History and Distinctions

Decatur Memorial Hospital Nurse Anesthesia Program began educating Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists in 1965 to address the shortage of nurse anesthetists in Central Illinois. The nurse anesthesia program has evolved throughout its existence to meet the needs and expectations of our students, the nurse anesthesia profession, and requirements for continued accreditation.

Decatur Memorial Hospital (DMH) partnered with Millikin University  in the summer of 2010 to launch The Millikin University and Decatur Memorial Hospital Nurse Anesthesia Program. Doctor of Nursing Practice (DNP) coursework at DMH and the Millikin University School of Nursing prepares qualified, experienced Registered Nurses in the Advanced Practice Nursing specialty of nurse anesthesia.
