The Doctor of Nurse Anesthesia Practice
The DNAP will prepare the CRNA to serve in leadership roles within the health care system. The curriculum will promote the use of evidence-based practice as a means to prioritize direction for process change. The learner will manage a capstone project that will build as the learner progresses through each consecutive class. Projects will focus on anesthesia clinical practice, educational presentation or management improvement strategies.
The small class size will allow for individualized instruction. A one-on-one adviser will assist the learner in developing scholarly work that will build skills for future projects. The advisers will be seasoned faculty who have been in anesthesia practice for many years, serving in multiple roles, including military, leadership and clinical practice.
