Texas Wesleyan's nurse anesthesia program is highly competitive. Ability to meet the minimum admission requirements stated doesn't guarantee an interview or admittance to the program.
You will rank your clinical facility preferences when you apply, but sites are assigned on a competitive basis. Test scores, references and interview performance are taken into account during the application process, and the students who rank highest are assigned sites first.
Students of other nurse anesthesia programs are ineligible for admission.
