Nurse Anesthesia Program Curriculum

The curriculum for the nurse anesthesia program is based upon the requirements of the Council on Accreditation of Nurse Anesthesia Educational Programs. Students are admitted in May of each year and receive class work in Principles of Anesthesia Practice, Chemistry, Physics, Anatomy, Advanced Physiology and Pathophysiology, Advanced Pharmacology, Advanced Health Assessment, and Professional Aspects of Anesthesia.


Clinical experience is provided at member hospitals, where over 100,000 surgical procedures are performed annually in all specialty areas. Students are supervised and instructed by anesthesiologists and certified registered nurse anesthetists. Each hospital has appointed a clinical coordinator to help manage student clinical experiences. Special experiences include pediatrics and regional anesthesia.
