Nurse Anesthesia

The MSN Nurse Anesthesia Concentration is for BSN-prepared registered nurses interested in pursuing a career as a Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist (CRNA). 

The program is a full-time, 28-month course of study that includes academic courses and seminars incorporating high-fidelity human simulation. 

The curriculum also includes an anatomy course with a cadaver lab. Students gain extensive clinical experience at Barnes-Jewish Hospital and St. Louis Children’s Hospital, the adult and pediatric teaching hospitals for Washington University School of Medicine and Shriners Hospital. 

The high acuity and wide variety of patients seen at these institutions will provide students with clinical experiences unlike any other in the region. 

Graduates of the Nurse Anesthesia Concentration will be eligible to take the National Certification Examination given by the National Board on Certification and Recertification of Nurse Anesthetists (NBCRNA) to become certified in the field.
