The doctor of nursing practice (D.N.P.) is a terminal degree in nursing. The nurse anesthesia option can be completed in thirty-six months of full-time study. The program will prepare graduates with competencies and skills to provide safe, evidence-based anesthesia care. The program emphasizes excellent clinical skills, sensitivity to cultural and spiritual matters, and a focus on care needs of rural and medically underserved populations. Entry-into-practice competencies related to clinical anesthesia care, leadership, collaboration, complex problem-solving, and advocacy will serve as the foundation upon which the graduates will further develop knowledge, skills, and abilities to function and thrive in the complex health care environment.
