Kristen Brady, CRNA
Back to Basics Course

“I used APEX while I was a student and as a CRNA. The information is easy to access from my phone, tablet, and computer. I have even completed credits while on a plane! The content is explained in a way that keeps me interested (I especially love the flash cards). It was a seamless process to obtain CEUs. I highly recommend this product to CRNAs who like to go at their own pace to earn credits from anywhere.”

William Howell, CRNA
Back to Basics Course

“Many of my CRNA staff were worried about how they were going to get the continuing education they needed in order to pass the new recertification exam. They felt the current offerings at most of the meetings they attended had not addressed the specific categories we will be tested on. APEX has stepped in where the traditional meetings have failed. They offer a one-stop experience for all of our educational requirements that address our needs and at a great price.”

William Rawleigh, CRNA
Back To Basics Course

“My name is Willima Rawleigh CRNA. I used APEX as a student, and I’m continuing my career I’m using them again. For me, the ease of getting to the tutorials, the lessons, and the fact that I prefer to read from a screen makes this the perfect product for me and others like me. I truly recommend this to everyone!!!! Wouldn’t have passed my boards without them!!!”

Brigette Vyborny, CRNA
Back To Basics Course

“APEX is awesome! This program uses current data and relevant topics to keep CRNAs up-to-date and practicing with the most recent evidence-based material. The website is stream-lined and easy to navigate. Plus I love that I can access the material on my smartphone! Great program!”

Todd Landis, CRNA
Back To Basics Course

“APEX Anesthesia Review provides the perfect combination of clinical information, ease of accessibility, and cost effectiveness. It is a wonderful tool allowing CRNA’s to both acquire CEs and have the ability to log in anytime to review workbooks/flashcards to stay up to date on current practice.  I have found a site which I plan on using for many years to come.”
