POLICY

 

If official governmental or non-governmental standards for nurse anesthesia education are equivalent to or exceed IFNA's Education Standards, an individual program may be deemed to have met the requirements for IFNA's Level #3 Accreditation. A nurse anesthesia program with Deemed Accreditation Status will have all the privileges of an accredited program. Title of award: Level #3 IFNA Accreditation.

 

Criteria that the IFNA Education Committee reviews in considering a program seeking Level #3 Accreditation through the Deemed Accreditation Status option include the following:

 

  • Confirmation that the applicant program meets eligibility requirements for IFNA Level #3 Accreditation.

 

  • A comparison (crosswalk) of the official education standards, under which the applicant program operates, are found to be at least equivalent to IFNA's Education Standards.

 

  • A current copy of the official correspondence from the accrediting or quality assurance agency that confirms its approval of the nurse anesthesia program based on meeting the required standards.

 

  • Fees

 

  • Payment of a 1500 Swiss Francs application or renewal fee.

 

  • Ineligible programs qualify for a refund of 750 Swiss Francs

 

  • Ineligible programs will be offered Level #1 Registration

 

Programs that are ineligible for Deemed Accreditation Status, but qualify for Level #2 Recognition, will be encouraged to submit an application for Level #2
