Doctor of Nurse Anesthesia Practice Clinical Education & Clinical Sites

About the Clinical Education Experience

Throughout the perioperative period of the post-baccalaureate DNAP program, students are educated in all facets of nurse anesthesia practice.

After completing their foundational learning, students participate in a series of 19 clinical rotations, each four to five weeks. During this time, students administer anesthesia to all types of patients, including complicated pediatric and adult patients, in a variety of practice settings. Students gain extensive hands-on clinical experience administering various types of regional anesthesia with ultrasound technology.

Our 24 clinical locations throughout South Carolina and Georgia range from Level 1 Trauma Centers to community hospitals to rural independent CRNA practices. We partner with our clinical sites to provide mentorship in major surrounding area trauma centers, rural medical centers, ambulatory centers.

Each clinical setting has student coordinators and instructors who serve as preceptors and role models for the student registered nurse anesthetist. Through their guidance and teaching, students are prepared to be autonomous, compassionate, competent, and ethical entry-level nurse anesthetists.
