U.S. Army Graduate Program in Anesthesia

Mission

The United States (U.S.)  Army Graduate Program in Anesthesia Nursing's (USAGPAN) mission is to produce leaders in medicine who are grounded in evidence based practice, competence, professionalism, communication, lifelong learning, and the social context of medicine. 

Vision

Our graduates are independent leaders in anesthesia nursing prepared at the doctoral level whose focus is to improve and sustain the highest standards of practice and foster a healthcare environment that improves the lives of all entrusted to their care.   

  • Program Overview
    • The philosophy of the U.S. Army Graduate Program in Anesthesia Nursing, as a social agency dedicated to the education and development of health care professionals in the field of anesthesia nursing, recognizes and accepts the responsibilities entrusted to it for program development, implementation and evaluation, and for the provision of learning experiences for its students.  We believe that as educators we must present to the student a realistic microcosm of a larger endeavor to which he or she, as a skilled professional, ultimately will be dedicated.
      Our philosophical orientation in the educational process subscribes to the belief that learning is a developmental process through which cognitive, affective, and psychomotor behaviors are developed and/or modified.  This process includes the acquisition of information, the transferal of knowledge, the evaluation of new skills, and the reinforcement of a professional attitude.
       
      We further subscribe to the belief that learning is both positive and rewarding for the student, that it is a transactional experience between the student and teacher through formal and informal processes; the objective being to produce a knowledgeable and skillful nurse anesthetist. Finally, the student as an adult learner is expected to take responsibility for his/her education to the extent of acquiring the requisite knowledge, skills, behavior, and attitudes to function as a professional practitioner of nurse anesthesia.
