Enhancing your education in the professional practice of nurse anesthesia.

For entry to nurse anesthesia practice TCU’s School of Nurse Anesthesia offers a 36-month doctoral program which begins each January with 20 months of coursework. In the first 8-months there are on-line courses in decision science, informatics, complexity theory, and research. In August, students report to the TCU campus for 12 months of courses in pharmacology, chemistry, anatomy, physiology, pathophysiology, translational research, and experiences in the Human Patient Simulation Lab. The course work is followed by a 16-month hospital based clinical residency. The clinical education is under the guidance of clinical instructors who are expert nurse and physician anesthetists.
