Our Lady of the Lake College
Graduates of Our Lady of the Lakes’ CRNA School will receive a Master of Science Degree in Nurse Anesthesia. After successful completing the Nurse Anesthesia program, the student will be allowed to take the national certification examination offered by the National Board on Certification and Recertification of Nurse Anesthetists (NBCRNA). The school was created in 2005 and usually has between 10-15 students per class. The number of applicants each year is usually small, so the competition is low. More information is available on our CRNA Career Pro website to anyone who is wondering how to get admission into anesthesia school. We have student blogs written by current CRNA students, a CRNA Prep Course that allows you to start preparing for Nurse Anesthesia school now, and a eBook program that will guide you through the entire application process.
