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 program is proud to announce that the Class of May 2011 has achieved 100% pass rate.
