Currently all programs are Master's Degree programs. Previously (decades ago) Nurse Anesthesia was a certificate. Those practicing under this were grandfathered and do not need to get their Master's. There are not many left. Long answer short, a Master's degree. There is a movement to make it a doctorate which is probably 7 to 10 years away.
