Department Description

The Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists (CRNAs) at the University of California, San Francisco are integral to nearly every aspect of the perioperative care at UCSF. While CRNAs licensure affords them the same independent practicing rights as their MD colleagues, the CRNAs at UCSF work collaboratively with UCSF’s Anesthesiologists to form an Anesthesia Care Team. UCSF CRNAs are licensed, registered, advanced-practice nurses whom, after obtaining experience as a Critical Care Nurse, completed a post-graduate master’s or doctoral degree focusing on anesthesia practice. We provide anesthesia services at all the UCSF medical center campuses to a variety of patients across the life span. Additionally, UCSF CRNAs provide a positive learning experience for those students completing clinical rotations from the Samuel Merritt University’s, nurse anesthetist program.
