IFNA Standards

IFNA developed its first set of standards in 1991. The purpose of IFNA’s Standards and Code of Ethics is to acknowledge the profession’s acceptance of the responsibility and trust conferred upon it by society and to recognize the international obligation inherent in that trust. The actual standards on education for preparing nurse anesthetists, standards of practice, monitoring, and code of ethics are written to accommodate the major variance in the scope of nurse anesthesia practice worldwide.
