Documents for Students

Refer back to these links and documents you'll use throughout your time in the program.

Health and Wellness

The study of anesthesia is intense and demanding of intellect and time. Our students spend up to 70 hours per week in clinical experiences, classes and studying. Students receive two weeks of discretionary leave annually, and our department strongly discourages students working while attending the program.

The University of Kansas has a long-standing commitment to its students and faculty to provide a safe and healthy educational/work environment. The nurse anesthesia program has developed policies to maintain a conducive, positive and productive environment that is free from the effects of alcohol and other drugs.

Students do have a life while in the program and need to balance time as a student with time spent with family and friends. For information about student life and support resources on campus, please visit:

Living in Kansas City

Our excellence in education is known nationally. The fact that Kansas City is a great place to live is less well known. Learn what makes KC such a wonderful place to live and learn.

Professional Associations

We encourage students to learn more about these organizations as they prepare for a future in nurse anesthesia practice.
