Nurse Anesthesia - Doctor of Nursing Practice
The College of Nursing and Professional Disciplines Nurse Anesthesia Program is excited to announce our newest degree program – the post baccalaureate Doctor of Nurse Practice! The first Nurse Anesthesia cohort for this program was admitted for the Fall 2018 semester.
The Council on Accreditation of Nurse Anesthesia Educational Programs (COA) recently approved our 97 credit hour, 9 semester curriculum that leads to a Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) degree from the University of North Dakota. 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.
Students in the Nurse Anesthesia Program begin in August of each year and continue for 36 consecutive months. Coursework in this program utilizes face-to-face, online, and clinical practicum learning. Clinical experiences in anesthesia practice are provided at several urban and rural healthcare facilities. The clinical experiences require travel within the states of North Dakota and Minnesota.
Upon completion of all academic and clinical requirements, students graduate with a Doctor of Nursing Practice degree. Students will then be eligible to sit for the National Certification Examination (NCE), administered by the National Board on Certification and Recertification of Nurse Anesthetists (NBCRNA). After the student is successful at passing the NCE, the student will be certified as a Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist (CRNA) and will be eligible to apply for state licensure.
Application Deadline is September 1
