Our History  
The Peri-Anesthesia Nurses of Alberta (PANA) interest group originally began in 1989-1990, and covered the entire province. With the majority of members living in either the Edmonton or Calgary area,  the interest group divided into 2 subgroups:

  • Northern Alberta Chapter (NAC) consists of the area Red Deer and north
