as we get closer to the aacn (2015) and aana (2025) deadlines of implementing a doctoral program of nurse anesthesia, many issues still remain. kathleen a. fagerlund, crna, phd; and michael d. fallacaro, crna, dns, offered their take on the “movement to doctoral education – challenges and opportunities.”
fagerlund and fallacaro’s presentation kicked off the assembly of school faculty, held on saturday. fagerlund reviewed the process of incorporating the doctorate into current nurse anesthesia programs. by 2015, no new nurse anesthesia programs will be approved unless they offer a doctorate. by january 1, 2022, all programs must offer a doctorate. and by 2025, all nurse anesthesia graduates entering practice must have a doctorate.
