Nurse Anesthesia Program

Doctorate in Nursing Practice

Lourdes University’s Doctor of Nursing Practice Nurse Anesthesia Program (DNP) prepares graduates to sit for the National Certification Examination and certification as a Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist (CRNA).

The application deadline for the 2025 cohort has passed. The application deadline for our 2026 cohort will be March 2025.

To complete the Lourdes DNP Nurse Anesthesia program, students attend full-time for 36 months of continuous coursework, including didactic and clinical practicum. The program comprises nine semesters, including summer, with an additional week for final exams.

Students are also assigned clinical practicum experience during scheduled University breaks and afforded the maximum opportunity to meet the case requirements required by the Council on Accreditation of Nurse Anesthesia Educational Programs (COA).

The COA requires that students matriculating into a nurse anesthesia educational program on or after January 1, 2022, be enrolled in a program approved by the COA to award a practice doctoral degree. The Lourdes Nurse Anesthesia Program has COA approval to award the Doctor of Nursing Practice-Nurse Anesthesia degree.
