Introduction to Adult ICU Nursing and Mechanical Ventilation
Arizona State University's Edson College of Nursing and Health Innovation offers this certificate as Continuing and Professional Education for anyone interested.
This course offers nursing-specific content and new interactive modules to meet course objectives. While this course focuses on care of the mechanically ventilated patient, care of the critically ill patient also requires basic knowledge of a number of other areas including: electrocardiogram interpretation and management, hemodynamic monitoring, management of shock, titratable IV drips and others. Additional resources to support foundational knowledge of these areas is also available in this course. This course intends to introduce non-ICU nurses to the ICU setting.
The purpose of this course is to support non-ICU registered nurses (RNs) in their transition to caring for COVID-19 patients in the ICU setting. This course was created under the assumption that learners are registered nurses with active licenses.
