The Encore Story – 40 Years of Success!

Encore Symposiums, Inc. was founded in 1983 to provide 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 guarantee 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, Naples, Palm Springs, Hilton Head Island, Charleston, and more. Encore is proud to be the founder of the CPC Exam Review. The CPC Exam Review was introduced in Naples, FL in March of 2018, and now is offered in nine locations across the US.

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 at our three and four-day locations. The CPC Exam Review is available as a two-day weekend review and beginning in December of 2022, a three-half-day review providing more time to enjoy the destination.

We realize that the anesthesia provider's time is a precious commodity. Our pledge is to create the best educational experience and a memorable one.
