Nurse anesthetist education is a major undertaking academically, professionally, emotionally, and financially. It is comparable to a typical medical residency program, with classroom, clinical and study time averaging around 60 hours per week. As such, this is a full-time graduate program and outside employment is not realistic and not consistent with the demands and expectations of such a program. 

The faculty and staff of the FIU Department of Nurse Anesthesiology are here to help you make the right decisions. We are available to help prospective students through the steps for program application and enrollment; guide current students through the curriculum; and assist all students with their questions about the program costs, time requirements and more.

Our goal is to help support you on your academic career toward academic success here at FIU to achieve professional success in the future.
