Nurse Anesthesia (M.S.N.)

Nurse Anesthesia (M.S.N.)

The Nurse Anesthesia Program is a 28 month university-based program leading to a Master of Science in Nursing (M.S.N.) degree with a major in Nurse Anesthesia. It is the only university-based nurse anesthesia program leading to a M.S.N. in Southwest Florida.

 

The Council on Accreditation of Nurse Anesthesia Educational Programs (COA) requires that all students matriculating into a nurse anesthesia educational program on January 1, 2022 or thereafter be enrolled in a program approved by the COA to award a practice doctoral degree. The program plans to submit its application to the COA for approval to award the Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) degree in Nurse Anesthesiology in August 2018. Pending approval by the COA, the program plans to enroll its first doctoral cohort of students in May 2020. Further information regarding this transition may be obtained by contacting the program at (239) 590-7505 or via email to rspiegel@fgcu.edu.
