All one has to do is become immersed in “The Global Voice for Nurse Anesthesia: International Federation of Nurse Anesthetists (1989-2021)” to know that the IFNA takes great pride in preserving and sharing its storied history.
Prior to the signing of its charter in 1989, IFNA was little more than a vision embraced by a small group of determined nurse anesthetists from 11 countries. Today, some 32 years later, IFNA is recognized as “The Global Voice for Nurse Anesthesia” for a significant reason—its ongoing efforts to promote, inspire, prepare, and encourage more than 100,000 nurse anesthetists caring for patients in 43 different countries around the world is essential to the health and wellbeing of the human race.
This comprehensive book tells of IFNA’s founding; the establishment of its vision, mission, goals, and objectives; and the creation of practice, education, and monitoring standards critical to the advancement of nurse anesthetists worldwide. The development of the highly successful Anesthesia Program Approval Process (APAP) is explored, formative events such as the World Congress for Nurse Anesthetists are relived, and the countless individuals who have devoted their time, energy, creativity, and resources to ensure IFNA’s durability are celebrated. Finally, an abundance of photos and artwork help bring IFNA’s story to life, completing a most memorable picture.
We hope you enjoy this entertaining journey through the history of the IFNA!
