Registered Nurse - Critical Care is a one-semester program thatprepares Registered Nurses to give competent care to critically ill individuals and their families.
The combined theory and clinical courses encompass the level 1, 2 and 3 Critical Care Standards of Practice as outlined by the Ontario Ministry of Health and Long-term Care.
This program is offered on campus or online.
Structured clinical courses provide nurses with a safe learning environment to practice critical care knowledge, skills and judgement in critical care units across the Greater Toronto Area.
Due to the limited number of clinical placements available, this program has a restricted number of seats open to applicants lacking specific clinical experience.
Program Standards and Learning Outcomes
The Ministry of Training, Colleges and Universities has established Program Descriptions for college programs of instruction which do not operate under a specific provincial Program Standard. The Program Description typically describes the program purpose (a brief description of the program, potential employment opportunities and general admission requirements) and program goals (similar to program-level learning outcomes, which guide the curriculum).
