The Kenya Registered Nurse Anesthetist (KRNA) programme is a Higher Diploma designed to equip registered nurses with the skills, knowledge, and attitudes required in preparing, administering, and maintaining appropriate and safe anaesthesia to surgical patients with normal physiology, as well as those with various co-existing disease. Using a unique, multi-displinary approach, this eighteen month programme exposes students to current theoretical knowledge and evidence-based practice, and will gain a professional understanding of current debates and issues in this area of specialisation.
A KRNA ensures that patients survive surgery without any pain or recollection.

If you're a detail-oriented leader with a drive to excel as an independent decision maker, then this might be the right specialisation for you and this diploma will provide you with the skills, values, and mindset to excel in this highly demanding sector.
