The Critical Care Nursing specialisation is available to study as a graduate certificate and as part of the Master of Advanced Practice. It is designed for registered nurses who are interested in developing greater capabilities in complex clinical decision-making.
Key components include:
- the core concepts and physiology of normal homeostatic function
- pathophysiology, pathogenesis and aetiology of conditions
- interventions and management strategies used to restore homeostasis.
This specialisation also focuses on developing capabilities in complex clinical decision-making, clinical leadership, evidence-informed specialty practice, patient advocacy and holistic specialty practice.
The Critical Care Nursing specialisation is offered as an online course studied on a part-time basis only, as concurrent employment is required. We recommend that you study one or two units per semester.
Note: This specialisation is not available to international students studying in Australia on a student visa.
