The Nurse Anesthetist Training Program is a post-graduate training program for Nurses. Under the strict supervision of an attending Anesthesiologist, the nurse anesthetist assists the anesthesiologist in administering the different types of anesthesia to patients and monitors them before, during and after the administration of anesthetics.
Some of the subjects that you may take while enrolled in the Nurse Anesthetist Program include:
- Regional Anesthesia, Theories, and Techniques
- Basic Principles of Nurse Anesthesia Practice
- Obstetric, Pediatric, and Geriatric Anesthesia

Aside from lectures and laboratory classes, you may also be given the opportunity to practice what you’ll learn in school at actual hospitals, outpatient clinics, and other medical facilities.
