St Joseph Hospital School of Nurse Anesthesia collaborates with Rhode Island College Zvart Onanian School of Nursing to educate and empower nurses to enrich the health and well-being of all people. St. Joseph Hospital School of Nurse Anesthesia further aims to enhance and expand the knowledge, attitude, and skills of the professional registered nurses in a graduate framework so they as nurse anesthetists can function safely and effectively in any setting providing care for patients of all ages. This is accomplished through application of educational principles, methodology, theory, and practice in the range of activities related to anesthesia through optimum utilization of clinical and other learning resources. This is guided by the values of respect, compassion, responsibility, and teamwork.
