Flight Nursing MSN Program/National Flight Nurse Academy

The National Flight Nurse Academy, founded as a partnership between Case Western Reserve University and the MetroHealth System, prepares acute care nurse practitioners to practice in unstructured environments, conducts interdisciplinary disaster-response training during its annual summer camp, and conducts research to build the evidence base for practice in air medical services. Since 1982, our clinical partner, Metro LifeFlight has transported more than 60,000 patients. MLF flys four Sikorsky S-76's that are supplemented by two ground units and fixed wing aircraft as needed.
