Director’s Letter

Discover Uncommon Achievement

Your interest in nurse anesthesia could not come at a better time – for you or for the profession. The demand for anesthetists is high, and patients and families have great need for your services.

TCU’s School of Nurse Anesthesia is anchored in an established and respected college, staffed with experienced and expert faculty and well connected to the health care community. At TCU, you will find that uncommon achievement is common.

Notable distinctions:

  • Students practice with state-of-the-art Human Patient Simulator mimicking the human response.
  • Program earned ten-year accreditation on first eligibility.
  • Students achieved 97 percent first-time pass rate on national certification examination – well above national average of 88 percent (Class of 2005 – 2015).

Please explore our Web site. We are happy to answer questions – contact us by e-mail or phone. We hope you choose to be a part of addressing the critical shortage of practitioners in this vital field.
