College of Nursing and Health Professions
The Nurse Anesthesia Department mission statement is in accord with the mission of the university and the College of Nursing and Health Professions. Graduate education in nurse anesthesia at the master's level builds on the education of the professional registered nurse with a baccalaureate degree in nursing.
The Nurse Anesthesia program is fully accredited by the Council on Accreditation of Nurse Anesthesia Educational Programs (COA). In 2010, the program received the maximum accreditation status of ten years from the COA. The Master of Science in Nursing (M.S.N.) in nurse anesthesia is a 28-month, 89-quarter credit, full-time integrated program that begins each January. The M.S.N. core and research courses are provided in an on-line format with some blended virtual class requirements. All anesthesia core and science coursework is offered at Drexel University’s Center City campus in Philadelphia or via video conferencing for students enrolled in the distance program located in central Pennsylvania.
