| The DMPNA program at Marshall University follows a practitioner-scholar model. The emphasis is on understanding the field of nurse anesthesia as an empirically-informed discipline.
The culminating requirement for the DMPNA degree is a research project not a dissertation. The scope of the project must be commensurate with the culmination of a doctoral degree in the management practice of nurse anesthesia and must represent a student’s original work.
The project must be one that allows the student to have an opportunity to develop and ultimately demonstrate a synthesis of senior graduate management practice skills within the context of improving health care. Given this requirement, the setting, purpose and objectives of student projects will vary, but every research project will include the synthesis of strategic, creative thinking, decision making, business planning, project management, and communication skills that are hallmarks of a DMPNA graduate.
Excellence in nurse anesthesia education since 1955
