Target Audience


Course Description

This three-day course is designed to provide critical care and progressive care nurses with a review of AACN’s core cur-riculum. The course combines central knowledge-based lectures so that nurses working in the PCU and ICU arenas will have a review of AACN’s certification blueprint. The first day will provide the critical care provider with an essential re-view of nursing care and interventions designed for the ICU setting. The second day will combine both the critical care and the progressive care areas. Information essential to each will be presented in a combined method still complying with AACN’s certification blueprint. The third day is specifically for the progressive care provider and completes AACN’s blueprint for system review. This review is not an introduction to the environment of the ICU or PCU, but a comprehensive update for the professional already in practice at the bedside and is preparing for the certification examinations.

Key Learning Outcome

  • After completing the program, 80% of participants will report an increase in knowledge and confidence necessary to pass the certification exam.

Program Objectives

This program prepares the learner to:

  • Discuss and practice test-taking skills.
  • Review critical anatomy, physiology and pathophysiology of each system.
  • Discuss significant assessment and diagnostic findings relevant to the critical and/or progressive care environment.
  • Discuss clinical presentation as well as specific patient management of commonly seen critical care conditions.
