The Anesthesia Program is in the process of transitioning to a doctoral degree. For this reason, students will not be admitted for the Master’s degree during the year 2021-2022. The Council on Accreditation (COA) requires that all students who enroll in a Program as of January 1, 2022, be enrolled in a COA approved program to award a Doctoral Degree in Nursing Practice (DNP). Our Program intends to submit your application to convert the current Program to a Doctoral Program in Nursing Practice with a Specialty in Anesthesia in May 2021. Pending approval by the COA, the Program expects to enroll its first doctoral cohort of students in June 2022. For more information on this transition, contact the Program.
