CRNA coming to Ontario

  1. Looks like from the Govt of Ontario website that they are establishing "nurse practioners- anesthesia" in ontario.

    U of T will be spearheading the program. My question is, will there be an equivalency process for U.S. CRNA's who want to come to Canada?

    That of course will be up to the College of Nurses of Ontario. My understanding is that there will not be CRNA's per se here but ACNP's with an anesthesia specialty. Nothing is very clear yet. If the past is any indication the CNO has accepted the US FNP for Primary Care NP's so they might just accept the US CRNA.
