FAQ - CRNA Program

How does the admission process for the Nurse Anesthesia Program work?Your information states that prerequisite course work must be completed prior to the September 15 deadline. If I do not have one of the prerequisite courses completed by this deadline, does that completely rule me out for the upcoming class or can something be worked out to have it completed by the time I may be accepted or prior to starting the program?How competitive is the program (how many applicants vs. number admitted)?I am interested in applying to the Nurse Anesthesia Program. I have a Master of Science in Nursing (MSN) degree and am currently working as a nurse practitioner.
