    The Ursuline College with Somnia Nurse Anesthesia Program (SNAP) curriculum is a full-time, 36-month integrated format that prepares the baccalaureate-educated nurse to become a doctorally prepared nurse anesthetist. The curriculum is designed to meet the standards of the Council on Accreditation of Nurse Anesthesia Educational Programs (COA).

    The application for January 2025 will open February 1st, 2024 and the application deadline is May 15th, 2024.

    Ursuline College partnered with Somnia Nurse Anesthesia Program, LLC in 2022 to create and operate the Ursuline College with SNAP. This is the first corporate sponsored nurse anesthesia program in the United States. Somnia Nurse Anesthesia Program, LLC is an independent privately owned nurse anesthesia education company that provides nurse anesthesia continuing education and workshops across the country. The mission of SNAP is to prepare nurse anesthetists with advanced, specialized knowledge and skills to meet the health needs of diverse populations and to serve as health care leaders.

    Nurse anesthesia faculty teach asynchronous and synchronous classes for this hybrid program.

    Why become a CRNA?

    The American Association of Nurse Anesthetists (AANA) reports 2,400 CRNAs graduate each year, a number falling far short of the 7,600 positions needed by 2028 according to Bureau of Labor Statistics projections. As of 2022, new graduates from nurse anesthesia programs are required to have a terminal degree such as a PhD or DNP to enter into practice. This new program meets those requirements and more.

    Post-Graduate Doctor of Nursing Practice Adult-Gerontology Acute Care Nurse Practitioner (AGACNP) - Nurse Anesthesia Track

    Students enrolled in the DNP Nurse Anesthesia program may consider the post-doctoral AGACNP track. This track prepares the graduate to become certified as an Adult-Gerontology Acute Care Nurse Practitioner (AGACNP), in addition to a Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist (CRNA).

    The students will first complete the Nurse Anesthesia program (36 months) and receive their Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) degree. Students are then eligible to take the National Certification Exam (NCE) administered by the National Board of Certification & Recertification for Nurse Anesthetists (NBCRNA) to become a CRNA. For those who wish to enroll in the post-graduate AGACNP program, the application process is simplified.

    The AGACNP courses are offered via distance learning with synchronous and asynchronous formats, however students are required to return to campus during the NR 644 and NR 645 courses for training and skills assessments. Clinicals will be arranged by the program, and as much as possible will be located near your residence. Practicum hours must be with an AGACNP, physician intensivist, or physician hospitalist (critical care medicine).

    After completing the required courses and clinical hours (minimum 500 hours) in the post-graduate AGACNP curriculum, the student will be eligible to take the Adult-Gerontology Acute Care Nurse Practitioner (AGACNP) certification exam. This exam is available through either the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) or the American Association of Critical-Care Nurses (AACN).
