Program Summary:

The Adventist University of Health Sciences Nurse Anesthesia Program enables their students to learn in a Christian environment where all students are valued as a child of God. The anesthesia program provides access to simulation labs and has the honor of being one of the few CRNA schools in the United States that applies instruction in sonography-guided invasive line and regional block insertion. During clinicals the RRNA students have access to the Florida Hospital system, which is the biggest in Orlando. They have an average class size of 22 students each year, and have a large number of applicants.
