A degree in the Nursing Anesthesia program of the An-Najah National University is obtained after completion of course requirements at the advanced level of a total 50 credits, in which nursing and medicine are integrated.


The Nursing Anesthesia program of the An-Najah National University is designed to provide the student with continuous opportunities to relate theoretical knowledge with clinical practice by assuming increasing responsibility for total anesthesia patient care with tutorial guidance. The application of theoretical knowledge to the realities of clinical practice is a dynamic process, which enhances and enriches learning, as well as prepares the graduate to function effectively and competently as a professional.

Teaching and Learning

The student’s development of lifelong learning is emphasised. This is a way of dealing with the society of today and tomorrow, which is characterised by constant change, development and rapid growth of and access to new knowledge? Taking responsibility for one’s learning, seeking and evaluating knowledge, and being able to deal with change are also central factors. This view of learning requires that the individual is active, i.e. he/she studies the facts, reflects, takes a stand, tries things out or expresses himself/herself verbally and in writing. The whole individual, with his/her thoughts, feelings and actions, is involved in learning. Man has a need for wholeness, and learns in interplay with others and with the surroundings. The outlook upon which this supposition is based is characterised by belief in each individual’s ability and desire to obtain knowledge and competence. The most important tasks of education are to stimulate the student’s motivation in different ways, promote development of self-directed learning, and make sure there are good conditions for learning.

The curriculum is based on the Neumann systems model. Betty Neumann developed the Health Care System Model as an organizing framework to help in understanding client needs using a holistic viewpoint.  Neumann defines, describes, and links together the four concepts of nursing met paradigm (person, environment, health, and nursing) within the model using the world view of reciprocal interaction. The Neumann Systems Model depicts an open system in which persons and their environment are in dynamic interaction. The client system is composed of five interacting variables: physiological, psychological, sociocultural, developmental, and spiritual.

Career Opportunities

A nurse anesthetist provides, and participates in the provision of, advanced specialized nursing and anesthesia services to patients requiring anesthesia, respiratory care, cardiopulmonary resuscitation, and/or other emergency, life-sustaining services wherever required.

CRNAs practice in every setting in which anesthesia is delivered; traditional hospital surgical suites and obstetrical delivery rooms; critical access hospitals; ambulatory surgical centers; the offices of dentists, podiatrists, ophthalmologists, and plastic surgeons.

CRNAs are in demand and therefore have many opportunities for general or specialty practice throughout the world. A CRNA takes care of a patient’s anesthesia needs before, during and after surgery and the delivery of a baby.
