In collaboration with Manchester Metropolitan University (Manchester Met) we have designed a course that meets the needs of critical care nurses across Greater Manchester to produce clinical and academic competence in nurses, and meet national standards for education and training.
This 12 month course is aimed at registered nurses working within Critical Care and is delivered over two 30 credit modules. The programme focuses upon the underpinning pathophysiology and theory to promote a deeper understanding of critical illness and the role of the nurse in its management. The programme also uses the National Critical Care Competencies to align theory and clinical practice. The course can be undertaken at Level 6 or, if the candidate meets the specified criteria, at Level 7 leading respectively to the Certificate in Professional Studies in Critical Care (Level 6) or Postgraduate Certificate in Critical Care (Level 7).
Students must be able to attend the mandatory induction at Manchester Met, the course study days held in Manchester (7 for each module, plus scheduled formative dates), as well as the MCQ test at the end of the first module, and the presentation submission at the end of the second module.
