Loma Linda University School of Nursing recently added a new focus option for its DNP program: a nurse anesthesia doctorate for aspiring CRNAs.

BSN-To-DNP

The new Loma Linda University (LLU) nurse anesthesia DNP program is aimed at baccalaureate-prepared nurses and replaces LLU’s previous master’s program in nurse anesthesia.

Accredited by the Council on Accreditation of Nurse Anesthesia Educational Programs, the program is a 39-month hybrid curriculum — part online, part traditional coursework — designed to accommodate the needs of working nurses. 

“We designed this program to incorporate the same core principles that have made our M.S. degree program such a success,” says Kurt Cao, CRNA, DNAP,  the program’s director. “This includes a focus on excellent preparation for nurse anesthesia clinical practice in an environment that fosters physical, intellectual, emotional, relational, cultural and spiritual development.”

Third Focus

LLU will continue to also offer its nurse practitioner and clinical nurse specialist doctoral programs, so the new anesthesia education program will bring the school’s total DNP focus options to three. Loma Linda University is one of only 13 California schools to offer nursing doctorates. To learn more about the program, visit nursing.llu.edu.
