Kaiser Permanente School of Anesthesia (KPSA) is a pioneer of graduate level nurse anesthesia education for baccalaureate nurses since its inception in 1972. Our graduates achieve academic excellence and are recognized for their high quality, safe, and compassionate health care service to our members and the community. With the support of Kaiser Permanente, and in conjunction with California State University Fullerton, KPSA is dedicated in providing an excellent educational program in achieving your dream and goal of becoming a nurse anesthetist.
Beginning in fall 2018, as part of the Southern California CSU DNP Consortium, the School of Nursing at CSUF and KPSA have developed a three year sequential academic and clinical graduate program for nurses with a baccalaureate degree. Upon completion of the program, a Doctor of Nursing Practice degree with a concentration in Nurse Anesthesia is awarded by CSUF. Welcome to KPSA!
