The Doctorate of Nurse Anesthesia Practice Program provides Master’s level prepared Nurse Anesthetists with advanced studies that leads to a Practice Doctoral Degree. The program is designed to provide scientific enhancement of the Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist’s (CRNA) current knowledge and to develop administrative skills in both management and/ or nurse anesthesia education. The program provides advanced studies in the interrelationships of Pathophysiology, Biochemistry and Pharmacology, study of management theory, educational administration and an advanced research project. The program is designed to provide students the opportunity to complete the 38-45 credit hour programs on a part-time basis in three years or two years as a full-time student.
The program builds upon the scientific and leadership knowledge and skills that the student gained during their Master’s Degree nurse anesthesia education as well as from their professional practice experience gained as a nurse anesthetist. The successful student will develop advanced, in-depth scientific knowledge concerning the disease processes and treatment modalities and strengthen the leadership, administrative and management skills beyond that gained at the Master’s level.
Two foci are offered in the program, and students may choose to complete one or both:
