We hope you will visit our New York State PeriAnesthsia Nurses Association (NYSPANA) website often to keep informed on perianesthesia nursing events, accomplishments, and news. Our website committee is committed to create a website that is easy to navigate and contains current information. NYSPANA members and perianesthesia nurses across the state can access the website to share evidence based-practice, obtain resources, and attend events to elevate their practice.
The website was redesigned to engage perianesthesia nurses in educational opportunities at local, state and national levels. Member recognition of achievements, awards, and presentations will be featured on our website to promote our specialty.
If you have news to highlight…Please contact the NYSPANA website committee with district news, achievements, community service, best practices, and educational opportunities. We hope you will stay connected with NYSPANA! Follow us on Facebook.
