The Nurse Anesthesia (NA) program is designed to prepare nurses for advanced practice in administering anesthetics to patients across the life span wherever anesthesia is delivered, including in hospital surgical suites, ambulatory surgical centers, the offices of dentists and plastic surgeons, rural settings and the military.
The NA curriculum is an integration of doctor of nursing practice (DNP) core courses and nurse anesthesia specialty courses. This intensive educational program employs didactic learning, laboratory skills, human patient simulation and extensive clinical experiences. The NA program culminates with the completion of a scholarly final project. You can find detailed information about the NA program in the graduate studies bulletin.
Applications open May 1st to September 30th.
