Nurse Anesthesia Program
The Nurse Anesthesia Program at Samford University’s Ida V. Moffett School of Nursing celebrated its eight-year anniversary in the summer of 2011. The 28-month, 82-credit course of study awards a Master of Science in Nursing degree and prepares students to sit for the nurse anesthesia national certification examination. Graduates are prepared to work as a nurse anesthetist with a full scope of practice. In November 2006, the Nurse Anesthesia Program received the maximum 10-year accreditation from the Council on Accreditation of Nurse Anesthesia Educational Programs.
