Program Objectives

The program curriculum consists of an initial didactic component followed by the clinical component. The program integrates research, pathophysiology, pharmacology, health assessment, general principles of anesthesia, and anesthesia for surgical procedures for application in the clinical setting. During the program of study, students will have the opportunity to apply evidence-based practices through the development of anesthesia care plans and hands-on experience in the operating room.

Additionally, students will complete a capstone project that culminates with the completion of a scholarly work that demonstrates the ability to translate findings into practice, research, education, or administration applicable to nurse anesthesia practice. The dissemination of the final written work product may be in the form of a manuscript submitted for publication, a poster presented at a national meeting, design of innovative clinical practice model, or other effective means of dissemination.
