Clinical Experience

Students practice administering anesthesia on a mannequin


Upon completion of the campus-based portion of the program in April, you begin the 19-month hospital-based phase. Your clinical anesthesia training provides a breadth of experiences necessary to achieve clinical competency in anesthesia.

You participate in more than 550 anesthesia cases through our affiliations with sites throughout New England, satisfying the standards set by The Council on Accreditation of Nurse Anesthesia Educational Programs in order to qualify for the National Certifying Examination.

You obtain experience in general anesthetics, intravenous agents, and regional anesthetics—including spinal, epidural, Axillary blocks, and Bier blocks. All of the surgical specialties are available to you, including hands-on training in neurosurgery, open-heart surgery, high-risk obstetrics, and so on.
