Are you concerned that the Yale-New Haven Hospital Nurse Anesthesia Program won’t give you the specific experiences or training you need to be a successful CRNA? Learn what standards CRNA Programs must meet in order to be accredited by the Council on Accreditation of Nurse Anesthesia (COA).
This CRNA program (as well as all others that are accredited by the COA) prepares you to take the CCNA certification exam at the conclusion of the program, allowing you to become a CRNA.
The program is front loaded. During the didactic phase (12 months) the student is a full–time student at CCSU. The clinical phase (24 months) is offered primarily at the Yale-New Haven Hospital in both the operating rooms and other critical care areas, as well as the program’s 4 clinical affiliation sites (all in CT). They do not compete with residency programs for cases.
