What is Required for CRNA School
The clinical component of a CRNA program provides supervised direct patient care experiences for students. They are able to evolve, apply a variety of anesthesia techniques and monitoring techniques, improve critical thinking skills, and apply evidence-based knowledge to clinical problems. All graduates are required to complete a minimum of 550 cases containing a wide variety and diversity of anesthesia experiences. The 2009 transcript data showed that the average graduate actually delivers more than 1,700 hours of hands-on clinical anesthesia care. This means they acquired over 850 individual cases. Students gain experience with patients of all ages who are in need of medical, surgical, dental, and obstetrical care.
While in the clinical portion of the CRNA program you will be keeping track of all the cases you do. This will include case type, anesthesia type, medications used, length of surgery, etc. School will have you fill out a summary of each case using TyphonGroup. This is an online service provided by TyphonGroup Healthcare Solutions. It is a very easy and efficient way to document all the cases you will need to be eligible for graduation.
