The Graduate Certificate in Critical Care Nursing is a 50 credit-point, blended delivery model of online and work integrated learning course. Students select one of two potential specialisations, either Intensive Care or Integrated Critical Care. The course provides students with a sound understanding of the theoretical knowledge and scientific advances that underpin the management of patients requiring specialist critical care. During the course students will apply critical care nursing knowledge in clinical practice, demonstrating their ability to competently care for patients with complex care requirements.
With clinical support from a health service employer, students will gain the knowledge and clinical skills required to understand core concepts relating to acute illnesses, diseases, and trauma in critical care services. They will also gain skills in critiquing evidence-based practice for the care management of patients and their families in these specialist areas.
The Graduate Certificate in Critical Care Nursing is a clinical coursework program of one year's duration. Students will typically take four 12.5 CP subjects across the year. On successful completion of this course, students may be eligible for entry to the Master of Advanced Nursing Practice.
