Who We Are
In Idaho, more than 300 Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists (CRNAs) provide cost-effective, accessible, safe, evidence-based, and collaborative anesthesia care, including chronic pain management. CRNAs in Idaho work in every practice environment in which anesthesia care is delivered, including hospitals, ambulatory surgery centers, physician and dentist offices, and forward-deployed surgical teams. CRNAs live, work, and recreate in every county of the Gem State.
What We Do
Each year, IDANA holds a Spring and Fall Conference to provide an opportunity for Idaho CRNAs to learn from experts across the country.
IDANA also advocates on behalf of its members to ensure that Idaho remains a great place to practice.
Hello Colleagues and Friends,
On May 11, 2019 the ALS Evergreen Chapter will be hosting the first annual Treasure Valley Tour de'Funk bicycle ride. This ride is to honor Darren Funk, a CRNA who was diagnosed with ALS in July of 2012. Darren practiced anesthesia in our community for 14 years before the progression of ALS made it impossible for him to keep working. Having to step away from the practice of anesthesia is only one of many gratifying life experiences Darren has had to surrender to this unforgiving disease, but he has contested ALS with his will and his wisdom and continues to persevere in the face of this disease every day. I invite you to make a donation on behalf of Darren for his service to our community, our profession and to honor his battle with ALS. Or better yet, become a sponsor with a gift of $500 or more! Be sure to put the date on your calendar and plan to attend and participate. Make a donation or register here.
Tonia Nicholson, CRNA
