dc.description.abstract There is a national shortage of Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetists (CRNAs) in the United States. To strengthen the workforce, more Student Registered Nurse Anesthetists (SRNAs) need to graduate and pass the National Certification Exam (NCE). Evaluation of specific nurse anesthesia program admission criteria may help predict the applicant’s future post-graduation NCE potential success. This scholarly project determined if there is a correlation between pre-admission Graduate Record Exam (GRE) scores and post-graduation first attempt NCE scores, if GRE scores are predictive of NCE scores, and provided evidence-based recommendations for appropriate use of the GRE in the AdventHealth University (AHU) Doctor of Nurse Anesthesia Practice (DNAP) Program admission process. Data was analyzed using correlational analysis and multiple regression analysis methods. A quantitative retrospective correlational approach was used for data about the AHU nurse anesthesia graduates from 2015 to 2019. This scholarly project took place at AdventHealth University in central Florida. A correlation was found between total GRE scores and first-attempt NCE scores, but low predictability was found when looking at the GRE alone. Examination of the GRE categories demonstrated a correlation between GRE quantitative scores and first-attempt NCE scores, and no correlation was determined when looking at GRE qualitative scores and first-attempt NCE scores. en_US
