back ground check

  1. Who actually grants you your crna lic. ? Is it the state board in the state where you wish to practice or is it the AANA. Do they run more background checks on you or do they presume that if you have a valid RN lic. that you are in good standing in your state and therefore eligible to become a crna? The reason I am concerned is that I had an old issue addressed by the board of nursing in my state and was allowed to become a RN, I would just hate to have to go through that again. I will probable stay in the same state if I was to become a crna.

    All nursing licenses are granted by the state where you practice.

    I was told by the director of my program that the background check is a fairly new requirement. It is required before you begin crna school. If you need futhur information I can look it up in my orientation package, but I am almost certain that it is required by the AANA.
