At its January, June, and October 2020 meetings, the Council on Accreditation of Nurse Anesthesia Educational Programs (COA) reviewed proposed revisions to its Standards, policies and procedures from the joint COA/AANA Full Scope of Practice Competency Task Force (FSOPCTF) and the COA's Standards Revision Subcommittee.  Several of these proposed revisions were previously released to the COA's community of interest for comment in September 2020.

The COA is now conducting an additional Call for Comments from the community of interest in order to encourage broader participation in the Standards revision process, and requests that any member of the community of interest who did not participate in the September Call for Comments please provide their feedback. If you have previously provided comments on these proposed revisions, the COA appreciates your input but asks that you do not complete the survey again.

The survey will take approximately 20 minutes to complete. Please note, the survey can be saved. After clicking “Save”, a page will appear with a new link to access the saved survey.  All feedback will be thoroughly reviewed and carefully considered by the COA in finalizing the revisions.
