The Anesthesia Program transitioned to a doctoral degree. For this reason, the master’s program is in the process of moratorium. The Council on Accreditation for Nursing Anesthesia Programs (COA) requires that all students enrolling in a program on or after January 1, 2022, be enrolled in a COA-approved Doctoral Degree in Nursing Practice (DNP).
