I am a relatively new RN (1 year in an ASC) who just took a new position in outpatient endo. Part of my job will be administering the mod sedation using fentanyl and versed and I am receiving training to do this.
I have heard NAPS being tossed around a bit. I don't know if it is something the center is considering, and truthfully I haven't yet researched the position of my state's BON.
The articles and position statements I have read thus far indicate a fair amount of polarity in opinion....GI docs seeming to approve of NAPS and CRNAs and anesthesiologists dead-set against.
Anyone out there have any experience with NAPS? Or just an opinion and a point of view for me to think about?
