Please Write NH Board of Nursing to Reverse "Nurse Anesthesiologist" Policy

April 10, 2019

Granite State physicians are urged to write the NH Board of Nursing requesting that they reverse their recently issued policy statement to allow CRNAs to advertise themselves as a "Nurse Anesthesiologist."  The Medical Society, Board of Medicine, American Medical Association, American Society of Anesthesiologists, NH Society of Anesthesiologists, along with nine NH state specialty organizations, have delivered letters to the NH BON to push back on this statement. We kindly ask that you consider doing this as well.

The ASA has developed an online form for you to submit letters directly to the NH BON. The letter is framed from the standpoint of an anesthesiologist, so please make edits as you see fit.

Should you have any questions or need further information, please contact Mike Padmore at michael.padmore@nhms.org or 603-224-1909.
