About Encore Symposiums
CRNA Conferences / Seminars for Class A CE Credits
The Encore Story – Over 35 Years of Success!
Encore Symposiums, Inc. was founded in 1983 with the focus of providing continuing education to anesthesia providers in unique and exciting destinations. Each Encore Symposium is designed to educate and support the continuing education of the nurse anesthetist. The core faculty consists of primarily CRNAs whose focus is the development and advancement of anesthesia knowledge and practice in the nurse anesthesia profession. Encore Symposiums consistently include a well-balanced schedule of topics strategically aligned with the NBCRNA Core Modules to ensure that the anesthesia provider will be well prepared for the CPC examination process. Encore Symposiums guarantees the anesthesia provider that all lectures meet the new required CPC Class A requirements as set forth by the NBCRNA.
Through the years, we have developed a predominantly CRNA faculty that is dedicated to sharing knowledge directly pertaining to the challenges facing nurse anesthesia practice today. Presentations are pertinent, up-to-date, applicable to clinical anesthesia practice, and focused on an all CRNA audience.
Encore has earned and continues to live up to its name… Leading the way as a pioneer in discovering the most sought-after destinations such as Sedona, Bar Harbor, Cape Cod, Newport, Naples, Palm Springs, and more. Encore is proud to be the first to offer national parks as a destination for anesthesia seminars.
Attendees enjoy a well-planned itinerary conducive to learning that also allows the opportunity for sightseeing, adventure, and relaxation. When you attend an Encore Symposium, you are guaranteed ample time to visit and experience the location.
We realize that the anesthesia provider's time is a precious commodity. Our pledge is to create the best educational experience along with a memorable one.
Encore Symposiums has Expanded its Offerings!
Encore is continually enhancing CRNA educational opportunities and has added a LIVE Virtual learning component to our in-person conferences. All future symposiums will offer a virtual option, with the exception of our CPC Exam Reviews, which provide an unparalleled, dynamic, and engaging learning experience. Unlike recorded webinars, Encore's Interactive LIVE Virtual Conferences offer a unique opportunity to engage with the faculty and audience.
CPC Exam Ready?
As the nurse anesthetists' needs have changed, Encore has led the way ensuring that the educational sessions are CPC Module and Examination focused. Encore Symposiums designs each program schedule with the focus of integrating lecture relevancy to the four CORE Modules and the future NBCRNA/CPC Exam.
The NBCRNA recertification cycle is in full swing and Encore Symposiums is leading the way in preparing you for the NBCRNA/CPC Exam. We are proud to be a pioneer, introducing the Encore CPC Review Course in multiple destinations!
Enjoy this dynamic and lively prep course that will lead you to a successful CPC exam! On day one, receive the latest NBCRNA / CPC Update provided by an NBCRNA representative. On day two, enjoy a fun-filled interactive bonus hour "CPC Jeopardy: Making it Across the Finish Line Safely". Team up with your colleagues and reflect on the knowledge gained during a relaxing weekend!
Utilizing interactive technology, this two-day review is offered prior to our four-day conferences. This engaging, collaborative course offers a warm and low-stress learning environment. The CPC review course is strategically designed to align with the learning objectives of the NBCRNA Core Modules; Airway Management, Applied Clinical Pharmacology, Human Physiology/Pathophysiology, and Anesthesia Equipment & Technology. The review course will enable the learner to successfully prepare to meet the challenges of the CPC Exam from the novice to the seasoned anesthesia provider.

2021 Update: Interactive LIVE Virtual Conference Options
Encore Symposiums will kick-off the new year with a live-streamed, weekend Pharmacology CPC Review. This course was scheduled to be held in New Orleans; however, due to the pandemic, this two-day afternoon weekend program will be offered virtually via the ZOOM platform. Participants will be able to kick-back, relax, and enjoy this 8-hour interactive refresher course in the comfort of their home, or anywhere they choose! For our attendees' convenience, the conference will be held Saturday and Sunday, January 30-31, 1:00-5:00 p.m. (CST).
Encore's next annual 2021 conference, which was scheduled during President's Week in Palm Springs, CA, will be held virtually due to the coronavirus. More details
Encore Symposiums is closely monitoring this evolving and very fluid situation surrounding the COVID-19 pandemic to evaluate its impact on the November 2020 conferences. We are adhering to the recommendations by the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), the World Health Organization (WHO), and state departments.
Every effort will be made to provide a safe environment for our attendees at our upcoming 2021 conferences. Social distancing will be adhered to throughout the hotel/resort properties. All conferences will have limited attendance due to social gathering restrictions. Each attendee will be seated at a 6-foot table. Hand sanitizers, tissues, disposable face masks, and individual bottled waters will be distributed at each conference. We look forward to getting back to business as usual, where CRNAs can earn Class A CE Credits in a safe classroom setting.
We believe an optimal educational experience can be achieved when healthcare providers meet together, share their professional experiences to bring positive energy, enhance knowledge, and ultimately improve patient care.
In the event conditions prohibit an in-person conference, we will offer live virtual conferencing to provide an opportunity for registered participants to earn Class A CE Credits.
