Yale New Haven Hospital School of Nurse Anesthesia
The philosophy of the Yale New Haven Hospital School of Nurse Anesthesia is to provide society with highly competent nurse anesthesia practitioners. To fulfill this responsibility, we provide our students with a broad clinical and didactic experience, which is in keeping with the current standards and guidelines set by the Council on Accreditation of Nurse Anesthesia Educational Programs. Our faculty shows a deep commitment to the education of nurse anesthesia practitioners, openly sharing their expertise with our students. The faculty consists of certified registered nurse anesthetists, physician anesthesiologists, surgeons, allied health practitioners and professors. Our objective is to provide an educational and clinical experience that will enable the student, after completion of the program, to provide safe, comprehensive and compassionate anesthetic care to the wide variety of clinical situations that arise in the current practice of anesthesia. The program provides a tremendous educational stimulus for students as well as faculty members. The result is seen in the quality of anesthesia care administered at our institution and in the clinical and academic excellence of our graduates.
Quinnipiac University Post-Bachelor's DNP in Nurse Anesthesia
Nurse anesthetists are vital in hospital operating rooms, surgery centers, physicians’ offices and beyond. Working alongside anesthesiologists, surgeons and others, nurse anesthetists administer anesthesia for all types of surgical cases, from the simplest to the most complex. In the nurse anesthesia DNP track, you’ll master a range of competencies, including advanced physiology and pathophysiology, anatomy (with cadaver lab), advanced pharmacology and advanced chemistry for anesthetic practice.
The nurse anesthesia DNP track is only offered as a full-time program and is completed in three years. The clinical component increases as the program progresses, beginning with part-time hours and gradually ending with full-time hours plus a call rotation. As a nurse anesthetist, you’ll assess, administer and maintain anesthesia to ensure proper sedation and pain management, and oversee patient recovery anesthesia after a procedure or surgery.
