See all that we have to offer for students within USF Health, our “city within a city” and the beautiful Tampa Bay area. The University of South Florida, USF Health and the Tampa Bay area has a lot to offer no matter your background or interests. There is something for you!

The nurse anesthesia program at USF has prepared me to be a compassionate, competent, creative, and innovative anesthesia provider. The supportive faculty have let me know time and again they are invested in my success. I am thankful for the opportunity to learn from some amazingly skilled and knowledgeable CRNAs who have helped me to grow into an anesthesia provider who can positively impact the future of anesthesia care in the Tampa Bay community and beyond.
