January 2021 Legislative Update

NYSANA Members:

I have an important legislative update to share as it relates to Governor Cuomo’s Executive Order 202.91, which temporarily waives supervision requirements for CRNAs. The current order is now extended through February 22, 2021. We thank Governor Cuomo again for recognizing CRNAs and the significant contributions we are making on the frontlines during the COVID-19 pandemic.

Additionally, we are hard at work on a new bill to bring before our legislators this year that looks to redefine the role of CRNAs as APRNs. We will keep you informed on its status.

What wonderful news to receive during CRNA Week! I thank you for your ongoing advocacy and participation in our legislative efforts. Together, we can advance our profession in New York state.


Yana Krmic
President, NYSANA
