Information about AFSAIN's Nurse Anesthesia Program Curriculum

Afsain (established by two provincial hospitals Aarau and Baden) is providing theoretical education for post graduate studies in anesthesia care (PET Post-Degree at the level of a professional college). Based on the curriculum framework of OdA Santé (professional organization of healthcare players) established in July 2009. The studies to become an “Expert in anesthesia care with PET Post-Degree” include 900 hours of theoretical education and training on the job at one of our 8 partner hospitals. Afsain is providing current and usable knowledge with a high priority on practical orientation. All teachers and staff at Afsain are linked to one of our partner hospitals – our way to guarantee the transfer from theory into practice and vice versa. Our curriculum is based on precise learning objectives and covers a wide range of anesthesia topics. In order to develop our school, we react actively on news and trends in perioperative medicine. We strongly encourage our students to take responsibility for their learning process and support them in a practical and pragmatic way. Afsain is proud to contribute to the high quality education of Nurse Anesthetists in Switzerland and supports the development of this very important and fascinating profession.
