USF Nursing leads the way in CRNA education [VIDEO]
The Nurse Anesthesia program at USF is a national leader in training. Its faculty and students are also exceptional.
The purpose of this program is to prepare top-quality, independent anesthesia providers. With most of the training at one of the best simulation facilities in the country, Center for Advanced Medical Learning and Simulation (CAMLS), USF Nursing is doing just that.
“CAMLS is an operating room environment,” said Dr. Susan Perry, director of the CRNA program and senior assistant dean for the graduate programs at USF Nursing. “So, the students are able to train with top-level simulating mannequins and skills stations. They also have the opportunity to get used to temperatures, sights and sounds. It is all too real.”
The USF Nursing’s CRNA currently has 59 students. The college plans to register an additional 50 applicants in Aug. 2016.
USF Nursing is also planning to admit the first Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) CRNA cohort in 2019. The DNP CRNA will take 36 months to complete.
