Frequently asked questions about the Core Modules

Does the AANA’s revised and redesigned (new) Core Modules Bundle meet the requirements for me as a CRNA in my SECOND 4-year cycle of the CPC program?

  • Yes! During your first 4-year cycle, Core Modules were optional. However, the Core Modules will be mandatory for your second 4-year cycle which begins in 2020 or 2021, depending on your certification date.

Newly licensed CRNAs who earn their initial certification on or after 1/1/2020 will be required to complete Core Modules every four years, beginning with their first 4-year cycle of the CPC Program. 

Can CRNAs who have NOT started their SECOND 4-year cycle begin using the Core Modules NOW?

  • You can purchase the new Core Modules Bundle now, and even go through the modules if you would like, but you cannot complete the modules (take and pass the test) until you are in your second 4-year cycle. The date that the credit is earned is what counts.

Can I receive Class A Credits with the new Core Modules Bundle?

  • Once the Core Modules become active in fall 2020 you will be eligible for up to 14 Class A credits which will be applied to your 4-year cycle after you take the test.

Can I purchase the new Core Modules Bundle if I still have another year before starting my second 4-year cycle (2021)?

  • The new Core Modules fulfill the CPC Program’s 2020 AND 2021 Core Modules requirement, so you can purchase now to receive the savings even though you won’t begin using the modules until 2021.

Definition of CPC Core Modules

The NBCRNA defines Core Modules as specialized Class A credit “CE programs that address the four areas of anesthesia practice which apply to all CRNAs, regardless of practice focus: Airway Management; Applied Clinical Pharmacology; Human Physiology and Pathophysiology; and Anesthesia Equipment and Technology.” The Class A credits earned through completing Core Modules also count toward a CRNA’s Class A credit requirement.
