Whether in a planned procedure or an emergency, a small local hospital or a regional center, a rural or urban setting, and throughout the life cycle, the nurse anesthetist is a critical member of the health care team. In fact, certified registered nurse anesthetists (CRNAs) administer more than thirty million anesthetics each year in the United States.
Northeastern's Nurse Anesthesia program is housed in the Bouvé College of Health Sciences, which encourages interdisciplinary collaboration with other health care disciplines. This high level of integration is part of what has made us one of the highest nationally ranked programs in the North East in the U.S. News and World Report ranking.
Northeastern offers a traditional MS, an accelerated MS for certified CRNA's, a Certificate of Advanced Graduate Study and participation in the US Army Graduate Program in Nurse Anesthesia.
Students graduate in May each year and are eligible to sit for the national certification examination for nurse anesthetists, administered by the Council on Certification of Nurse Anesthetists.
The Bouvé program received funding from the Department of Health and Human Services to increase its size and diversity. As a result, many of our students receive stipends, grants, and tuition assistance.
Northeastern University is accredited by the New England Association of Schools and Colleges, Inc. The School of Nursing is accredited by the Commission on Collegiate Nursing Education (CCNE). The nurse anesthesia program is accredited by the Council on Accreditation of Nurse Anesthesia Educational Programs (COA) for the maximum allowable ten years.
