Target Audience- Continuing Education (CE) courses are “Provider-Directed Independent Study” as defined by the AANA, “self-paced learning activity developed for individual use”.   These CE’s are intended for Nurse Anesthetist’s practicing anesthesia looking to expand their knowledge.  Courses are presented as a group of articles in an e-Journal which can be accessed from any web-based browser.
