Admissions


BS to DNAP

Mount Marty College Nurse Anesthesia Program requires at least one year (2 preferred) of recent full-time critical care nursing experience as a registered nurse. Acceptable critical care nursing experience includes: ICU, CCU, SICU, MICU, NICU, and PICU. We look for candidates who have developed critical thinking skills while caring for seriously ill patients with multi-system involvement. In addition to possessing independent decision-making skills, candidates should be capable of using and interpreting advanced monitoring techniques, ECG interpretation, ventilator management, and regulating and instituting pharmacological principles. Admission into the program is quite competitive and most people entering the program have two or more years of critical care experience prior to entering the program.
