Doctor of Nursing Practice (Nurse Anesthetist)
A nurse anesthetist is a registered nurse who has acquired advanced education to administer anesthesia. You'll be responsible for planning and administering the anesthetic, monitoring every aspect of the patient’s well-being, and advocating for the patient during the surgery. We have improved the program by upgrading the degree to a Doctor of Nursing Practice.
Upon graduation, you'll be eligible for certification as a certified registered nurse anesthetist CRNA by the National Board on Certification and Recertification of Nurse Anesthetists (NBCRNA). We're accredited by the Council on Accreditation of Nurse Anesthesia Educational Programs and the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education*.
