Clinical rotations begin the second semester and advance throughout the program. The primary clinical site is Beaumont Hospital, Royal Oak, a 1,070-bed level-one trauma center in Royal Oak, Michigan. In 2004, the hospital completed a major expansion project, and became the first Magnet Hospital for Nursing Excellence in Michigan. In 2009, Beaumont, Royal Oak announced the formation of Beaumont Children's and most recently, in 2019, the hospital performed more than 72,000 anesthetic cases.

The clinical education at Beaumont offers 14 surgical specialties including cardiovascular, pediatric, thoracic and vascular surgery. The Council on Accreditation of Nurse Anesthesia Programs requires a minimum of 550 cases. Students from Oakland University - Beaumont Nurse Anesthesia Program's 2019 class had 939 cases. In addition to the Royal Oak campus, the Oakland University-Beaumont Nurse Anesthesia Program also has access to the Beaumont hospitals in Troy, Grosse Pointe and more than 30 affiliate sites. Full-time distance education classes are attended using video conferencing via the Tandberg Education System for students in Kalamazoo and Marquette. The program also enrolls students for the Toledo, Ohio clinical placement. These students attend class at the Royal Oak campus, but the majority of the clinical rotations are done in Toledo, Ohio.

Student Leadership Tracks

The Student Leadership Tracks afford the anesthesia student the opportunity to be mentored by a CRNA leader over an extended period of time.

During this time, the student will complete scholarly activities aimed at addressing the challenges faced by CRNA leaders.

The four leadership tracks that are available are:

  • education
  • research
  • administration
  • politics/government relations

The leadership tracks will take place during the last 2 terms of the program. Time spent with the CRNA leader may be substituted for time traditionally spent in clinical practice. Additional didactic work may be required.
