As a student in our Nurse Anesthesia program, you benefit from the state-of-the-art educational resources on our Portland Campus, which include interactive classrooms equipped with the latest media and computer technology, electronic journals and books, and a Clinical Simulation Program that features several high-tech patient simulators.
Beginning in your first semester, you participate in simulation exercises that provide a realistic facsimile of the work you’ll perform in the clinical environment. You translate theoretical knowledge into practice through a variety of simulated scenarios. Click to learn more about our Interprofessional Simulation and Innovation Center.
As our health care system grows more and more complex due to technological advances, changing economic patterns, and health care reform, the role of the nurse anesthetist evolves to include increasing collaboration with a wide range of other health professionals. UNE is one of only a handful of private universities in the U.S. with a comprehensive health education mission that includes medicine, pharmacy, dental medicine, nursing and an array of allied health professions.
UNE's interprofessional education initiatives prepare you to practice comprehensive and collaborative team-based care through interprofessional curricula, programs, clinical practice sites, research, scholarship, and training.
