CRNAs must obtain a Master's or Doctorate degree from a Nurse Anesthesia accredited program and pass a national CRNA certification examination. CRNAs are licensed by the Ohio Board of Nursing as APRNs. They must practice in supervision with a physician, dentist, or podiatrist when providing direct patient care. When administering anesthesia, the CRNA must be in the immediate presence of the physician, dentist, or podiatrist, according to section 4723.01(M) of the Ohio Revised Code.
