About Our Program
Through an intensive 36-month program, students will translate classroom mentoring into clinical training at our many clinical education sites in central Florida.
Be the Comfort Your Patients Need
Certified registered nurse anesthetists (CRNAs) navigate the complexity of modern nursing and collaborate with physicians to ensure patients are safe and secure during the most intensive procedures.
Graduates from our nurse anesthesia program take their well-earned doctoral degree and apply it to a variety of specialties, where they can showcase their talents and commitment to patients of any age. CRNAs practice in traditional hospital settings, alongside anesthesiologists and surgeons, as well as in outpatient settings, like dentist and cosmetic surgeon offices.
At AdventHealth University, we appreciate the tenacity needed to master the art of anesthesia administration. That’s why we’ve designed a Nurse Anesthesia Program that’s highly competitive, comprehensive and challenging. Over nine trimesters, our students train with leading experts, applying critical didactic teachings to hands-on clinical experience and research opportunities.
