How much "Nursing Theory" is in CNRA school?

  1. 1 I know Nurse Practitioners get their fair dose of nursing theories and theorists. I'm wondering if its the same for CRNA school. I personally (and I have spoken to many who agree with me) believe that, for the most part, this nursing theory stuff is just regurgitated psychology with an extra dash of bullsheet ("energy fields", anyone?).

    Technically I had 9 credits in theory for CRNA school. It is a nursing practice so it makes sense to have nursing theory behind it. Don't know if other schools have as much, but there has to be a theory behind the practice.

    It can be determined by the the degree granted by the program, if it's an MS (outside a college or school of nursing) there may be no nursing theory, if the program is in a nursing framework there can be a variable amount of nursing theory.

    Agreed. I'm getting my masters of science in nurse anesthesia and not an MSN. Therefore we do not work or apply the nursing theories to our delivery of anesthesia. But in reality, you do apply a lot of the theories you've learned and crafted as an RN, even of it's subconscious.
