The Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) in Nurse Anesthesia program at USF incorporates many cutting edge technologies, including human anesthesia simulation, while providing a fully integrated learning environment for students. The classroom and clinical setting are designed to achieve integration of the knowledge, skills and ability necessary for the development of competent and proficient Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists (CRNAs).
The DNP in Nurse Anesthesia program has teamed up with the Center for Advanced Medical Learning and Simulation (CAMLS) to provide the most state-of-the-art simulation experience, which is integrated into the curriculum. CAMLS is part of the USF Health Simulation Consortium, which has received Level I accreditation as a comprehensive education center from the American College of Surgeons (ACS). The program is a challenging, full-time academic and clinical endeavor.
Note: The USF College of Nursing is transitioning from the master's program (no longer admitting) to the DNP program (now admitting for summer 2019).
