- The FIU Nurse Anesthetist program was inaugurated in 2001 as the first nurse anesthetist program in the State of Florida University System.
- The program transitioned in 2016 from a master’s degree to a Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) – the educational standard needed to practice as a Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist (CRNA).
