Whether you are preparing to apply or enter a Nurse Anesthesia program, or are just interested in determining whether such a career choice is for you, the Post-Baccalaureate DNP in Anesthesiology at Barry University offers an online, self-paced, 3 credit hour course that is designed to specifically meet these needs. This course introduces and reviews topics critical to success in a Nurse Anesthesia program. Covered topics include:

  • Introduction to Nurse Anesthesia
  • Mathematics Review
  • General Chemistry Review
  • Organic Chemistry Review
  • Physics for Anesthesia
  • Conversions and Calculations

This course was developed in an attempt to decrease the risk of academic failure by Nurse Anesthesia students and was designed to provide brief reviews of basic science principles and clinical concepts. In addition, anesthesia-specific materials are incorporated to allow the student to develop a positive attitude towards their chosen course of studies. Students entering Nurse Anesthesia Programs rate this course highly.

The course is offered year-round, and takes approximately 45 hours to complete. Requirements include a 300 MHz Pentium (or equivalent) computer with Internet access. Broadband (DSL or cable modem) Internet access is highly recommended.

The next class will be offered in the Spring 2019 semester (January 14 - May 3, 2019). Class size is limited to 100 students and is expected to fill up fast - so don't delay!
