Program description

Doctor of Nurse Anesthesia Practice

Students in the AHU Nurse Anesthesia Program have the advantage of learning in a Christian environment where each student is valued as a child of God. Each May, a new cohort of nurse anesthesia students begins the nine trimester, 36-month program. The first two trimesters of the program are didactically-focused, and the remaining seven trimesters typically consist of one to two days of class and three to four days of clinical assignments each week, which varies by trimester.

Students in the Nurse Anesthesia Program have access to high-fidelity simulation labs, to include instruction in sonography-guided invasive line and regional block insertion. Clinically, AHU nurse anesthesia students have unparalleled access to clinical opportunities in the large AdventHealth system located throughout central Florida.
