School of Nursing and Health Sciences
Inside the Westminster CRNA program, our classrooms set the stage for deeper clinical experience. Students spend minimal time in the lecture hall and maximum time with their sleeves rolled up in our sophisticated simulation laboratory. Once they’ve mastered the on-campus curriculum, they move on to rotations in hospitals and clinics.
Who It's For
Students who welcome rigorous coursework, embrace hands-on learning, and take advantage of a simulation lab that’s open 24/7 will thrive in this program.
Our Experience is Your Guide
Mentoring you is top priority. So every faculty member is personally responsible for the success of six students.
Don't Hope for Your Dream Job—Plan on It
All graduates find full-time employment within three months, and many have their job locked in before graduation.
How Long it Takes
This 64 credit-hour program occurs over the course of 29 months, with coursework beginning in August and clinical rotations starting September the following year.
Accreditation Employers Trust
The Council on Accreditation of Nurse Anesthesia Educational Programs (COA) requires that all students matriculating into a nurse anesthesia educational program on January 1, 2022 or thereafter be enrolled in a program approved by the COA to award a practice doctoral degree. The program plans to submit its application to the COA for approval to award the Doctor of Nursing Practice in September, 2018. Pending approval by the COA, the program plans to enroll its first doctoral cohort of students in May, 2021.
