List of Dissertations and Theses

The following is a list of dissertations, theses, and research papers written by nurse anesthetists. These items have been donated to or acquired by the AANA Archives-Library; it is not a complete list of dissertations and theses written by nurse anesthetists.
 
The collection is focused on issues affecting the nurse anesthesia profession such as education, workforce, and job satisfaction, rather than clinical investigations of anesthesia drugs and techniques. The collection also contains a few works on nurse anesthesia history.
 
Interlibrary Loan (ILL) Policy
The Archives-Library lends items from its thesis and dissertation collection only to libraries in the U.S, not to individuals. The loan period is three weeks. Individuals should contact their hospital, university, or public library to initiate an interlibrary loan request. Libraries can make requests by sending an email to archives@aana.com.
