The Master of Science in Nurse Anesthesia (MSNA) program is currently in a teach-out phase. Enrollment to the program ceased in August 2020, with the last graduation class expected in December 2022.
The Keiser University Master of Science in Nurse Anesthesia program was developed to create capable and skilled CRNA’s. The program is divided into stages; a 12-month didactic stage, located in Naples, Florida, and a 16-month clinical stage. The program is designed to be front-loaded with the didactic stage to establish the knowledge required to successfully transition into an immersive clinical stage. Upon completion of the clinical stage graduates will have been educated in a full scope of practice and will be ready to become a competent and safe Nurse Anesthetist.
During the clinical stage, the students will be immersed in clinical anesthesia. Didactics will be integrated throughout the clinical experience. This knowledge is necessary to pass the National Certification Exam. Students will be exposed to a full scope of practice with an average case count exceeding the minimum requirements.
