Doctor of Nurse Anesthesia Practice (DNAP)

The Doctor of Nurse Anesthesia Practice (DNAP) at Texas Wesleyan University is completed 100% online for the CRNA who is Master's prepared.

The DNAP and the DNP are similar in that they are both doctoral levels of degrees.  Any Advanced Practice Registered Nurse (APRN) can earn the DNP, including Nurse Anesthetists. However, the DNAP focuses solely on anesthesia.

DNAP degree programs are often offered in programs outside of schools or colleges of nursing. This is not all-inclusive.

This new online program, launched in the Spring of 2018, complements Texas Wesleyan's reputable nurse anesthesia program, which is the largest in the U.S. with more than 21 clinical sites in 9 states. The program can be completed in as little as three years or as long as seven with online classes and hands-on clinicals.
