Discover Uncommon Achievement.

Your interest in nurse anesthesia could not come at a better time – for you or for the profession. The demand for anesthetists is high, and patients and families have great need for your services.

TCU’s School of Nurse Anesthesia is anchored in an established and respected college, staffed with experienced and expert faculty and well-connected to the health care community. At TCU, you will find that uncommon achievement is common.

Notable distinctions:

  • Students practice with a state-of-the-art Human Patient Simulator that mimicks the human response
  • The program earned ten-year accreditation upon first eligibility
  • Students achieved a 97% first-time pass rate on national certification examination – well above national average of 88% (class of 2005 – 2015).
