nurse anesthetist caring for patient

New hybrid DNP-Nurse Anesthesia program in development

The Betty Irene Moore School of Nursing at UC Davis plans to offer a Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) — Nurse Anesthesia Degree Program to prepare current critical care nurses as new nurse anesthetists.

The DNP – Nurse Anesthesia Degree Program will join the Doctor of Nursing Practice — Family Nurse Practitioner Degree Program in combining distanced-based online education with on-campus or on-site immersion, simulation or clinical experiences to prepare Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists (CRNAs). 

CRNAs provide anesthesia care before, during and after surgery, as well as deliver other important health interventions, while providing patient- and family-centered, evidence-based care. Guided by the school’s vision for optimal health and health care equity for all, the school plans to prepare graduates as leaders who effect bold system change and promote health care innovation by informing and advancing health policy and health equity locally, nationally and globally.
