An important message from Dr. Mary Ellen Glasgow, Dean of the School of Nursing

Thank you for your interest in the Doctor of Nurse Anesthesia Practice Program in collaboration with the Duquesne University School of Nursing, Rangos School of Health Sciences and Allegheny School of Anesthesia (ASOA).

Unfortunately, effective Fall 2024, we will no longer be accepting students into the Program.

The Council on Accreditation of Nurse Anesthesia Educational Programs (COA) publishes a complete list of accredited nurse anesthesia programs

I am excited to announce that the School of Nursing is in “Capability Review” with the Council on Accreditation of Nurse Anesthesia Educational programs (COA) with the goal of a sole DNP in Nurse Anesthesia Program, seating our first class in August 2025.

Until the COA grants Duquesne University School of Nursing accreditation, anticipated in May 2025, we are unable to admit our next cohort of students. We anticipate our program being 36 months in length, with face-to-face and on-line offerings, along with a strong clinical component preparing students for practice.

Please continue to check our website for further information. We will keep in touch with you, but please feel free to contact Dr. Scott Copley, Director of Admissions at (412) 396-4661 or copleyFREEDUQUESNE with questions. We look forward to receiving your application for our Fall 2025 cohort when the time is appropriate.
