Nurse Anesthesia - CRNA-DNP

The Oakland University-Beaumont Graduate Program of Nurse Anesthesia is a collaborative initiative between Oakland University and nationally renowned Beaumont Health System. Working in concert, both institutions are able to provide an exceptional educational environment for educating Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists. The Nurse Anesthesia program is among the best of its kind in the country according to the latest education rankings released by U.S. News & World Report for 2017. The publication ranked the nurse anesthesia program 18th out of 115 U.S. graduate programs in the nation.

The Nurse Anesthesia Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) program prepares advanced practice nurses (APRNs) with a specialization in nurse anesthesia. The curriculum is an integration of DNP, APRN and nurse anesthesia specialty courses. Clinical internships provide the opportunity for students to apply theory to practice, gain experience in all specialty areas and to become experts capable of providing anesthesia care to patients across the lifespan at all levels of acuity, undergoing procedures of varying complexity.

After 36 months of full-time study, graduates are prepared to take the certification examination offered by the National Board on Certification and Re-certification of Nurse Anesthetists leading to the designation CRNA.
