BILL NUMBER: S3288

TITLE OF BILL :
An act to amend the education law, in relation to the profession of
nurse anesthesia


PURPOSE OR GENERAL IDEA OF BILL :
This act codifies the profession of nurse anesthesia as a specialty of
the profession of nursing.

SUMMARY OF SPECIFIC PROVISIONS :
Amends section 6902 of the education law by adding a new subdivision 4
which sets ,out the definition of certified registered nurse
anesthetists, and adds section 6911 regarding the education and
training of nurse anesthetists.

JUSTIFICATION :
Currently, New York State law does not codify the practice of nurse
anesthesia. Instead, the scope of this practice has been defined
through educational requirements and Health Department regulations.

Existing requirements for training, education, and certification of
certified register nurse anesthetists (CRNAs) have resulted in high
quality, professional care by CRNAs. Statutory codification would
resolve problems relating to liability, supervision, and authority to
administer anesthesia.

This legislation was developed with the support of the New York state
Association of Nurse Anesthetists.
