A Brief History of the Graduate Programs of Nurse Anesthesia
In 1947, a certificate program in nurse anesthesia was founded at Harris Hospital. The Harris Hospital School of Anesthesia affiliated with Texas Wesleyan College in 1982. At that time Texas Wesleyan awarded a Master of Health Science to students completing Phase I in the Harris Hospital Methodist Graduate Program of Nurse Anesthesia.
In 1986, Texas Wesleyan College assumed control of the Nurse Anesthesia Program. Harris Methodist Fort Worth was the first primary clinical site. St. Francis Regional Medical Center, Wichita, Kansas, became the second primary clinical site in 1989. Currently there are over 25 primary clinical sites in eleven states.
We invite you to explore the three programs that we offer.
