Can a CRNA provide ketamine for pain management or psychiatric disorders?

As with any other treatment, the role and scope of practice of a CRNA depends largely on their competencies. Every CRNA also has a duty to provide safe care to their patients. Under certain circumstances, and pursuant to a delegating provider's order, ketamine infusion therapy can be appropriate. AANA provides detailed guidance on ketamine infusion therapy at this link. You can also contact the Board of Nursing for specific information related to your practice.
