Student: Instructor Ratio

  • The clinical supervision of students to instructors must be coordinated to assure patient safety by taking into consideration
  • Student knowledge and ability
  • Physical status of the patient
  • Complexity of the anesthetic and/or surgical procedure
  • Experience of the instructor
  • NO greater than 2:1 student-to-instructor ratio.
  • A CRNA or Anesthesiologist must be immediately available to the student for consultation and/or assistance.
  • Supervision at clinical sites is limited to CRNAs and anesthesiologists who are institutionally credentialed to practice. Clinical supervision in non-anesthetizing areas is restricted to credentialed experts authorized to assume student responsibility.
