Full Program Descriptions
This certificate program prepares the Registered Nurse to provide comprehensive care to critically ill newborns and their families in an intensive care setting. Current research and relevant theoretical perspectives provide the foundation of study for family-centred care. Application of theoretical knowledge and skills is gained by providing nursing care for infants and families in a neonatal intensive care unit.
The program is offered in two delivery modes in order to meet the learning styles and needs of adult students. All students utilize an Independent Study Theory Manual and textbooks. Faculty are available to students for in-class, online, telephone, e-mail and tutorial support. Clinical courses take place in Level II and III neonatal intensive care units.
- Full-time – on campus (15 weeks): Offered in September and January. Students attend classes at the St. James Campus in Toronto three days per week. Lectures, case studies, labs and expert guest speakers comprise the theoretical component.
- Full-time – online (15 weeks): Offered in September and January. This option is available to nurses with current experience in a Level II or III NICU, who prefer a more flexible learning environment. Live, interactive classes are offered twice a week for online discussion and facilitation of learning.
