Master of Science with a Focus in Anesthesia Degree

IMPORTANT NOTE: The final Master of Science with a Focus in Anesthesia class has been accepted and began classes in July 2017. MTSA has phased-out the MS program and has switched to the Doctor of Nurse Anesthesia Practice program which began in January 2018. Click here for more information.


Take your nursing career to the next level – the highest domain of nursing — and 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.

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.
