Effective fall 2018, all anesthesia specialty courses will be held at the Union Square Campus (USC) in Greensboro. The new USC building is a state of the art nursing education building outfitted with technology classrooms, labs, simulation space and an OR suite. Additional amenities include easy access parking, student lockers, student lounge with a refrigerator and microwave, and student study areas.
Established in 1990, Raleigh School of Nurse Anesthesia was founded through the cooperative efforts of Rex Healthcare, WakeMed Raleigh, and Duke Raleigh Hospital due to the growing need of Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists (CRNA) in North Carolina.
RSNA’s 36-month clinical and didactic curriculum offers students the opportunity to develop into safe and competent CRNA’s by providing a course of study that encourages lifelong learning in the practice of nurse anesthesia. The didactic and clinical education that the student receives throughout the program will prepare them to take the national board certification exam administered by the National Board on Certification and Recertification of Nurse Anesthetists (NBCRNA) to be come a Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist.
Participating clinical sites are located throughout the state of North Carolina and offer our students exposure to, but not limited to: general anesthesia, monitored anesthesia care, regional anesthesia and pain management. Specialty anesthesia rotations in obstetrics, pediatrics, cardiac, and neurosurgery ranging from routine to complex and covering all ages will prepare the students to practice in a wide range of specialties.
RSNA is accredited by the Council on Accreditation of Nurse Anesthesia Educational Programs (COA, 222 South Prospect Avenue, Park Ridge, IL 60068; 847-655-1160; http://coacrna.org). In May, 2012, RSNA received a 10-year continuation of accreditation through May, 2022, the maximum accreditation period attainable through COA. RSNA was approved by the COA to offer a Doctor of Nursing Practice degree.
For the graduating class of 2018, the certification examination pass rate for first time test takers was 91%. The pass rate for this cohort for the second time test takers was 100%. At this time, all graduates are employed. The Class of 2018 graduated 34 students. after admitting 35 students in August, 2015.
