Who has this credential? Can you tell me about your expierence with the test[/Q
My company wanted me to take this test before I did any kind of anesthesia coding. We were taking on a group of CRNA's and nobody else here had any real experience of anesthesia coding so there was no one to ask. I took the CANPC and passed (just) first time. It was very tough because of my lack of experience. I think if I took it now after 2 years of coding anesthesia (among other things) it would obviously be much easier. Also, there was no study guide available at the time.
Like anything, if you know your subject you will pass. The test covers all aspects of anesthesia including sedation, MAC, pain management, anatomy, regulations, modifiers, supervising of CRNA's and much more.
