About this title


Today’s critical care nurse needs a variety of skills and the ability to work with very different types of patients. The Basic Critical Care Training Program is designed for any nurse who wishes to obtain the solid foundation of skills and knowledge needed to safely and effectively care for the critically ill patient. Nurses who are just beginning their careers, nurses currently working with critically ill patients, and nurses who wish to change their clinical emphasis and begin working in critical care units are excellent candidates for this program. This program allows you to study when you want to and to practice valuable critical thinking skills prior to taking care of patients. This 75-contact-hour program is accredited by the American Nurses Credentialing Center (ANCC) Commission on Accreditation and is designed to be coordinated with a well-designed preceptor/mentor training program in a critical care unit. The program is based on the textbook recommended! by the American Association of Critical Care Nurses: AACN Clinical Reference for Critical Care Nursing. That textbook is required for the course and must be purchased separately. The course consists of 28 modules, as follows: Cardiac (5 modules), Respiratory (6 modules), Neurological (5 modules), Gastrointestinal (3 modules), Hematology (2 modules), Endocrine (2 modules), Renal (2 modules), Special (3 modules). Each module consists of questions referring to material presented in the text. Upon completion of this course, you will be able to provide safe, entry-level critical care nursing practice as you begin working with a preceptor/mentor in a critical care unit. Completing the Basic Critical Care Training Program will distinguish you as a knowledgeable, skilled, and committed professional.
