Nurse Anesthesia Program


The Millikin University and Decatur Memorial Hospital Nurse Anesthesia Program is jointly provided by Decatur Memorial Hospital and Millikin University. Our program places a strong emphasis on performance learning opportunities focusing on advanced knowledge and technical skills required for unrestricted nurse anesthesia practice.
