Doctor of Nurse Anesthesia (DNAP)

Welcome to the Wayne State University Nurse Anesthesia Program!

Wayne State University Nurse Anesthesia Program transitioned to the Doctor of Nurse Anesthesia Practice (DNAP) in the fall of 2019. 

The DNAP degree is 36 months, designed to offer registered nurses an advanced education and full scope of practice as a Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist (CRNA).

Graduates will also meet the requirements for the National Certification Examination (NCE).


In light of the evolving nature and uncertainty surrounding the impact of the COVID-19 virus, the April, May and June information meetings and the 38th Senior Seminar have been canceled.
