Nurse Anesthesia Practice: Entry Into Practice, DNAP

Program Overview

The Doctor of Nurse Anesthesia Practice: Entry Into Practice program graduate will possess advanced competencies for nurse anesthesia practice, faculty, and leadership roles in nurse anesthesia. The program integrates didactic, simulation, and clinical experiences that allow you to study the full scope of Nurse Anesthesia Practice.

The curriculum focuses on preparing registered nurses with a bachelor's degree to become Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists (CRNA). BSN graduates can earn their DNAP degree in as few as three years.

Upon completion of the Doctor of Nurse Anesthesia Practice: Entry into Practice program, graduates who fulfill all program requirements will be eligible to sit for the National Certification Exam through the National Board of Certification and Recertification for Nurse Anesthetists (NBCRNA) and upon passing the exam, will become a Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist.

Program Objectives

The program curriculum consists of an initial didactic component followed by the clinical component. The program integrates research, pathophysiology, pharmacology, health assessment, general principles of anesthesia, and anesthesia for surgical procedures for application in the clinical setting. During the program of study, students will have the opportunity to apply evidence-based practices through the development of anesthesia care plans and hands-on experience in the operating room.

Additionally, students will complete a capstone project that culminates with the completion of a scholarly work that demonstrates the ability to translate findings into practice, research, education, or administration applicable to nurse anesthesia practice. The dissemination of the final written work product may be in the form of a manuscript submitted for publication, a poster presented at a national meeting, design of innovative clinical practice model, or other effective means of dissemination.
