paced, innovative environment allowing patient safety and comfort for all types of procedures.
The CRNAs of CarolinaEast are registered nurses with previous critical care nursing experience who have been educated at the Masters or Doctoral level. They maintain a North Carolina nursing license and certification from the National Board of Certification & Recertification for Nurse Anesthetists (NBCRNA).
CRNAs perform anesthesia for all populations of patients, for all types of procedures, including inpatient, outpatient, open heart and obstetrics. Care is provided in the main operating room, Electrophysiology Lab, Outpatient services, MRI suite, CT suite, Specials, Surgery Center and Endoscopy Center.
In addition to providing clinical care, the CRNAs are involved in educating future CRNAs for three doctoral level nurse anesthesia programs.
A clinical advancement program has recently been implemented with the intent of broadening professional knowledge and competencies. The program is designed to encourage CRNAs to assume accountability for their own practice, career development and enhancement of departmental practice and procedures.
