Applications Increase for Nurse Anesthesiology Program
This year, interest in UDM's Nurse Anesthesiology program reached an all-time high. The program received a total of 104 applications for the fall 2002 class, surpassing its previous annual record of 76 applications.
"Faculty are very excited by the caliber of the students," says Michael Dosch, chair of the Nurse Anesthesiology Program, St. Joseph Mercy Hospital-Oakland.
Due to the increased demand, the program expanded the size of the accepted class by 30 percent at St. Joseph Mercy Hospital-Oakland and by 20 percent at Henry Ford Hospital.
Demand for qualified nurse anesthetists is very high in southeastern Michigan, the rural areas of the state, and nationwide. Due to the national shortage of nurse anesthetists, employment opportunities are extensive. According to Dosch, this is an excellent time to consider a career as a nurse anesthetist.
