Graduate Program in Anesthesia Nursing
The mission of the US Army Graduate Program in Anesthesia Nursing is to educate and develop qualified Army Nurse Corps Officers as beginning practitioners in anesthesia nursing. The Tripler Phase 2 Anesthesia Program is tasked with the mission of training Nurse Anesthetists to provide anesthesia in both peacetime and wartime scenarios. Successful completion of this program leads to a Master of Science degree from the Northeastern University School of Nursing and qualifies the graduate to write the Certification Examination for Nurse Anesthetists.
The US Army Graduate Program in Anesthesia Nursing is a 30-month, two-phase course of study leading to a Master of Science degree from Northeastern University. Phase I is an intense didactic program over 12 months, presented at the AMEDD Center and School, Fort Sam Houston, Texas. Tripler is one of 9 Phase 2 sites at which anesthesia nursing students receive their primary clinical training. Students spend 18 months preparing, administering and evaluating anesthesia practice and completing a major research project. Tripler’s clinical sites include Tripler Army Medical Center, Straub Hospital and Clinic, Kaiser Permanente and the University of California-Davis Medical Center.
