Program Design

Program Design

The first 12-months of this 36-month program begins with building a foundational knowledge in the sciences. Academic knowledge is then integrated with clinical experiences during the last 24-months through completion of anesthesia courses, simulation, and clinical training. Experienced anesthesia providers guide student learning in every setting. The low student to faculty ratio promotes student success in the clinical and classroom setting. Like clinical progression, Doctoral coursework progresses throughout the program culminating in a scholarly project. These exceptional experiences will prepare you in planning and managing general and regional anesthetic care for patients across the lifespan.

Simulation

Simulation

Students spend over 50 hours in simulation. The human patient simulator provides opportunities for students and clinicians to experience critical anesthesia events that rarely occur in clinical practice. Our program is unique in that it includes a comprehensive course on anesthesia crisis resources management (ACRM).

In addition to high-fidelity simulation, nurse anesthesia students utilize a variety of training modules to learn complex and invasive procedures such as advanced airway devices, central lines, spinals, epidurals, peripheral nerve blocks, ultrasound, and more.
