Welcome to our program website and thank you for taking the time to explore our educational offering!
Program faculty, as well as College of Nursing and Professional Disciplines faculty, are committed to providing you with excellent classroom and clinical instruction. Gaining admission to any Nurse Anesthesia program is a very competitive, time consuming process requiring a history of outstanding academic performance, clearly defined goals, and perseverance. Students admitted to this program are highly respected and valued for their knowledge base, experience, enthusiasm, and professional conduct both in the classroom and clinical settings.
In January 2011, the Council on Accreditation of Nurse Anesthesia Educational Programs granted the University of North Dakota the maximum ten-year accreditation, which attests to our compliance with rigorous academic standards. Historically, our graduates post outstanding scores on the national certification examination as well as receive very positive reviews from employers.
We are excited to offer our new 94 credit hour, 9 semester Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) Nurse Anesthesia curriculum. This program prepares graduates for the highest level of nursing practice by integrating courses in evidence-based practice, leadership, healthcare economics, collaboration, informatics, knowledge of systems, and healthcare policy with specialized nurse anesthesia practice education.
Traveling the road toward a career as a nurse anesthetist is both uniquely challenging and rewarding. It often entails reassessing current commitments, geographic relocations, and personal sacrifices. However, the opportunities available to you as a CRNA and the professional growth you will experience are unparalleled.
Please take time to explore and enjoy our program website. I am confident you will find the information and the associated links helpful as you carefully consider the merits of our program.
