Course summary

Overview

If you're a graduate healthcare practitioner aiming to become a competent and confident critical care nurse, our course will prepare you for delivering quality, safe care in a demanding environment.

It’s well recognised that adult critical care nursing is a demanding and highly skilled role requiring comprehensive knowledge and understanding for good practice.

Our course will effectively prepare you both clinically and academically to become a competent and confident critical care nurse. It’s delivered by well qualified teachers and carries a nationally recognised award accepted by healthcare provider trusts and independent sector healthcare organisations in the UK. Our course is mapped explicitly against the recommendations of the National Standards for Critical Care Nurse Education.

Assessment

Your theory will be assessed through a reflexive assignment to explore and enhance your emotional literacy, a short answer examination paper-based around a clinical scenario and an oral examination (viva). An essential element of assessment is the time spent working within critical care with level 2 and 3 patients (Intensive Care Society 2009). The support of clinical mentors is used to achieve step 2 and step 3 competencies as determined by the Critical Care National Nurse Network Leads (2015).

Careers

Employers value the generic postgraduate skills that this qualification assures, as well as the specialist knowledge that it provides.
