The NYSPANA Board is excited to share our new and improved website. Our website committee has been working for several months to create a website that is easy to navigate and contains current information. NYSPANA members and perianesthesia nurses across the state have access to evidence based-practice, resources, and events to elevate their practice.
This website was redesigned to help perianesthesia nurses find educational opportunities at local, state and national levels. It also celebrates the accomplishments of perianesthesia peers and the contributions that they have given to 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.

I would like to wish you all a happy belated Perianesthesia Nurses Awareness Week! I hope that each and everyone one had a wonderful week celebrating all that we have accomplished over the last year. Here in the Rochester/Buffalo area we held a conference on February 6th.
NYSPANA is 893 members strong as of January 31st. New York State has 794 perianesthesia certified nurses, 296 CAPA, 463 CPAN and 35 who are dual certified. Numerous others in our ranks hold certifications in other fields as well as advanced practice degrees.The NYSPANA board would like to applaud the dedication our members have shown to our specialty.
The NYSPANA board and districts have been working hard to provide educational opportunities to our members through our annual state conference and numerous district conferences and seminars offered throughout the year. This year we have applied for ASPAN’S Gold Leaf Award, along with the Shining Star Award for our component from ABPANC.
The board has also been working to redesign our website to help our members utilize the benefits of belonging to NYSPANA. A website committee consisting of four board members was formed in October 2015. The committee has been working diligently to redesign the NYSPANA website. The goal is to improve visibliity, connect to social media, and keep members informed. Look for the new website to be unveiled in the next few months.
The board will be meeting in March to discuss the bylaws and look for new officers for the following year. Please consider a greater role in our organization in the next year. We need your help to continue providing the educational opportunities and scholarships in the future either on the state level or district level. For more information on the opportunities, please contact me at: email@example.com.
NYPSANA is looking forward to a very productive year ahead.
Thank you of all you do!
