Nurse Anesthesiology Resident Association


Welcome to the official website of the Nurse Anesthesiology Resident Association

We're so glad you stopped by.

There are currently 124 accredited Nurse Anesthesia Education Programs in the United States with 12 of those programs are apart of NARA!

Our website and organization seek to create an environment that fosters relationships between those at all levels of the nurse anesthesiology profession, from novice to expert. We also desire to get residents more engaged in our national organization, the AANA, promote positive change within our field, and provide service to our communities. 

If you would like to help NARA better serve our Nurse Anesthesiology Residents (NARs), please do not hesitate to click on the "Donations" tab and contact one of our members about ways you can contribute to our organization. If you would like to apply for one of our scholarships please click on the "Scholarships" tab.
