    I have heard the texas weslyan program is a good one, they take a lot of students though, (~125) so you don't get individualized attention in the didactic portion. May or may not matter to you. They have clinical rotations in a lot of places (which allows for their large admission). I don't know anything about SMSU.

    Actually, Brett, I believe that the UT-Memphis program is a Masters of Science in Nursing with a core concentration in nurse anesthesia. This differs from the MSNA programs that do not require the MSN "core" courses.

    What are the "core" MSN classes? @ UT-mem. There are 4 classes that are "professional" classes. Is that the "Core" classes? Everything else is Patho. and Anesthesia and clinicals. They used to have a requirment for a thesis or research project but that's been removed. Let me know. You're right about it being a MSN.

    Hi Nick --

    The MSN will usually have several "general" advanced nursing classes which would be found in any of the MSN curriculums, be it accute care, family nurse practitioner, nursing administration, etc. Along with the general courses you would take a "concentration" in one of the areas.

    The MSNA, on the other hand, would offer courses focusing only on the advanced practice of anesthesia.

    Opinions differ on which program format is the better of the two.

    Hi Brett --

    A UT-Memphis, the "core" classes are Roles for Advanced Practice Nursing, Foundations for Evidence Based Practice, Methods for Evidence Based Practice, and Professional Role Development. These classes are required for all MSN curriculums.

    I have yet to "figure out" what *any* of those have to do with anesthesia :roll
