Nursing Anesthesia, MS
The nurse anesthesia program is housed in the Bouvé College of Health Sciences, which encourages interdisciplinary collaboration with other healthcare disciplines. This high level of integration is part of what has made us one of the highest nationally ranked programs in the Northeast in the U.S. News and World Report ranking.
Northeastern offers a traditional masterʼs degree, an accelerated masterʼs for certified registered nurse anesthetists (CRNAs), and a Certificate of Advanced Graduate Study (CAGS).
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.
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 healthcare team. In fact, CRNAs administer more than 30 million anesthetics each year in the United States.
