About the Department Anesthesiology Doctor of Nursing Practice Programs

The anesthesiology programs seek to provide curricula that prepare advanced practice registered nurses (APRNs) at the doctoral level to deliver safe, competent, and ethical anesthesia and anesthesia-related care to patients for diagnostic, therapeutic, and surgical procedures. The curricula are designed to cover the full scope of nurse anesthesia practice with the following focal areas: patient safety, perianesthesia care, critical thinking, communication and leadership, and the professional role of the certified registered nurse anesthetist (CRNA).

After your undergraduate studies, you may consider continuing your education in medical, dental, veterinary, optometry, or podiatry school. Other possibilities include working with the environment in the capacities of marine biologist, wildlife biologist, or environmental health expert. A biology degree can also prepare you for a future as a researcher or for a career with a government agency. Explore all the options at Barry!

Since 2004, our graduates have received excellent board passing rates. In addition, our highly-trained graduates are well sought after by hospitals and anesthesia groups.
