About Us

TCU’s School of Nurse Anesthesia offers one program for entry to nurse anesthesia practice. The Doctor of Nursing Practice- Anesthesia (DNP-A) is a 36-month program which begins with 20 months of coursework which includes research, biostatistics, decision science, informatics, complexity, innovation, emerging science, health care policy, politics, pharmacology, chemistry, anatomy and physiology, and pathophysiology.

The program concludes with a 16-month clinical residency. Students are placed in hospital settings across the nation for clinical education where they practice under the guidance of clinical faculty, nurse anesthetists, and anesthesiologists.

Graduates are eligible to sit for the National Certifying Examination (NCE) administered by the National Board of Certification and Recertification of Nurse Anesthetist (NBCRNA). Prospective students should check their state Board of Nursing (BON) requirements for Advanced Practice Registered Nurses, to determine the necessary steps needed to practice as a Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist (CRNA).

The Doctor of Nursing Practice-Anesthesia program is accredited by the Council on Accreditation of Nurse Anesthesia Educational Programs (COA), a specialized accrediting body recognized by the Council on Higher Education Accreditation (CHEA) and the United States Department of Education (DOE).
