Mission & Vision

Our Mission

It is the mission of the FIU Department of Nurse Anesthesiology to create a positive impact upon the profession of anesthesiology nursing by developing nurse anesthetists who will be the leaders of tomorrow in practice, education, research.

Our faculty, staff, students, alumni, and clinical partners create a dynamic working and learning environment by imparting knowledge through excellent teaching, discovering new knowledge, problem solving, promoting clinical excellence and fostering creativity and innovation.

We have a commitment to excellence, quality, and accountability that transcends the educational process and advances the use of clinical evidence as the basis for anesthesiology nursing practice, policy, and delivery.

Accordingly, we are recognized for: our scientific knowledge in the discipline, critical and creative thinking, inter-professional teamwork, and a commitment to the health and safety of individuals and communities we serve.

 As a catalyst for leadership, innovation and collaboration, we engage diverse groups of professionals, organizations, and communities serving South Florida, the State, the nation, and the international community addressing the challenges before us in anesthesiology nursing practice, education and research.
