The DrAP/MBA is for Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists (CRNA) with an interest in Business/Healthcare Administration. The curriculum allows the CRNA to apply up to 21 specified credits toward both degrees. The degrees are independent; each is awarded when completed with specified credits accepted for the second degree after the first has been awarded. The MBA degree is awarded with a concentration in Health Care Management.
