Critical Care

Primary tabs



The Critical Care nursing program is designed to provide nurses with theoretical and practical knowledge in all areas of critical care. Providing exceptional care to critically ill patients is a huge challenge that can differentiate one healthcare facility from another. In this program, participants will learn the necessary skills to provide the complex level of care needed in today's healthcare facilities. Delivered completely online through Mohawk College's eLearn platform, participants will complete this program with an Ontario College Certificate in Critical Care. 

What You’ll Learn

The goal of this program is to provide participants with the skills necessary to deliver a higher level of cooperative and collaborative care. Over the course of this program, you will learn: 

  • Current trends in critical care nursing 
  • The importance of reflective practice
  • The rationale for completing head to toe assessments of the various systems 
  • Anatomy and physiology of each system and nursing interventions related to the care of the critically ill client and family 

How You’ll Learn
