CRNA Continuing Education

We help busy CRNAs get everything they need for the CPC Program in one place.

CPC Core Modules | Back to Basics | CRNA Updates | All-Inclusive Bundle

What do you need for the NBCRNA CPC Program?

The CPC Program is designed to support lifelong learning for CRNAs.

By keeping up with current practice trends and refreshing the basics, you’ll be empowered to provide the highest quality care for your patients.

To satisfy your CPC requirements, you must complete Class A credits, Class B credits, CPC Assessment, and Core Modules.

If the CPC Program feels time consuming, you’re not alone. But don’t worry, we’re here to help.

As CRNAs ourselves, we understand the challenge of fitting the CPC Program into your busy schedule.

APEX makes it easy with convenient, engaging, and easy-to-use online courses that fit your lifestyle.

Conveniently learn anywhere, anytime on desktop or mobile.

No stress post-tests with three attempts to pass.

Take your post-tests open-book.

We report credits for active AANA members.

Kristen Brady, CRNA

"The information is easy to access, and the content is explained in a way that keeps me interested. It was a seamless process to obtain CE credits."

William Howell, CRNA

"The information presented was not only relevant, but the "myth buster" sections that look at old practice vs. the latest research were extremely useful."

Brigette Vyborny, CRNA

"APEX uses current data and relevant topics to keep CRNAs up-to-date. The website is streamlined and easy to navigate."

Have questions?

We have you covered.

Is APEX Anesthesia CRNA-owned and operated?

Yes! APEX is owned and operated by CRNAs who care about other CRNAs.

We’ve helped thousands of CRNAs with continuing education. We can help you too.

Will APEX report my credits to the AANA?

We report credits for active AANA members on normal business days Monday – Friday.

If you’re not an AANA member, you can print your credit transcript to submit to the NBCRNA.

Can I complete the same CE course more than once?

Yes! You can repeat any course whenever we receive a new AANA approval number for that course.

  • We receive new AANA approval numbers for our courses every several years.
  • So long as you complete the course under a different AANA number, you can complete the course again for Class A credits.

Can I renew or extend access to a CRNA course?

We understand that sometimes life gets in the way. If you need extra time to earn your credits, contact us, and we’ll gladly extend your course access.

If you’d like to enroll in a course that you used previously (to earn credits again), email us at info@apexanesthesia.com so we can re-enroll you into a course.

What are the software and hardware requirements to use APEX?

You can access APEX from your computer, tablet, and smartphone.

Since APEX lives on a server, all you need is an internet connection and a compatible browser. You can start on one device and pick up where you left off on another device.

Browsers we support:

  • Chrome
  • Safari
  • Firefox
  • Edge

Devices we support:

  • Apple
  • Android
  • Windows

APEX cannot be used on e-readers or Kindle Fire. Additionally, we don’t fully support Android LG devices.

We do not support screen readers.

Does Back to Basics include the CPC Core Modules?

No. Back to Basics and CPC Core Modules are two separate courses with different learning objectives.

You can sign up for each separately or get both courses (with a discount) in our All-Inclusive Bundle, which includes everything you need for your entire 4-year CPC Program.

Do you offer group discounts?

Yes! We’d be happy to provide a discount for your group of students or CRNAs.

Join hundreds of universities, anesthesia practices, and groups of individuals who’ve saved money by enrolling as a group.

Tell us more about your group, and we’ll be in touch within 1 business day.

What is your refund policy?

As a CRNA-owned and operated company, we want to provide you with a world-class experience every step of the way.

While thousands of students and CRNAs choose APEX for board review and continuing education, what if you decide it isn’t for you?

Email us within three days of your enrollment, and we’ll give you a full refund.

Because of the nature of digital courses, we do not offer refunds (full or partial) beyond three days of your purchase.

  • If you’re a CRNA, you must request your refund BEFORE earning credits (you earn credits by taking a post-test).
  • If you’re a student who failed the NCE, then review our student guarantee for our refund policy.
