As a CRNA, staying up-to-date with the latest anesthesia CEU requirements can be challenging, but thanks to the Core Anesthesia App, it just got a whole lot easier!
Our team always gets a little excited when we discover a new way to knock out continuing education credits. First, we get bored using the same program over and over again. Secondly, we’re always looking for an easier way to collect credits.
This easy-to-use app is perfect for busy CRNAs who want to earn CEU credits on the go. We’ll take a look at the features of this app and explain how it can help you stay up-to-date with your anesthesia education.
Appearance and Usability
First of all, let’s talk about the appearance and usability of the Core Anesthesia App. The app has a clean-looking appearance that is easy on the eyes, making it easy to navigate and use. Designed to be user-friendly, with a straightforward layout that makes it easy to find the information you need.
As with all newly released apps, there are always some technical bugs that pop up. I wasn’t too surprised when I came across a couple. They didn’t take away from the experience, and I quickly forgot about them once I moved on.
Talking with the team over at Core Anesthesia, I shared some of the glitches that surfaced. They were appreciative of the feedback and were quickly working on fixes for a better user experience. It’s great to see a responsive group readily available to help fix any issues you might encounter.
Podcasts and Episode Guide
One of the best features of the Core Anesthesia CEU App is that you can listen to podcasts or read episode guides on the go. This is perfect for busy CRNAs who don’t have time to sit down and read an entire lesson. I listened to the episodes while commuting to work, riding my bike, and one time while cooking dinner.
Tanner and Cole, CRNAs who host the podcast, do a great job presenting the material. You can tell they are well-versed in the subject matter and relay it in an easy-to-understand format.
Conversely, if you can’t listen to the podcast, you can pull up the Episode Guide. This written “Cliff Note” version highlights the core topics of the podcast. Twice I used the Episode Guide: once in Pre-op while waiting for a surgeon to show up. The other time in the doctor’s office lobby while waiting for my appointment.
Surprisingly, both times were spent waiting for a doctor. Hmmm…
The Core Anesthesia App offers a great test-taking experience. Each course topic has a 5-question quiz at the end. They are multiple-choice, and if you get stumped, take advantage of their “View Course Document”. This allows you to read through the material and come up with the right answer.
If you fail a quiz, like I did, you have two more chances to take it. Minimum passing grade is 80%.
I passed it easily on the second chance.
Certificates and Class A Credits
Once you’ve successfully complete a test, all that is left to do is to fill out the mandatory course survey. It takes under a minute to complete. Hit the “Submit” button and a certificate will be automatically generated.
You can access each certificate in your profile. The profile page is easy to navigate, really cool-looking and a great way to view and track your progress.
If you are an active member of the AANA, the Core Anesthesia App will report your earned credits to the AANA. They submit credits to the AANA on a monthly basis, so you can be sure that your credits will be reported in a timely manner.
Core Anesthesia App Pricing
The Core Anesthesia CEU App offers subscription plans and yearly purchase options. The app is free to download with lots of free content to use!
The CRNA monthly subscription costs $29.99, while the yearly subscription is priced at $299.99. For SRNAs, the yearly subscription costs $48.99, and the monthly subscription is just $4.99. That’s equivalent to a cup of coffee per month, making it a great deal for students looking to save money.
Overall, it offers a competitive price point compared to other CRNA CEU programs available in the market.
The Core Anesthesia CE App is an invaluable tool for busy CRNAs and SRNAs looking to fulfill their continuing education requirements. With its user-friendly interface, engaging Podcast episodes, helpful Episode Guides, and efficient test-taking experience, it simplifies the process of earning CEU credits.
The app’s affordable subscription plans and seamless integration with the AANA make it an attractive option compared to other CEU programs on the market. Give it a try, and you’ll find that staying up-to-date with your anesthesia education has never been easier or more enjoyable.
