What will I learn?

The Nurse Anesthesia track prepares students as expert clinicians for every stage and in every setting in which anesthesia is delivered to patients. Because nurse anesthetists are responsible for direct patient care, students gain hands-on experience in a variety of regional (neuraxial and peripheral blocks) and general anesthesia techniques under the supervision of CRNA and M.D. faculty. In addition to "routine" surgical cases, nurse anesthesia students enhance their preparation by participating in trauma, major burn, and high-risk obstetrical cases. Upon graduation, students are eligible to sit for the certification examination administered by the Council on Certification of Nurse Anesthetists. Successful completion of this examination allows the new graduate to practice as a nurse anesthetist in all patient care settings. The DNP Nurse Anesthesia track requires 75 credits and a completion of a DNP Project.
