The Nurse Anesthesia program at Wake Forest Baptist was founded in 1942, making it the oldest in North Carolina and one of the oldest in the nation. It is ranked among the top programs in the country by U.S. News & World Report. The program provides international learning opportunities for students, and helped develop and provided support for development of an anesthesia training program in Ghana.
