Dr. Centimole joined the School of Nursing to accompany Dr. Cheryl Parker in beginning the first nurse anesthesia program housed on a tertiary medical center campus, in the state of Kentucky. He has over 15 years of Certified Registered Nurse Anesthetist (CRNA) practice in the tertiary health care setting. His practice experience spans from outpatient remote anesthetics to major trauma resuscitations, as well as a large volume of complex cancer care. He also has been a didactic assistant professor in the Northern Kentucky University-Nurse Anesthesia Program, teaching courses in pharmacology, chemistry, and physics for nurse anesthetists. He has presented at national meetings and been published in several perianesthesia journals. His most recent article regarding calcinosis universalis is published in the April 2022 edition of the AANA Journal.

His research interests include the effects of anesthesia on cognitive function. In his clinical trial from 2014-2017, he applied the Cambridge Neuropsychological Test Automated Battery-Mild Cognitive Impairment (CANTAB-MCI) computer-based system to the anesthesia population. He actively studies individualized, custom anesthesia, strategies to optimize patient outcomes in vulnerable individuals. He will teach in the Doctor of Nursing Practice-Nurse Anesthesia Track and continue his research interests.
