The Nurse Anesthesia option is designed to provide the professional nurse with an in-depth concentration in clinical anesthesia and prepare graduates of the program to assume the specialized role of nurse anesthetist. Students use research and collaborate to effectively contribute to the health care team's efforts to provide optimal care.
Upon completion of the program, students will be eligible to take the examination of the Council on Certification of Nurse Anesthetists. This option is a cooperative one between Gannon University and UPMC Hamot. Students must attend full-time in this option. Professional nurses who have a Bachelor of Science degree with a major in Nursing from an accredited program are encouraged to apply for admission.
