As medical knowledge and technology evolve, so does the field of nurse anesthesia. According to the U. S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, job opportunities are predicted to increase 31 percent in the next 10 years. As this growth occurs, nurse anesthetists must remain sensitive to the needs of the people in their care, the society in which we live, and the profession.
Webster University’s Nurse Anesthesia program prepares you for practice as a Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist (CRNA). You’ll build foundational expertise in the art and science of anesthesia, and you’ll come away with the skills to stay on the leading edge of a rapidly changing field. At Webster, we believe nurse anesthesia requires a scientific, compassionate and dynamic approach to assist patients in their return to health. Thus, our program focuses on a holistic and thorough integration of affective, cognitive, and psychomotor skills.
Clinical experience is also an essential component of the program. You’ll start clinical rotations as early as the second term of your first year. Through our partnerships with 13 private-practice and university-based clinical facilities in the heart of the rapidly developing BioBelt corridor, you’ll gain hands-on experience. Your rotations will take place at 8 to 10 of these institutions where you’ll practice a broad range of general, regional, and monitored anesthesia care for adults and children.
Take the next step toward becoming a well-qualified, compassionate CRNA. Apply today.
Note: Applicants in the Nurse Anesthesia program must have an undergraduate nursing degree and be a licensed registered nurse.
