Nurse Anesthesiology Resident Association


Welcome to the official website of the Nurse Anesthesiology Resident Association! 

This is a non-profit organization entirely run by Resident Registered Nurse Anesthesia (RRNAs). Our three primary objectives are: bringing together Resident Registered Nurse Anesthesia (RRNAs) from different schools and creating a common basis; bridging the gap between RRNA and CRNA; and, maintaining a networking relationship with the American Association of Nurse Anesthesiology. 

The organization started in the New England/Northeast region and has recently changed its name to encourage other nurse anesthesia residents to join. The organization welcomes RRNAs from all 124 nurse anesthesia programs in the United States to participate in our quarterly meetings and support our mission. 

If you would like to help NARA better serve our Resident Registered Nurse Anesthesia, please do not hesitate to click on the "Donations" tab. You may also contact one of our members about ways you can contribute to our organization. If you would like to apply for our scholarships, please visit the "Scholarships" tab. 

If you are a nurse anesthesia resident who would like to get involved, meet motivated colleagues, and explore new opportunities, please contact or one of our members!
