Description

Introduction to Specialty Practice: Critical Care Nursing is designed to enable students to cultivate theoretical knowledge and experiential learning of fundamental concepts in critical care nursing to support clinical nursing practice in the critical care setting. Through subject learning, students have the opportunity to further develop theoretical knowledge of anatomy, physiology, and pathophysiology directly applied to the critically ill patient, while the appropriate nursing care is blended throughout.

Subject learning begins with core concepts of critical care nursing applied to critical illness and evolves over the course of the session to managing more complex patient cases. Toward the end of the subject, students are well prepared for their complex case master-class and then have the opportunity to apply learned knowledge and practice skills through participation in a high fidelity multiple trauma patient simulation.
