Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist (CRNA) Program

Take your nursing career to the next level – the highest domain of nursing.  Begin a career in the challenging and exciting field of nurse anesthesia.  The Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist (CRNA) is a recognized, professional occupation continuing to become more and more important in a competitive, high-tech, and demanding medical field.  The demand for these professionals continues to grow, and so do the pay and benefits! 

Many practice settings are available to the CRNA.  Options include working in a team approach by joining a group of physicians and other CRNAs which provide anesthesia in several facilities, working solely with CRNAs in more rural settings, being a solo practitioner, or becoming a locum tenens (traveling) CRNA.
