MTSA Offers Advanced Physiologic Foundations Class


A new class entitled “Advanced Physiologic Foundations for Nursing Practice” will be taught by MTSA Faculty member Laurence (Larry) Lancaster, EdD, announced MTSA Vice President/Dean/Program Administrator Mary Elizabeth “Ikey” DeVasher (‘69/’95) CRNA, PhD, APN.  

The class will be offered beginning September 6 – November 15, 2012 and will meet at MTSA on Thursdays from 8 am – Noon for a total of 44 hours of lecture and examination time.  The cost of the class is $2,500, and if application is made on or before June 30, 2012, there is a 10 percent discount.   Course prerequisites are undergraduate Human Anatomy and Physiology. 

Dr. Lancaster explained that “the course will discuss advanced human physiologic concepts at the system, organ, cellular, and subcellular levels, with the overall goal to enhance the learner’s foundation for nursing practice.” 

“This course may strengthen the learner’s application for a nurse anesthesia program,” says DeVasher.  “However, satisfactory completion of the course does not guarantee acceptance into a nurse anesthesia program as acceptance is based on a number of factors in addition to performance in one course.”
