The Doctor of Nursing Anesthesia Practice program requires 36 months (nine semesters) of full-time study. Clinical experience begins in the third semester to allow students to integrate and apply concepts learned in the classroom.
Students begin clinical experience during the third semester. Clinical time and responsibilities gradually increase throughout the program.
Students benefit from a variety of clinical experiences at several clinical sites, all located within 25 miles of the university (many within walking distance). Experiences include a Level I trauma center, a Level III obstetric unit, one of the nation’s top pediatric hospitals, multiple outpatient surgery centers, and several community hospitals.
