Cedar Crest College to Add a Doctoral Degree Program in Nurse Anesthesia

Cedar Crest College, the liberal arts educational institution for women in Allentown, Pennsylvania, announced that it will introduce a new doctoral program in nurse anesthesia. The program director is Stephanie B. Woodruff, an associate professor of nursing at the college. Dr. Woodruff is a graduate of Georgetown University in Washington, D.C. She holds master’s degree in nursing from the University of Pennsylvania and a doctorate of nursing practice degree from Wilmington University in Delaware.

The 36-month, full-time program will offer students the opportunity to practice in a brand new, $1.8 million simulation lab complete with state-of-the-art technology, two high-fidelity simulation rooms, a high-fidelity operating room, a preoperative consultation room and a debriefing room. All nurse anesthesia classes will be offered in a classroom or simulation laboratory.

The nurse anesthesia program will have small cohorts which will allow for more individual attention and mentoring throughout the program. Applications will be accepted beginning on December 1.
