The Quinnipiac University School of Nursing invites applicants for the position of Assistant Director in a new Nurse Anesthesia (NA) program. We are in the process of accreditation to launch a nurse anesthesia (NA) program targeted to open in 2014. The program will offer BSN to DNP as well as post-masters in nurse anesthesia options.

The School of Nursing serves a rapidly growing population of 700 graduate and undergraduate students. As a newly designated School, our dynamic faculty is forging partnerships that offer cutting-edge opportunities for collaboration and programming that will position us for national recognition.

At the graduate level, our DNP (Doctor of Nursing Practice) and MSN programs currently prepare baccalaureate students to be adult or family nurse practitioners. A post-MSN to DNP option focusing on population-based care is also available.

At the School of Nursing, learning occurs in a highly personalized,
student-centered community that promotes academic excellence. We view nursing as both a science and an art that is holistic, goal-directed, research-based and concerned with the health and dignity of the whole person. The school collaborates and shares facilities with the School of Health Sciences and the newly formed Frank H. Netter, M.D. School of Medicine.
